AVault heeft een nieuwsbericht gepost over de opvolger van Carmageddon II. Carmageddon: Death Race 2000 gaat de naam worden:
orrest says the engine is much more powerful than previous iterations, with real-time shadows, environment mapping and more. It will support all new processors and cards, including TNT2, Voodoo3, Matrox G400, S4 and so on. Although he could not be too specific, he said the team has a “brilliant” DirectX6.1 and DirectX 7 engine, meaning they have support for every card with a DirectX driver. SCi is not going hardware only, though, something many developers are opting to do, so there will be a software mode for older machines and non-3D accelerated cards.
There is a setting and basic plot in place, and Forrest says the team is striving to give Deathrace 2000 a great narrative. Although he would not provide details, he did mention the designers will be using the game engine for some “superb storytelling.” The gameplay is also under wraps, though Forrest mentioned huge animated environments, draw bridges that open and close as ships pass under them, animated water and cranes that drop weights on opponents. We wanted him to go on, but he stopped there. Essentially, players will have to use more thought to get through the game.
