In a press release sent to Gaming Cypher this morning, developer Targem Games today announced that BlazeRush, its new fast-paced top-down racing combat title is coming to PlayStation 3 and Windows PC on October 29.
With a focus on multiplayer and fast competitive race action, BlazeRush allows up to four players shared-screen local play, and up to eight players online. Both local and online players can join at any time, even during a race.
In a new twist to the arcade racing genre, BlazeRush does away with the traditional damage counters and health bars to keep the ferociously fast races in progress. The only way for a player to die is by falling off the death defying track and plummeting to the landscape far below.
Races are made all the more competitive with a vast assortment of weapon power-ups that players can use against racing opponents: pushing, throwing, stunning or slowing down other vehicles on the track. It’s not just about winning the race, there is also the constant challenge of trying to knock out rivals while trying to keep your vehicle on the track.
Take a look at the BlazeRush teaser trailer below:

BlazeRush will be available October 29 through digital download distribution service Steam, priced $9.99 / € 9.99 (USA PS3 version will follow at a later date).
