Activision Confirms Twisted Metal-Styled Blood Drive

Activision has confirmed to be releasing a new post-apocalyptic gladiator-arena-zombie-filled title, Blood Drive. The game – set to be released in November, 2010 – features armored war machines which players will use to brutally kill zombies… and each other.

Activision’s Blood Drive requires contestants to use their motorized death steeds of steel in a televised game show where drivers battle each other and hordes of zombies. Face undead frat boys, cops, strippers and bachelorette partiers, each with their own special brand of death and devastation – and ways to die. Enemies will be equipped with battle hardened armed vehicles, including heavily weaponized muscle cars, hot rods, and more.

David Pokress, Activision Publishing stated:

“Over-the-top vehicular combat and zombies are two things that go great together. What more is there to say?”

Blood Drive features several gruesome events set up as tournaments in the game’s six unforgiving environments. Battling for top position is even promised to be even more satisfying in multiplayer modes where up to four friends can drop in and drop out of the bloodbath at any time. Blood Drive will be available this November for $49.99.

Check out the latest screenshots below. It’s obvious that the game took inspiration from Twisted Metal – one shot in particular shows a van emblazoned with an insane looking clown.
