"We’re creating huge memorable moments on par with the biggest blockbuster action films,” said Nick Baynes, game director, Black Rock Studio. “Action racing has captured the imagination of video game fans worldwide and we’re going to redefine that experience with Split/Second.”
Behind the game is developer Black Rock Studios,whose most recent work includes the off-road racing game Pure. It claims that Split/Second will be an intense racer in which competitors can trigger destruction on the track to take out their opponents. Set within the world of a hyper-competitive reality television show, the ultimate goal will be to become the season champion. Competitors in Split/Second don’t just collide with other vehicles to knock them from the track - they can also trigger explosive events that drastically alter the dynamics of the race. Players must use strategy and pinpoint timing to derail opponents, tactically alter the track or create entirely new routes.
