Summary

Have you ever fancied speeding around off-road terrain at breakneck velocity in the baking heat and a flimsy vehicle? Yes? Well, the chances are that in real life that would make you dead as a doornail. Fortunately, THQ Nordic has an alternative for you. It's Baja: Edge of Control!

The game comes from the core team members behind the MX vs ATV franchise. Based on the real life Baja 1000, it pits players against some of the roughest terrain that Mother Nature has to offer, not to mention other racers hungry for danger and glory.

Vertical environments, ever-unpredictable terrain and constant peril are spread across 100 square miles of landscape in this brutal off-road racer. Race in elite Trophy Trucks, 4x4's and Buggies to test your nerve! Events include master hill-climb, circuit, and rally races as you vie for sponsorship in your chase for glory.

As in the real Baja 1000, heaps of emphasis is put on suspension and the customisation thereof. Getting the balance just right will be crucial to crossing the finish line first, as will customising the rest of your vehicle with the 200 authentic vehicle parts up for grabs.

It's all much safer than real life...
