Downhill Domination Announced for PS2
SCEA announced today Downhill Domination will arrive exclusively
for the PlayStation 2 in the summer of 2003. From the developers of
Twisted Metal: Black and War of the Monsters, Downhill Domination is the first
downhill mountain bike racing game for a next-generation console. Sony and Incog
Inc. have signed professional riders, licensed manufacturers, and official
courses from around the nation. Downhill Domination places players behind a
customizable mountain bike in order to
race environments and perform stunts at very high speeds. The game allows either first or third-person viewpoints and features 14 riders, five of which are pro-riders. The goal of Downhill Domination is to gain corporate sponsorship and win the Downhill Domination Championship.
"Due to its vertical racing style and competitive nature, the sport of downhill mountain bike racing has globally reached participants and spectators throughout the U.S., Canada, Japan, United Kingdom, Belgium, Spain, and numerous other countries," said Ami Blaire, director, product marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America. "With the upcoming release of Downhill Domination, we are able to deliver the first extreme sport of this nature to PlayStation 2 fans while expanding the racing category to new heights."
