Smash 'N' Survive collides with PSN this February


Indian studio Version 2 Games will bring a new PSN title to PS3 on February 9: Smash 'n' Survive, a game based on the life of comedian Gallagher. Oh, no, sorry, it's actually a car combat game.

Players choose one of 30 "brutal concept cars, including muscle, agile, monster, buggy and SUV vehicles," and race across a selection of ten maps, attempting to destroy one another with flamethrowers, "magneto pulsars," and other exotic implements. Game modes like group derby, "plant the bomb," and team modes will help vary the gameplay, though we assume it'll still be about smashing other cars.

Smash 'n' Survive will include single-player and two-player split screen modes at launch; online play for six players will be smashed into it in a free update this April.

PlayStation®Network THIS FEBRUARY

Heavy Metal and Destruction Collide in Vehicle Brawler Featuring 30+ Unique Cars Across

10 Massive Destructible Circuits

Hyderabad, India - January 18th, 2012 – Version 2 Games Limited, a subsidiary of Zen Technologies, India's premier console development studio and publisher, today announced that its debut PlayStation®3 release – the brutal vehicle combat Smash 'N' Survive will be available on PlayStation®Network on 9th February 2012. Featuring over 30 unique concept customisable cars, 10 massive destructible maps, an innovative single player campaign and split screen. The release of Smash 'N' Survive marks the first global PlayStation®3 release from an Indian development studio and publisher.

Featuring 30 brutal concept cars, including muscle, agile, monster, buggy and SUV vehicles, racers compete across 10 fully destructible maps, in eight action packed gameplay competitions, including vehicle mêlée combat, demolition derby, group derby, plant the bomb, protect the convoy, chase, finding and escorting your team mate and checkpoint challenge. Smash 'N' Survive features campaign mode, two player split screen and six player online multiplayer will be available in April 2012 as free DLC. To fuel the mayhem and carnage each car can be customized with innovative melee weapons including a flame thrower, sonic boom, blades, magneto pulsar and duel saw.

"Smash 'N' Survive has been developed exclusively for the PlayStation Network, and is an action packed intuitive pick-up-and-play brutal vehicle brawler, that with endless hours of single and multiplayer madness offers fantastic value", said Rajat Ojha, President of Version 2 Games, "We are proud to be the team behind India's debut PlayStation 3 release and look forward to establishing a dedicated community and expanding the Smash 'N' Survive universe post-launch with future downloadable content."

Throughout competitions players compete across a range of destructible maps including a black market, stadium, factory, ship, backyard and various arenas and can also take control of environmental factors such as tornadoes to destroy opponents' cars. Players can also upgrade their cars in both the garage and shop.

Rajat Ojha, " Smash 'N' Survive offers nuances/ideas that are not usually seen in games of this genre especially in the premise you don't need to chase and surpass the vehicles but you have to smash and 'kill' cars, whilst the group Demolition Derby and planting a bomb are also being tried for the first time. Each of the many locations offers a new challenge and objective - the territory control is where players will play dominance play by capturing the territories or assisting their friends to capture the territory, you can also try to reclaim your territory. Plant the bomb is about getting to a certain destination or conversely finding and defusing a bomb that you must find."

Featuring PlayStation®Network Trophies, Smash 'N' Survive will be available through PlayStation® Network on February 09th and is rated PEGI 7+. For more information, please log onto or

Smash 'N' Survive price TBA PlayStation®Network.
