Ubisoft today announces 187 Ride or Die, a racing game that takes place in the midst of a street-racing gang war. Racing kills alone won't be enough, as you'll also have to be quick on the trigger to take out your opponents. 187 Ride or Die will ship for the PS2, Xbox, GCN and PC by the end of this summer.

"Ubisoft is bringing something unique to the racing genre, which accounts for nearly 20% of the console market," said Tony Kee, Ubisoft's VP of Marketing. "With an engaging storyline, an addictive blend of street racing and combat, and an impressive soundtrack, 187 Ride or Die has the kind of edge that will appeal to racing and hip-hop enthusiasts alike."

187 Ride or Die tells the story of Buck, a young man living a thug's life seething with money, fast cars and beautiful women. Set in the underworld of Los Angeles, Buck must defend the territory of his mentor Dupree from a menacing nemesis and his gang of bandit roughriders, led by Cortez, who are determined to take control of the streets. 187 Ride or Die features the voices of Larenz Tate (Menace II Society, Ray), Noel Gugliemi (Training Day, The Fast and the Furious), and Guerilla Black.
