Activision adds motocross
Activision has announced a new motocross game to their 2002 videogame lineup entitled Travis Pastrana's Pro MotoX. The extreme sports game will feature well-known motocross riders including Carey Hart, Tommy Clowers, Mike Brown, Ernesto Fonseca, and obviously Travis Pastrana. However, no official release date or platform has been announced.
"Travis Pastrana is undoubtedly one of the hottest motocross riders on the circuit today and we are extremely excited to have just signed with him," said Kathy Vrabeck, executive vice president of global publishing and brand management at Activision. "The popularity of motocross events worldwide has continued to rise, with attendance numbers reaching all-time highs. As television coverage and event sponsorship has increased, motocross has become one of the fastest growing sectors in motor sports. Activision's partnership with Travis will allow us to deliver a comprehensive, authentic motocross experience that lets players compete in both freestyle riding and head-to-head racing action."
