News: Davilex announces Knight Rider 2. Part one of the 80s revival begins.
Crank up the Trenchcoat Club and let that "Theme From Knight Rider" rip as K.I.T.T. and Michael Knight are taking another spin around the video game world. Last year, Davilex Games created Knight Rider: The Game for the PC and now they plan to bring Knight Rider 2 to the PC and PS2 this fall.
As in the first Knight Rider, the player will play K.I.T.T. and must use all the unique features that this famous car was capable of in order to successfully complete missions. Whether its driving in ski-mode in narrow alleys, utilizing night vision to see where others can not, chasing the bad guys with incredible speed by activating the Turbo Boost or scanning buildings to analyse a situation, Knight Rider 2 will still offer all the thrilling features associated with the original K.I.T.T. car of the TV series.
In Knight Rider 2, KITT is now also capable of Combat mode which will raise the gameplay element significantly with the player using different car-based weapons to fight off robots, armoured vehicles and of course Garth, Michaels evil twin-brother and arch enemy. Mini Games such as Dirt Track Racing and The Shooting Gallery add to the excitement and fun. These Mini Games may be unlocked by successfully completing certain missions.
Furthermore, new tracks and environments, some with unconventional surroundings, will definitely add to a fantastic gaming experience. In this second game, players will be able to immerse themselves in the world of Knight Rider playing out numerous action packed missions providing hours upon hours of fun. A multi-player mode will allow breathtaking split-screen action between two players.
Davilex has also said that they are listening to player's feedback on the original game and will incorporate some of those ideas into Knight Rider 2. My suggestion: If William Daniels is not the voice of K.I.T.T., then I'm not playing. OK, maybe?the die-cast car of K.I.T.T. sitting on my computer desk says otherwise.
Knight Rider 2 is scheduled to ship in Late 2004.
