På senare tid har offroadracingserien upplevt något av en renässans med #Motorstorm som den klarast lysande stjärnan och i augusti ger sig en ny konkurrent in i leken - #BAJA. Spelet utvecklas av #2XL Games för #THQ:s räkning och om vi ska tro den entusiatiska utgivarens pressmeddelande kommer det bland annat att bjuda på 40 fordon och en öppen värld på närmare 260 kvadratkilometer att tävla i.
