TransWorld Snowboarding Shipped

Atari shipped TransWorld Snowboarding(TM), the next generation action sports game, to retail stores this week for the Xbox(TM) video game system from Microsoft. Working with TransWorld Media, a major cultural force in the action sports industry, Atari has delivered the most compelling gameplay and technology to create the most authentic snowboarding experience available with real pros and tricks, extreme locations and the best real-world equipment and gear. "You can’t get any more fun than TransWorld Snowboarding," said Jean-Philippe Agati, senior vice president and general manager of Infogrames’ Los Angeles studio. "From the awesome graphics that bring alive the environments and characters to the insane animations for hot tricks and wipe outs, TransWorld Snowboarding delivers ’what’s next’ in the action sports genre." Developed by the snowboarding fiends at Finland-based Housemarque, TransWorld Snowboarding challenges players to fill the boots of 10 snowboarding professionals, including Tina Basich, Barrett Christy, Andrew Crawford, Kevin Jones, Peter Line, Jussi Oksanen, Todd Richards, Wille Yli-Luoma, Daniel Frank and Nicola Thost. Each pro rider is equipped with his or her real-world shredding styles, intense boarder animations and special tricks. TransWorld Snowboarding features wide open, go-anywhere levels in 17 locations, including the USA, Finland, Switzerland, Canada, Germany, France, Austria, Italy, and Japan. Each area is rendered with the awesome graphics power of the Xbox, delivering jaw-dropping weather effects, special-effects lighting, shadows, particle effects, bump mapping, anti-aliasing and environmental details on mountainside villas, ski resorts and other obstacles. Treacherous terrain and steep cliffs, modeled after actual slopes from around the world, add to the danger and create massive hang times. Long rails and downed trees line each course, tempting players to slide and grind while natural snow kickers and ramps dot mountains for players to launch off. Players can combo tricks off picnic tables, stairs, cars and even telephone wires. Multiple half-pipes and quarter-pipes are also included to perform tons of tricks and combinations. New levels are unlocked by completing career mode objectives and perfecting tricks and getting top scores. TransWorld Snowboarding offers six modes of play, including TransWorld Tour, Single Session, Free-ride, and Time Attack. TransWorld Tour (the career mode) features five different types of levels including, Slope Style, Straight Jump, Half Pipe, Boarder Rally and Backcountry. Along the course, photographers stand by to capture your best tricks for the TransWorld Snow Magazine cover. The game also offers exciting one-to-four player multiplayer modes. Through the partnership with TransWorld Media, TransWorld Snowboarding includes all the elements from the real professional snowboarder lifestyle, including licensed equipment, clothing and accessory sponsorships from DC Shoes, Forum Snowboards, Burton Boards/Boots/Clothes, Hurley Clothing, Nixon Watches, Billabong Apparel, Salomon Snowboards and more. The game also offers customizable music playlists from in-game licensed tracks and original game music spanning the hip hop, rock, electronic, and reggae genres. Music tracks include Hoobastank’s "Crawling in the Dark," Quarashi’s "Tarfur" and Apex Theory’s "Apposibly." TransWorld Snowboarding shipped to retail outlets this week for the Xbox with an estimated retail price of $49.99 and an ESRB rating of ’T’ for Teen.
