We'll get to drive around assaulting other people in Twisted Metal next year but this isn't quite the same thing…
Activision has announced Blood Drive , which features a "post-apocalyptic gladiator arena filled with zombies with attitudes and armored war machines." Scheduled to release for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in November, players will take control of "motorized death steeds" in a brutal televised game show and battle each other – and stumbling, nasty hordes – to the death. Those marauding hordes will include "undead frat boys, cops, strippers and bachelorette partiers, each with their own special brand of death and devastation." And in the midst of it all will be those insane war vehicles, heavily armored and heavily weaponized for your destroying pleasure. A bunch of gruesome events set up as tournaments will take place in 6 unforgiving environments, and the game will also boast several multiplayer modes where up to four friends can do battle at any given time. So, there will be lots and lots and lots of death, "one bloody tire-tread at a time."
Not really sure who's developing this one, but we know it'll go for the slightly cheaper $49.99 price tag. We'll definitely have to see some gameplay before getting excited but it's…quite the premise.

Blood! Death!! Gore!!! Sign me up!! ^^/
Wow, an Activision game that ISN'T COD, GH or Tony Hawk!!!
Anyways, doesn't really interest me. My money is on QUALITY games, like LittleBig Planet 2, Infamous 2, Gran Turismo 5, Killzone 3, Twisted Metal, The Last Guardian, Uncharted 3 (we know it's coming)… basically anything exclusive to PS3.
Then there's Rock Band 3, Dance Central for Kinect, Halo Reach, Gears of War 3, Mass Effect 3, Zelda Skyward Sword, Kirby's Epic Yarn…
I kinda feel sorry for the new franchises trying to start, so many top notch quality titles and so many established franchises this generation to compete with, only way to go is download arcade titles. More innovation there lately and it's cheaper.

"undead frat boys, cops, strippers and bachelorette partiers,"
Where's Justin Bieber on the victim's list?? I'd pay full price for that….
On the other hand, please no strippers, it would be such a waste…

Kinda looks like a last generation game.
$50 for this? Yeah right!
please tell me it's a PSN title, that screenshot looks PS1-ish. Anyway not for me. Car Combat is over.
nah, car combat would be fine. Its just that they have waaaayyy to much going on. I gotta kill you, but at the same time take out and/or avoid several different types of zombies, while driving a vehicle. But what is over is the apocalyptic, futuristic, televised bloodsport theme. public deathmatches became boring almost 15 centuries ago.

Whats up with the difference name and pic? This better be a 9/11 thing.
I'm playin around 🙂
so nice to see some car combat games creeping in!
id love to see a open world one, i mean who said car combat games have to be confined to a track, or a preset road like in most NFS games.
id love to see a car combat game fully open like burnout paradise, go wherever you want, whenever you want and blow up whatever you want!
If i remember correctly, almost all the NFSs since Underground had huge cites to explore.
yea they did, im talking about in race how the circuit is traced out for you theres blocked off streets and that.
thats one thing i loved about burnout paradise the fastest car is not always going to win, its more about which route you take.
id love to see a car combat game like that, completely open world not like NFS where you have blocked off streets and such.
LOL this game looks like fun! It'll probably join my "guilty pleasure games" (games I like that I should not like)
This sounds a lot like Carmageddon, except you're running over zombies.
WERE ARE YOU BEN ?! its time for news update
Ben doesn't deserve a day off?
Basically a 3rd person version of the PC game, Zombie Driver.

looks fun, if i can get it new for $20 maybe…
I loved Carmageddon so I will probably give this a try.
Looks like it could be fun for me.
Especially how I like to mow down citizens in GTA4, lane split at full speed, and hit cop cars just to make them chase me. And stealing firetrucks, ambulances, and racing them down the streets with my siren on just for the extra shitze & giggles.
The only real goof I made was where I was actually trying to light a real cigarette while playing the game & I unexpectedly crashed right into the rear end of a cop car at a red light.
Sooo, of course that set off all the police alerts & I had to put it in reverse & go flat out, pedel to the metal, and fishtailing it out of dodge(with that damned lit cigarette still in my hand).
Well, after zigging & zagging left & right down various streets, I had just about out-drove all the surrounding cop cars except for one helicopter still pursuing me, but almost at the distance of me being able to lose him too.
But…..I didn't drift fast enough to make my very last right turn at a "T" intersection & I wound up rolling my stolen Hummer right into the bay.
Boy, I really hate that hospital, it blatantly overcharged me for a band-aid & 2 aspirins!
