Codemaster Xbox support

Codemasters commits to Xbox with key brands and an exclusive new game

Codemasters, one of the world's leading video game developers and publishers, has given the Xbox (tm) a massive vote of confidence as it confirms four blockbuster titles for the console.

Codemasters' dedicated Xbox title is revealed as being Ultimate Blade of Darkness, a brand new extension of the best-selling PC title Severance: Blade of Darkness.

Currently under development at RebelAct Studios in Madrid, Ultimate Blade of Darkness is an epic fantasy hack and slash adventure that displays some of the bloodiest combat scenes seen in gaming. With visuals that amaze in terms of technicality and combat action, Ultimate Blade of Darkness is due winter 2002.

From Codemasters' multimillion-selling key brands, gamers' favourites TOCA Race Driver*, LMA Manager** and Mike Tyson Heavyweight Boxing are all being developed to exploit the future-generation capabilities of the Xbox.

Racing game fans will be ecstatic to learn that the 3.5 million-selling TOCA series continues with TOCA Race Driver. On Xbox, the game's aggressive 14-car races are sequenced with astounding cut-scenes, combining stunning race action with an evolving narrative thanks to the incredible graphics handling of the console.

Codemasters' reputation for delivering spot on sports games will be well in evidence with Mike Tyson Heavyweight Boxing and a new LMA Manager for Xbox. Mike Tyson Heavyweight Boxing puts players face-to-face in hard-hitting matches while the new LMA Manager will offer an enhanced version of the world's most popular football management game for video game consoles. LMA Manager will be retitled in key territories utilising individual territory branding and licenses from across Europe.

John Hemingway, Codemasters' Development Director, enthuses: "With our Xbox titles we will provide a level of realism significantly higher than on any previous platform, through the refinement and level of detail in our graphics work to heightened audio, physics, damage modelling and frame rates. The power of the Xbox that enables us to achieve this will make for some of the richest, most exhilarating and dynamic gaming experiences ever produced by Codemasters."


* TOCA Race Driver will be marketed under the following territory titles:

UK / remaining RoW TOCA Race Driver
Germany DTM Race Driver
Australia / New Zealand V8 Supercar Race Driver
USA Pro Race Driver

sounds like the x-box will do good things for the console arena, as long as it doesn't BSOD!!! :D :D
The X-box is almost enough for me to jump into the console market even

Codemastars are also introducing anti-piracy methods which makes pirated software decrease in functionality over time. It will be interesting to see how long it takes to find a way around software degradation protection methods.
