Screenshots: Blood Drive

If dialogue-heavy apocalypse stories aren’t your thing and Kinect ads have been making you feel physically ill, perhaps you’ll be more interested in zombie bloodsports this November? The thrill of Dead Rising 2 will have worn off by then and you can get stuck in to Activision’s Blood Drive.

Blood Drive is a gruesome-looking “vehicular-combat” game.

In Blood Drive, contestants must use their motorized death steeds of steel in a televised game show where drivers battle each other and hordes of revolting flesh eaters in an all-out fight to the death. Face undead frat boys, cops, strippers and bachelorette partiers, each with their own special brand of death and devastation – and ways to die!

While these rotting monsters wander the streets of a desert sin city craving sweet, succulent brains, your enemies have come equipped battle hardened armed vehicles, including heavily weaponized muscle cars, hot rods, and more. Amidst this gore-drenched mayhem contestants must use their head or lose it!

Sounds like a cross between Carmageddon and Terror Is Reality. I’m all for it.
