Thrillville sequel unearthed

Activision goes Off the Rails.

Activision has confirmed it will be publishing Thrillville: Off the Rails in Europe.

It's an sequel to last year's theme park simulation that will be appearing on Xbox 360, Wii, PS2, PSP and PC. Frontier Developments will be handling the majority of development again, with DC Studios queuing up to build a DS version.

A European date is yet to be announced, although those of you in the US should expect it in October.

The glitz and glamour of Off the Rails comes from 20 new super-rides - the type your parents would probably scoff at and then force you on to see how right they were in the first place. You'll be able to jump across roller-coaster tracks and plough through rings of fire - you couldn't do that in their day.

Alongside all this will be over 100 missions, 34 multiplayer parks, and a host of tweaks to conversations and management tips.

Thrillville appeared on Xbox, PS2 and PSP last year to mixed reviews. It was squarely aimed at the family-fun market with its quick-fix mini-game fun and over-the-top presentation - close even to party-game territory. We quite enjoyed it but it lacked the polish and depth to keep us coming back for more. Head over to our Thrillville review to find out why.
