MX vs. ATV Untamed has been rated “E” for Everyone and retails for $59.99 on PS3 and 360, $39.99 on PS2 and PSP, and $29.99 on DS.

“MX vs ATV Untamed has extremely broad consumer appeal, making it a must-have for core gamers, off-road racing fans and casual gamers,” said Dave Miller, director of global brand management, THQ. “Its vast open worlds, all-new event types and innovative career modes translate into the deepest off-road gaming experience to date and will help build on the franchise’s position as the world’s best selling off-road brand.”

“MX vs ATV Untamed is a tribute to Rainbow Studios’ ability to innovate with each new title and continuously develop triple-A, million-unit selling properties in a very competitive genre,” said Jack Sorenson, executive vice president of worldwide studios, THQ. “Their Rhythm Racing physics engine has proved adaptable across all platforms and contributed to everything from huge, beautiful next-gen open worlds to one-of-a-kind Wii racing functionality to extremely entertaining handheld game-play.”
