The MX Vs. ATV Series Comes Roaring Back With All Out

THQ's MX Vs. ATV has been a staple in racing games for the past few years, giving you the option to cruise around on a motorbike or ATV as you took on a variety of challenges within an open world. However, the series has lost its way a little bit, with MX Vs. ATV Supercross not really capturing the thunder of earlier games in the series.

Fortunately, the team at THQ Nordic is aware of this, and is returning the racing series to its roots with the forthcoming All Out, which is set to arrive next year, developed by the company that started the franchise, Rainbow Studios.

"In MX vs. ATV All Out, choose between bikes, ATVs and UTVs, refine your rider style at your private compound, blast across massive open worlds and compete head to head in various game modes! The all new Freestyle mode allows you to win with style and crazy stunts! Or go All Out and show your riding skills in Multiplayer!" the team noted in a press release.

It sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun, especially based on the in-game features that are listed below:

  • 2 player split-screen and 16 player online modes!
  • Various competition modes including Supercross, Nationals, Opencross, Waypoint, Tag and more!
  • Insane stunt system that tests your limits in freestyle mode!
  • Your own private compound that you can turn into a show room for all of your customized vehicles!
  • Vehicle tuning and upgrades with original performance parts!
  • Rider style! Choose gear from numerous companies or compete with one of the many top professional riders from around the world!

You can also check out a brief trailer for the game above, which doesn't feature much gameplay footage, but promises to bring back the gutsy, fun racing action we've come to expect from games like MX Vs. ATV Untamed and MX vs. ATV Reflex, some of the better games in the series. Here's to hoping that the multiplayer allows us to race around and challenge other players – because that's what going All Out is all about, right?

We'll see how the game shapes up when it releases for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in early 2018!
