    I think it's released for PC at the end of this month.

    I've played the Xbox Beta a bit and it's ok, it's a bit like Mario Kart all over again where you can be leading on the last lap then get completely destroyed and end up 17th.

    For the sake of my PC I think I'll give it a miss. :p

    Out on PC on the 28th/29th May.
    Been waiting for it for ages :)

    Any idea if it'll have Steamworks (as it's available on Steam, and wouldn't mind saving a few bob buying it retail and activating)?

    Quite enjoyed the 360 demo and Im glad its coming to PC. The sheer chaos of being in the middle of the pack in a twenty player race with everyone firing whichever weapon/defence they have is just brilliant :D.

    The few tracks in the demo were good and had the odd short cut, cars were good, especially smashing people out of the way with a Landrover Defender.
    If I got a good start couple with trubo/shield I never got caught by the pack and in a game like this thats just not where the fun is.

    Not sure about longevity but while it lasts the carnage is top notch :cool:.

    I presume it will be £29.99 on Steam.

    I wonder if this will be locked to 30fps like Bizarre's console games are.
