Today, Activision announced that it has signed a distribution deal with System 3 to bring Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli to the US market. Scheduled for a release sometime in the late summer of this year, Ferrari Challenge will be hitting the PS3, PS2, Wii and Nintendo DS and intends to deliver a sleek, fast-paced racing experience in true Ferrari style.
Ferrari Challenge, despite its accessibility, is considered a simulation racer with over 15 international circuits to enjoy. Multiple gameplay modes are also included, like Ferrari Challenge Seasons, Quick Race, Time Trial and Endurance modes. Besides a finely-tuned single-player experience, Ferrari Challenge will also boast online multiplayer for up to sixteen players at a time.
"Without a doubt, this is the defining Ferrari experience for videogames," said Mark Cale, CEO at System 3. "It has been a collaboration with professionals on every level and we've truly captured the power, beauty, and excitement that is the Ferrari Challenge Series." Dave Oxford of Activision Publishing also comments: "For the last sixty years, Ferrari has been synonymous with precision, performance and elegant design, so expectations for the game will be high from auto enthusiasts and racing game fans alike. Everyone involved in Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli has been dedicated to ensuring this product over-delivers on the experience of this legendary brand."
The press release concludes by noting that downloadable cars, tracks and other customizable options will be provided on a monthly basis for Ferrari enthusiasts.
