Fatal Inertia EX Coming to PLAYSTATION 3 in May 2008
/KOEI's Upgraded Futuristic Racer Coming Exclusively to PLAYSTATION®
Burlingame, CA - April 30, 2008 -- KOEI, recognized worldwide as the
premier brand of strategy and action games, today announced that /Fatal
Inertia®EX/ will be available at the end of May 2008 exclusively on
PLAYSTATION® Network, and only for PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment
"We're really excited about what we've accomplished with Fatal Inertia
EX," said Mike Bond, lead game designer for Fatal Inertia EX. "Gamers
will be amazed by all of the improvements we've made. Fatal Inertia EX
is a faster, more visually-captivating experience packed with new
content not found in the original."
/Fatal Inertia EX/ features a never-before-seen environment exclusive to
the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Situated amidst scorching desert dunes, the
Fatal Inertia Proving Grounds is a mecca for aspiring flight jocks
driven to prepare themselves for the mental and physical punishment of
low-altitude combat maneuvering. Along with offering a restructured
training curriculum, the Proving Grounds are also home to the game's
eight new tracks.
A re-tuned flight model improves handling and achieves higher speeds
than previously seen. Flight controls take advantage of the DUALSHOCK®3
wireless controller and give the optional use of SIXAXIS^(TM) motion
sensing technology. The game's newly-added "Master" level Quick Races
will push the fastest men and women to their limit.
/Fatal Inertia EX/ delivers heightened visuals which include new weather
effects, significant scenery enhancements, and an overhauled garage for
racecraft customization. Spread across 59 courses in seven exotic
high-definition environments including lush rainforests, massive glacier
fields, and canyons of razor-sharp rock, the beauty of /Fatal Inertia
EX/ could easily mask the harrowing thrills in this high-speed contest
*ABOUT FATAL INERTIA®**EX FOR PLAYSTATION®3*
Set in the middle of the 22nd century /Fatal Inertia EX/ is an
evolutionary sporting event that draws from the combined disciplines of
rally racing, demolition derby, and tactical air warfare. In this brave
new world of combat racing, players pilot their gravity-defying machines
through the untamed wilderness, while unconventional weapons move and
react to realistic principles of physics and magnetism rather than
follow pre-scripted motions.
/Fatal Inertia EX/ delivers a glimpse into the future of racing in
stunning 720p HDTV and in-game Dolby® Digital audio. Multiplayer
features include split-screen two-player races, online and LAN races for
up to eight players, plus leaderboards. This game is rated "E10+"
(Everyone 10 and older - Fantasy Violence) by the ESRB. Fatal Inertia EX
is developed by KOEI CANADA. For more information visit
