 The game will be available for XBox 360, PS3, Windows and Mac. 

Throughout the game, players will also be able to get more weapons and upgrade vehicles using money won in races.  While much is still not known about the plot of the game, it is known that Matthew J. Costello, story writer for Quake 3, will be working on this game.  The trailer for the game shows a post-apocalyptic world similar to the Mad Max movies.  In an interview, designer Tim Willits revealed that the game's fictional apocalypse is based on 99942 Apophis, which is a near-earth asteroid discovered in 2004 that has a small chance of striking earth.
