Disney Interactive Studios has today revealed the release date for their forthcoming racing title, Split/Second. Currently in development at Black Rock Studio, the team behind 2008’s well respected PURE, Split/Second will be available on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 simultaneously.
You have made the cut to join a group of elite drivers chosen to participate in the global broadcast event known as Split/Second. Racing through a city created specifically for destruction, your goal is to become the season champ where fame, fortune and glory await. But first, you must survive a gruelling 24-episode season of races in a variety of explosive locations to crush the competition and become the champion. When speed is not enough, the city is your weapon.
Players in Split/Second don’t just collide with other vehicles to knock them from the track, but can also trigger devastating events and epic Hollywood-style explosions to take out your opponents and drastically alter the dynamics of the race. Being fast is not enough as players must use strategy and pinpoint timing to obliterate huge structures and towering TV set pieces to tactically alter the track or create entirely new routes.
Split/Second, developed by Black Rock Studio, is set to launch across Europe on March 26th 2010, courtesy of Disney Interactive Studios.
