Baja: A New Off Road Racer Announced

THQ announces Baja, a new arcade-style off-road racer coming to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in August of this year.

From Shacknews:

Quote:
Baja sports more than 40 vehicles in eight classes including 4x4s, buggies and trophy trucks for use in multiple game modes like hill climb challenges, open class and circuit races. The game also offers the Baja endurance challenge, in which players will engage in grueling races that can last up to four hours over a huge stretch of terrain.
Quote:
In addition to single-player, Baja supports multiplayer for four players via split-screen, or twelve online.
4 hour races!!! That's too hardcore for my blood.

My attention span in most racing games is about one lap of Nürburgring.

I usually stick to rally games because they are great to just pick up and play.

I really don't see why someone would race the same track for 4 HOURS. It sounds so damn boring.

My fav. Since the days of Lemans Racer on the Dreamcast I have been addicted to things like this. Even better is that its Baja. I am all over this.

I'm friends with much of the development team, many of whom worked on games like Motocross Madness and ATV Offroad Fury. The main designer has been wanting to make a baja truck game for a very long time, so this game has the potential to be amazing.

I have a friend who completed the entire 24 hour event in the Le Mans racer for the Dreamcast. It let you save during pits, but still- 24 hours playing the same race. Damn.
