FlatOut is a very popular racing video game for PC, PlayStation and Xbox initially released in 2004 and followed by a series of other installments during the years. And even though up until now only technology geeks with ”large screens” were able to enjoy the FlatOut action, according to a fresh press release, the game will finally go mobile and hit Android devices all around the world in the near future.
The next installment of the FlatOut series will be called ‘’FlatOut: Stuntman’’ and will be an Android exclusive once released. As you could guess from its title, the video game will focus on the ‘’stuntman’’ mode known from previous versions and should rock Tegra 3 Android devices.
The new Flatout: Stuntman will be released by Team6, an independent game developer which, aside from bringing the Flatout series to the wide public, has also been the mind behind such titles as Street Racer, Monster Trucks, Glacier or Pacific Liberator.
According to the developing company’s CEO, Ronnie Nelis, the Stuntman’s gameplay is entirely ‘’based upon very short levels, but each of them are highly addictive with a replay-value like no other game’’. The visuals, praised by all gaming enthusiasts at the past Flatout installments, are supposedly improved and should be a ‘’pleasant surprise’’ even for old and faithful fans of the series.
There’s still no word on the game’s release, nor on its selling price, but one thing is (almost) certain. Flatout: Stuntman sounds really sweet in theory and, even though it most definitely won’t be released for free on Android Market, should draw the attention of mobile gaming fans with snappy smartphones or tablets.
How about it? Are there any FlatOut fans among our readers who would like to share their view on this exciting piece of news?
