Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Disney team up to bring us Cars 3: Driven to Win, the world-class racing game featuring characters from Disney-Pixar’s Cars 3
Warner Bros. and Disney are teaming up to brings us a Cars 3 video game. I don’t know why but that a really surprising partnership to me. However, Disney games have been kind of all over the place and seem to be focused more on mobile than anything, so it makes sense they would go with an established partner like WBIE. I mean they are responsible for the Arkham series.
Cars 3: Driven to Win is coined as a “World-Class Competitive Racing Game Inspired byDisney•Pixar’s Cars 3 [that]Combines Action-Packed Adventure with Beloved Characters.” It is being developed by Avalanche Software, newly re-opened under WBIE, and will be available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch, and Wii u beginning June 13, 2017.
“It’s been an amazing experience to work with the team at Pixar once again for this new game for the beloved Cars franchise,” said John Blackburn, Vice President and Studio Head, Avalanche Software. “With Cars 3: Driven to Win, we wanted to create a game that allows fans to extend their experience with this great film, and also feel the thrill of speeding through the tracks, participating in races, and mastering tricks and techniques for fun with the whole family.”
The game picks up after the final big race of the Cars 3 movie; extending the storyline with new action-packed adventures, allowing players to join Lightning McQueen and Cruz Ramirez as they prep to beat rival Jackson Storm. The game features more than 20 customizable playable characters that include popular heroes from the franchise and next generation racers.
