4x4 Interview, Screenshots
1:04 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

GA Sports has scored an interview with Terminal Reality's PR director, Jeff Smith about 4x4 Evolution, their upcoming racing title. GA also has six exclusive new high-rez screenshots of the game available. In the quick Q&A, Smith discusses his latest project 4x4 Evolution, in which players get to race authentic SUVs around large open courses. This is an extremely unique game, as it may be the first game playable across not just Mac and PC but console as well, in this case Sega Dreamcast. Here's a clip from Smith with details on multiplayer:

What do you have planned for multiplay?

All platforms can play against each other. When on Dreamcast, only 4 can play online. PC and MACs can play up to 8 online. BUT -- A Dreamcast can play PCs and MACs and vice versa. Any combination, but just no more than 4 on DC and no more than 8 if on a PC or MAC.

It's great to hear Mac users will be able to play their PC counterparts, as well as those with the Dreamcast console. This must mean they aren't using Microsoft's DirectPlay for multiplayer features (which inevitably causes problems for platforms other than Windows). 4x4 Evolution was one of the title we say at E3 that really blew us a way - a fun, simple, yet stunningly realistic driving game the likes of which we have never seen on the Mac platorm. We can't wait!

The Adrenaline Vault has posted twelve amazing new screenshots of 4x4 EVO. Be sure to head over and check them out as well, as they're looking very impressive. Terminal Reality hopes to have 4x4 Evolution released by the end of August for Mac and PC.
