HERMOSA BEACH, CA – 9/21/2010 – Deep Silver, the games label of Koch Media, a worldwide producer and distributor of digital entertainment products, announced today that SBK®X, the newest addition to the simulation Superbike World Championship racing series developed by Milestone, will be shipping in America with the Legends Pack DLC on disc for console versions.
The Legends Pack brings the biggest names in Superbike racing back onto the track! Players can destroy the competition as “King” Carl Fogarty on his beast of a Ducati 996, or take control of Ben Spies’ devastating Yamaha R1. With 16 legendary racers to choose from, players will be able to take the competition of the present and face off against the masters of the past! No matter who they choose, they’ll ride the track as a Legend.
“We feel that bringing these luminaries of the circuit as playable characters to SBK X is a real honor,” said Geoff Mulligan, Chief Operating Officer at Deep Silver, while strapping on his racing helmet. “While fans of the Superbike World Championship will enjoy the robust selection of current competitors to race as or against, having the men who truly left their mark on the sport represented will really excite them. Who wouldn’t want to race as their favorite competitor, whether they’re currently racing or not? With the Legends DLC pack built into the console versions, gamers will be able to do just that.”
SBK X offers a wealth of options to the player: whether pursuing a highly realistic racing experience or just thirsty for a push-button go-fast thrill ride, players will find what they need. Add in constantly evolving tracks, 90+ racers to choose from, three separate racing classes, 16 player multiplayer, and a robust career mode, and players will find that SBK X gives them everything they’re looking for.
SBK X will be coming out on 10/19/10 for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft® for $39.99 and on Windows PC for $29.99
