MotoGP 2 to be launched for Xbox and PC

The latest version of the official MotoGP game for Xbox and Xbox Live! is set to be launched this spring, coinciding with the commencement of an historic new season in the MotoGP World Championship. The highly anticipated MotoGP 2 gives race fans around the world the opportunity to compete online, rubbing elbows at 200mph with up to 16 riders on one track during a single race, with the option of choosing any of the racers and machines from the 2002 MotoGP World Championship, or even customising their own bikes and riders.

MotoGP 2 for Xbox and Xbox Live! offers eight different racing modes including stunt, GP, time trial, training challenges, tag, Live, multi-player & single race, and features all 16 circuits from the official MotoGP calendar. Developed with a variety of innovative gameplay elements supported by revolutionary graphical and technical features, MotoGP 2 for Xbox and Xbox Live! is licensed by Dorna Sports, television and commercial rights holders to the MotoGP World Championship since 1992, and published by THQ Inc., a leading worldwide developer and publisher of interactive entertainment software.

"We are very excited that THQ and Xbox have chosen MotoGP as one of the first products for their new Xbox Live! platform," commented Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO Managing Director of Dorna Sports. "I hope that all Xbox fans can enjoy the excitement of MotoGP 2 and get an almost real experience of what a professional racer feels when riding a 200hp motorcycle at 200mph."

Tim Walsh, Senior Vice President of International Publishing, THQ, added: "We're thrilled to offer MotoGP 2, the next instalment in ultimate head-to-head motorcycle racing for the Xbox. Being one of the first Xbox titles online with Xbox Live! has given THQ's MotoGP franchise a head start on the competition and MotoGP 2 has enough horsepower to give race fans and video game fans alike a thrilling competitive experience."
