NOBILIS announces the release on PlayStation®2 of Mountain Bike Adrenaline featuring Salomon

Nobilis and Salomon's partnership strategy continues with the development of its range of Outdoor sports video games.

Nobilis' collaboration with Salomon, established in 2004, has lead to the creation of a genuine respect for "Action & Outdoor sports".

Outdoor sports are about the predominance of nature, and the absence of limits and rules, apart from the riders' own credos: creativity, discovery and sensations of freedom. The paradox of freedom and creativity is that equipment is essential but the rider must also forget all about it. The essential ingredients of the games' magic formula are creative sports persons, limitless changing game terrains, hoards of equipment and innovative products, a recipe that will stir the instincts of every "Action & Outdoor sports" fan.

Live for the thrill!

Mountain Bike Adrenaline featuring Salomon is a new approach to outdoor sports, giving genuine freedom rushes, and full-on free rider attitude.

Attempt the most prestigious ATB slopes in the world!

Speed, dexterity and a daring nature are the only conditions you'll need to win, beat records and unblock new ATBs, locations and modes.

Features

4 extreme locations - Hawaii, Canada, USA and France - to hurtle down steep slopes following for each track your instinct dozens of ways to accomplish a same slope, each one with a true challenge.

4 game modes: Arcade, Stopwatch, Challenge and Freedom.

Arcade - One aim: build up as many points as you can, in the given time: speed, jumps or balance, you will be spared nothing! Collect a number of bonus points (gains in points, speed and time) which can be located on the map via radar.

Stopwatch - Go from A to B in the best time possible: that's all there is to it! Compass, arrows, track indications will help you if you wish.

2 types of challenges:

- Downhill: get from point A to point B in the quickest possible time,

- Cross-country: collect all the objects in the given time.

Challenge - Familiarize yourself with your rider through 32 short and diversified tracks. Perfect for training and quick improvement!

4 types of challenges:

- Dexterity: Complete a marked-out course without straying out of bounds (this challenge necessitates a very good control of the rider),

- Jump: the final score is based on the total distance covered in jumps,

- Tricks: execute series of spectacular figures,

- Wheelie: ride a defined zone touching the ground as little as possible.

Freedom. Ride with a total freedom: there is no time or score constraint.

This mode is unlocked during the previous games: explore the map in total freedom and find the key sections of the trail; train in total freedom; familiarize yourself with the rider.

Different trails are offered in each mode.

Choose among 6 characters (3 men, 3 women) in accord with the challenges, each one detaining its own specificities.

6 crucial record-beating factors at stake:

For the ATB: speed, resistance and braking choose the right settings from the selection on offer!

For your rider: Power, resistance or retrieval choose your strong points!

2 gauges to be closely watched:

Power gauge: When a rider makes an effort (in a climb for example), he uses power and his gauge drops. If the gauge is empty, the rider will have trouble pedalling! In semi-automatic and manual modes, make sure you use your gears so as not to consume all the power gauge.

Concentration gauge: Press the o button and you enter concentration mode: time slows down and control of the rider becomes easier. The "bullet time" effect is very useful in the challenge mode and on trails requiring great precision.

8 camera positions.

More than 80 bonuses to unlock: the freedom mode, riders, challenges, teams, drop points,

Mountain Bike Adrenaline benefits from the caution of the main MTB trademarks: Lapierre, Kona, Cannondale, Qbikes and Specialized.

Thanks to an up-to-date graphic engine, «Fresh Engine®», get ready for a great sensation of freedom and discover very detailed and realistic graphics.
