*About Fatal Inertia
*In the middle of the 22nd century mankind's thirst for excitement has
spawned an evolutionary sporting event that draws from the combined
disciplines of rally racing, demolition derby and high-performance
aeronautics. In this brave new world of combat racing, gravity-defying
machines are no longer confined to the speedways and stadiums of
centuries past. In this grand spectacle of racing, the amphitheatre
where drivers must prove their superiority is the untamed wilderness.
Through harsh environments spanning dense rainforests to immense glacier
fields, and canyons of razor-sharp rock there is little room for error
as drivers will reach speeds of over 500 mph. But Fatal Inertia is not
merely a test of speed. The brave men and women who choose to compete
must face the mental and physical punishment of low-altitude combat
In /Fatal Inertia/ each craft will be armed with a unique array of
unconventional weapons that manipulate velocity, force and even time.
Explosive magnets that impact race craft stability and rockets that can
counter thrust and velocity are just some of the dangers drivers must
face. But with each race craft hovering just a few feet from the earth,
any misguided attempts to evade or dislodge these weapons can result in
total (if not fatal) disaster.
/Fatal Inertia/ delivers a glimpse into the future of racing in stunning
720p HDTV and in game Dolby® Digital audio. This game is rated "E10+"
(Everyone 10 and older - Fantasy Violence) by the ESRB. Press can find
