German developer Moon Byte Studios have released the latest details about their forthcoming smash-em-up stunt racer Crashday, which is heading for the PC, Xbox and PlayStation 2.

The game looks to us as being a modern day version of Stunt Driver, crossed with Vanishing Point and the more recently released Trackmania series, and is said to allow extra objects to be imported in to the game for use with the track editor - although quite how this will work for the console versions is somewhat unclear.

Realistic stunt physics are being billed as a key feature of the game, in which players will be required to participate in stunt shows and head-to-head challenges as part of an illegal Crash Day League, with prize money received from events going towards upgrades to your motor and additional cars available from the garage.

Moon Byte hope to include full online play, which should mean both Xbox Live and PlayStation 2 Network Gaming modes will be supported, and gameplay modes which are being touted for the final game include the likes of a team based Wrecking Mode, and point-scoring Stunt Mode.

Traditional multiplayer options such as Capture The Flag also look likely to feature in the game, along with Speed Bomb which sees you racing around trying to maintain a minimum speed above that at which the bomb will go off - similar to the film Speed. Single player modes will include standard races, last-man-standing Knock Out style races, and a Test Drive mode where you can put your car through it's paces without any specific rules.

Crashday is scheduled for release sometime during the first half of 2005, and further details about the game can be found on the official crashday.com website.
