Hit the off-road tracks as Baja: Edge of Control HD arrives on Xbox One and PS4

You may well have played Baja: Edge of Control. After all, it released back in 2008 to deliver some of the most hardcore off-road racing to gamers around the globe. Now though Baja is back – in HD!

Available right now for £23.99, Baja: Edge of Control HD on Xbox One and PS4 is the remastered version of the 2008 release, ensuring that more than 1000 miles of terrain, the steepest mountains and the thickest mud have never looked so good.

The visual overhaul that comes with the HD remake is pretty much a gimme, but improved controls, a new UI and an easier career start are amongst other improvements to Baja. Throw in split screen and online multiplayer, more than 160 vehicles, over 100 tracks and tons of event types, and you should find an off-roader that will appeal to many.

Won’t you? Well, you’ll only find out by reading our upcoming review. But in the meantime, if you wish to take a punt, the Xbox Games Store (or PS Store for that matter) holds the key to any download.

Game Description:

Baja: Edge of Control HD is the carefully remastered version of the original off-road racer from 2008 and contains more than 1,000 miles of the toughest terrain including the steepest mountains, thickest mud and deepest canyons known to man.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One. A massive racing fan, Forza 4 was the daddy of all Xbox titles but Forza Horizon 3 now trumps that. Online first person shooters are my hell....probably because my reactions are so poor, but give me a little Indie title and I'll be in heaven. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
