Description

Interstate '76: Nitro Riders is a stand-alone version of Interstate '76: Nitro Pack, which is an add-on for the vehicular combat game Interstate '76. It takes place before the events from the original game and contains 20 single-player missions, in which the player can choose a character from among: Taurus, Skeeter or Jade (the sister of Interstate '76 protagonist Groove Champion). The missions are not tied together by a storyline but can be played in any order and with every vehicle.

Though not required, owners of the original Interstate '76 can use this product to upgrade their version of the game, making this also an add-on. New features with this add-on include Force Feedback support and support for D3D, 3Dfx and Rendition Power VR. The improvements to the game itself are: more weapons, more cars & paintjobs, a racing & a "capture the flag" mode and advanced multiplayer hosting options.
