LONDON, JUNE 14, 2012 - BBC Worldwide Digital Entertainment & Games today announced that Top Gear: Stunt School Revolution is now available for free download on iOS and coming soon on Android systems.
A follow up to the successful Top Gear: Stunt School, the entirely new game delivers fans more over-the-top tracks, stunts and cars to customise and race in true Top Gear fashion. Players will need to use their skills to jump higher, cut tighter turns and withstand destruction as they explore iconic locations all over the world including the Grand Canyon, Alcatraz, Sydney Harbour Bridge and New York City.
Developed by BBC Worldwide Digital Entertainment & Games and Supersonic, Top Gear: Stunt School Revolution lets players customise cars to the extreme with jet engines, bulldozer shovels, snow ploughs and more. Tapped into the classic Top Gear culture, the game features experimental vehicles from the show, starting with the home-built ?Hammerhead? at launch. New content will be added to the game weekly which will include more challenges, stunts and cars.
Robert Nashak, EVP Digital Entertainment & Games, BBC Worldwide said, ?Top Gear: Stunt School Revolution brings all the irreverence and humour of Top Gear to mobile and tablet gaming. Players should brace themselves for a tonne of stunts and a ridiculous amount of car customisation.?
Elements of the cars are customisable and can be modified to improve performance and visual appeal. There are three classes of vehicles:
? Compact Cars ? Light, and great for launching into the air
? Sports Cars ? Fast and powerful that manoeuvre well; great for stunts where you need acceleration and sharp steering
? Utility Vehicles ? Strong, durable and heavy; great for carrying heavy items
Top Gear, which premiered in the UK in 1977, is consistently BBC TWO's most-watched program in the UK. Top Gear premiered stateside on BBC America in 2007. The U.S. version, produced by BBC Worldwide Productions for HISTORY, and featuring hosts Tanner Foust, Rutledge Wood and Adam Ferrara is currently in production on its third season. One of the BBC?s premiere brands, Top Gear, the magazine, is the leading car publication in the UK, and the global road tour, Top Gear Live, continues to be a global success.
