    San Jose, CA, July 29, 1996 - Accolade, a leading publisher of interactive entertainment software, today announced Test Drive: Off-Road, the next generation of road driving game for personal computers. Players take the road in four high performance off-road vehicles: the Hummer, Land Rover 90, Jeep Wrangler, and Chevrolet K-1500 Z71 while taking on the competition in vast off-road terrain.

    "The 'Test Drive' brand has been one of the best known titles in the driving game market," said Jim Barnett, president and CEO of Accolade. "Now, we're bringing the name back with one of the first off-road driving game for the PC. A new 3D engine takes Test Drive: Off-Road into the next generation of driving games."
