2K Sports, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: TTWO), today announced Amped 3 is a launch day candidate for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. The only snowboard game to be available for Xbox 360, Amped 3 features an all-new physics engine, enhanced controls and the world’s greatest winter resorts to create the most authentic snowboarding experience. Action is interlaced with a hip storyline that encompasses the distinct snowboarder culture, style, music and attitude.
Amped 3 stays true to its roots as the most authentic trick-based snowboarding game on seven new real-world resorts. Amped 3 is three times larger than the levels in the preceding Amped games. The SnowboxTM offers hundreds of challenges at various resorts, including the option for players to test their skills snowmobiling and sledding and then have their top scored runs, hang-times and crashes automatically posted on Xbox LiveŽ online gaming service. Given the vastness of the mountains, players explore the backcountry on snowmobile to find the perfect spots and then use the Park Builder for planting their own jumps and rails.
“With Amped 3, 2K Sports has tapped into the power of Xbox 360 to create the most authentic, customized, and unique snowboarding experience for gamers,” said Greg Thomas, president of Visual Concepts, a 2K Sports studio. “Amped 3 captures the sport of snowboarding and reflects the style and attitude associated with the snowboarder culture.”
Amped 3′s Snow Tracks in-game soundtrack features more than 300 new independent music tracks. Select tracks are featured on the exclusive Amped 3 soundtrack CD, available as a pre-sell promotional item at major retailers and at 2K Sports events in November.
