Invictus Games and Project Three Interactive today announced that Cross Racing Championship 2005 (CRC 2005) has reached gold status.
CRC 2005 is the most accurate re-creation of real life Autocross, Rally Cross, Off-Road, Dirt track, Rallying, Road Racing and Circuit Racing seen to date. The game allows the player to experience the thrills of high-speed on and off road racing across vast open terrains. The player can contest over 65 races across six distinct environments, ranging from icy mountainous regions and lush countryside to parched desert areas and beaches.
Project 3 COO Erik Schreuder said: "We are very pleased with Cross Racing Championship 2005 going gold and are convinced that both simulation and arcade racing gamers will enjoy this unique game with its distinctive crossover approach. During the last months we have been closely working with Invictus to bring the game to the next level and I feel we have done exactly that: CRC 2005 now is not only great looking, but also offers great handling."
Tamas Kozak, Managing Director of Invictus, added: "This is a great moment for Invictus Games. After years of hard work, we think our best game ever has finally left our doors. I want to use this opportunity for a big 'thumbs up' to everyone involved for his or her enthusiasm and trust in this game."
Kozak: "With the help of Project Three Interactive and the growing CRC 2005 community, we were able to raise the quality of the game to a very satisfying level that we are both proud of. We have been putting all the experience we have had with driving games into CRC 2005 and we can't wait to see the first reactions from the community and press."
A spokesperson of Project Three Interactive added that a new demo will be available around the initial release of may 20th. The new final demo will include both single and multiplayer action and is supported by the All Seeing Eye online game browser.
