“As the long-standing off-road racing leader, THQ is thrilled to bring something completely new to the off-road racing genre,” said Richard Browne, THQs vice president of product development. “With the level of detail in each vehicle, the vast open vistas and the most realistic off-road physics to date, Baja will provide an unparalleled racing experience.”
Baja – which alludes to the Baja 1000, an actual off-road race in Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula – boasts “100 square miles of the toughest terrain Mother Nature has to offer, including the steepest mountains, thickest mud and deepest canyons ever created. With more than 40 vehicles in eight classes, including Trophy Trucks, 4x4s and buggies, Baja features a full array of upgradeable options with hundreds of authentic parts that affect each vehicle’s performance.”
It’s out in August this year for PS3, 360 and PC.
