In the near future there is no war or even death. Human dignity is absolute as free people everywhere are allowed to focus on self-actualization and higher pursuits specifically, the pursuit of high-octane car combat! Born in Triumph City, StrikeRacing is a lifestyle as much as a sport, combining ballistic ordnance with sleek and sexy sports cars, testosterone-laden muscle cars, hefty and powerful trucks and even the family sedan as they race for domination - and destruction. StrikeRacers everywhere set out to pulverize their enemies as they race for respect and the chance to "Upshift" to a higher state of awareness.

You are a brave newcomer to Triumph City - ready to begin your destructive rise to transcendence, and you must use every bit of skill and high-explosive ammunition possible to spread carnage and reach your true potential in Upshift StrikeRacer!

Product Features:

· HIGH-OCTANE CAR COMBAT WITH INTENSE RACES. Hit the road in explosive races where machine guns flare, rockets fly and a quick trigger finger is just as important as a lead foot and a steady steering wheel. StrikeRacers will traverse 20 different maps across several environments filled with short cuts, jumps and road hazards - and up to seven other StrikeRacers looking to beat you to the finish line.

· DIVERSE ARRAY OF DESTRUCTABLE CARS, HEINOUS WEAPONS AND UNIQUE ITEMS. Choose from several different vehicles in the game - from powerful muscle cars to hulking SUVs to agile minis - that can be outfitted with a wide range of heavy-hitting missiles, area of effect cannons, short-range machine guns, devious mines and much more. StrikeRacers will also find power ups and special items that enhance their shields, jam opponents' steering and provide many other benefits to help them reach victory.

· MULTIPLE GAME MODES. Multiple game modes for single-player and multi-player racing, including Team versus Team, Time Attack for the solo racer to test their driving skills against the clock, Racing mode that pits up to eight drivers against others for the best time, and no-holds barred StrikeRacing for players to pit their driving skills - and their arsenal - against other drivers.

· TREMENDOUS COMMUNITY INTERACTION. Upshift StrikeRacer provides a robust community with some of the most intense community tools available to an online game. Create your own Club community site to develop real-world friendships and extend the game experience to the web. Recruit for and manage your club, upload photos and music, share your blog and network with other StrikeRacers around the world.

· COMPLETE ONLINE GAME EXPERIENCE - FOR FREE. Upshift StrikeRacer is a free-to-play multiplayer online game, where the client download is free and many of the vehicles, body kits, accessory kits, weapons, finishes and special items can be bought only with the Reputation you generate by StrikeRacing.
