OFF ROAD: New Sega ATV Slam offers immersive experience of driving an all-terrain vehicle through any of 10 environments (like the airport at left -- with what appears to be a C130 transport -- and the desert at right), with panoramic graphics displayed on full high-definition monitor, motion simulation and realistic wind. It will be on display at EAG & VAE 2019 in London, England from Jan. 15 through 17.
 
CHESSINGTON, England — Sega Amusements International reports that visitors to this year's EAG International Exposition and Visitor Attraction Expo will be the first in Europe to experience Sega's ATV Slam racing game, which was previewed at last fall's International Association of Amusement Parks & Attractions Expo in Orlando, FL. The 2019 EAG & VAE are set for Jan. 15 through 17 at the ExCeL exhibition center in London, England. Admission to the show is free; click here to register. Sega will exhibit in booth 550.

According to the manufacturer, ATV Slam challenges the player to navigate an all-terrain vehicle through one of 10 exotic environments. There are three available game modes and five ATV choices; the player also can select one of five racing characters to control.

The cabinet features high-end graphics hardware driving a 47" full high definition LED display, a custom-developed motion platform (based on an air cylinder) and immersive enhancements such as "wind cannon" to simulate the slipstream experienced by the ATV driver. The game can be deployed singly or installed in side-by-side banked multiplayer configurations.

ATV Slam incorporates the widely-used Unreal Engine developed by Epic Games. According to Sega, the industry-leading game engine delivers a realistic sense of speed, lighting, physics and razor-sharp console quality graphics.

A novel "Artificial Intelligence" system from Sega intensifies the element of competition by adding up to seventeen AI opponents. Live face detection cameras, a realistic bike control system and ingenious "rubber-banding" makes the game fun for casual and core gamers, the company reported. An unusual bike upgrade system encourages repeat play.

"ATV Slam features a sensational cabinet that will wow players in any location," said Sega general manager Justin Burke. The cabinet emulates a life-size quad all-terrain vehicle with huge back wheels, a chrome engine compartment, stylish liveries and scintillating LED lighting effects, Burke explained. "We can't wait for our customers to experience this incredible game at EAG later this month."
