Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad for PS3 (PSN)

Hey PlayStation.Blog! We’re pretty stoked to be able to say that our digital racing title, Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad, is nearing the finish line and will be launching on PlayStation Network next Tuesday, June 26. We’ve been hard at work on this fantastic and surprisingly deep arcade-style racer for quite some time now. Now buckle up and I’ll explain why you should you be interested in Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad.

First of all, as some of you may know, 2XL Games has a very strong racing game development pedigree. Many of our lead programmers and artists worked on the MX vs. ATV series and here at 2XL have put out several extremely successful racing apps and games. We are proud to be among the premier racing game developers.

What makes a top quality racing game? Having fun learning how to master the driving physics, then using that mastery to find the fastest line around the track. Since you’re driving on dirt, this game is all about learning to power slide your vehicle around the corners while staying on that perfect line. Start your turns a bit sooner than you think and slide through that apex to hit your marks!

Secondly, we’ve put a ton of effort, thought, and man-hours in to ensuring that this is one of the most polished arcade racing experiences available. Everything in the game is fully 1080p, supports 5.1 Dolby Digital and all runs at a super smooth and crisp 60 frames per second. We call it “Liquid Color” because everything flows fluidly past you once you hit top speed. Keep upgrading your top speed, because the faster you go, the more visceral your experience!

We’ve also thrown a lot of extra elements and features to provide more depth and replayability. The Career mode follows Jeremy’s bid for the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series championship, and allows you to pick your rig from a wide variety. The further you progress in the game, the more you can upgrade your ride to your specific driving style by beefing up your handling, top speed, acceleration and braking. All of the varied environments feature dynamic obstacles such as breakable fences, rock slides, falling trees and more – no two races are ever alike!

And of course, which racing game worth its salt would be complete without a robust multiplayer and the ability to leave your friends in your virtual dust? In Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad you can compete with up to eight racers online, then track your progress with real-time statistics tracking and a deep leaderboard system.

There’s more than I have room to write about, but rest assured that Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad brings a lot to the table, especially with a modest $9.99 price tag. There’s a dearth of quality offroad racing titles on the market currently, and our talented and experienced team is filling that void with Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad. Again, we’re launching next Tuesday so definitely check it out – see you off road!

Looks amazing and you can’t beat $9.99.
A great digital offroad game like this and I can say goodbye to the Dirt franchise for good, with their incomplete games and modes I don’t even want to play. Bravo!

Will there be a demo for those on the fence to try out?

    Sorry, we didn’t create a demo version for this one. Check out the trailer; it is all gameplay footage and should give you a good idea of what to expect.

I love me some off road racing! Will there be a demo? How many tracks are available in career mode? Will there be vehicle damage? And if so, will it affect your handling?

Thanks! :)

    Sorry, no demo. There are 23 different races in the career mode spread across 6 unique tracks. No vehicle damage in this one or handling impacts. You do have 3 unique handling choices to pick from for each vehicle, as well as upgrades.

    Good choices for sure. Our goal was to at least compete with them and do it for under $10. :)

+ devilmosh on June 22nd, 2012 at 5:22 pm said:

Without a demo, it’s too hard to tell how well a racing game really plays until the reviews come in, and ten bucks is still a lot of money in my house to spend blindly, I’m afraid. I searched for trailers on YouTube and in addition to them (which reminded me of old sega arcade racing), I found one xbox review of a demo that trashed it, so I’ll wait.

Nice. Get this thing on Vita, my friend!

+ RydogV on June 22nd, 2012 at 8:14 pm said:

Hmmm…I think I will definitely check this out. Will it support my Logitech Driving Force GT wheel? Regardless, you can’t beat a $10 price point. Ever since I watched “Dust to Glory” I have searching for a great off-road racer. The Dirt and various “Baja” games never delivered for me. I hope this is the one :)

Will this be for US only, or will you release it in Europe too?, I hope it will have a platinium trophy aswell! :)
But it’s a buy Anyway, I love racing games, and this looks good at a wery good price too :)
Just wondering if it’s any reason for waiting for a Europe release, or if I should buy it from the US store right away! :)

Nice! For $10 i’ll most definitely be buying this. Looks kinda like the Dirt franchise racers. Not to veer off topic but does anyone know when episode 2 of the walking dead game will come out? I’t was supposed to drop 2 months ago and i cant find any info anywhere on why it hasnt been released or when it will.

I’ve tried this game on XBLA. Great frame rate and performance :)

Is it possible to disable the counter-steering assist? I think it’s a bit pointless and makes driving to easy!

    Select the “Fast, Slippery Tires” option when choosing your ride and that will give you more control. You can also adjust the steering sensitivity in the Options menu.

I’d really like to see a demo for this, even if only one track… any racing game is a complete gamble if we can’t check out the physics before committing.

Will rally be single car tight track type racing or multiple car racing? also just to give you some applause, i was planning on buying GT5 PSP but as soon as i saw that trailer and the cars flipping around i decided to get this instead.

    In rally mode, you are racing against the clock to each checkpoint. While you may encounter other vehicles on the track, you aren’t racing them directly. It’s all about beating the fastest time to each checkpoint.

Do you have a list of wheels supported?

I have the older version of the Logitech Driving Force GT, it is the Logitech Driving Force Pro. It is supported by GT5, Dirt3, etc., is it supported in this new game? Please some one tell me they have the Logitech Driving Force Pro,
