nail’d’s single-player campaign features multiple configurable modes and races including Tournament, Time Attack and Quick Event. The multi-player mode allows players to compete head to head in a range of race-types locally or online. Earned points will determine a player’s position on leader boards. Based on the player’s performance and ability to pull off stunning feats of speed and glory during each race, they’ll unlock exciting new components to customize their vehicle.
- High-Octane Speed: nail’d aims to be the fastest off-road racer of them all – each track is engineered to keep players on the edge of their seat with anticipation of what’s behind the next hairpin bend. What’s more, nail’d focuses on players utilizing its amazing turbo boost ability for incentives rather than points, supercharging the game’s sense of lightning-fast speed.
- Extreme Terrain: nail’d, while set in real-life locations such as Yosemite Park, is designed to reflect the over-the-top arcade nature of the game. This is a world where impossible tracks and broken and bent laws of physics reign supreme!
- Over the Top Jumps: There’s nothing like flying off a cliff edge and then falling half a mile towards the ground. Sounds like fun? Throw-in dodging the blades of several towering wind turbines and struggling to nail the perfect landing with your opponents trying to knock you from your ride. If ‘big air’ in other games is earth-sized, Nail’d is like a twin galaxy of stomach-in-mouth terror.
- Intense Head to Head Action: Up to 11 AI opponents will keep players on their toes; they say death comes from above and that’s very often the case in nail’d. It’s not all one way though, players can knock opponents from their vehicles and for extreme punishment they can deal a crushing blow from the sky by landing on top of their opponents.
- Straightforward Arcade Fun: It’s not about gear ratios and weight distribution – nail’d is simply push button - go fast - try not to die in a ball of flaming doom! Easy to pick up gameplay and over the top environments, jumps and spectacular deaths make this game a thrill to play or even just sit back and watch.
- Stunning Visual Effects and Outdoor Environments: Using Techland’s Chrome4 engine, nail’d features cutting-edge visuals including expansive vistas, highly complex geometry and a host of visual effects such as mud and water splashes.
- nail'd is truly a hellish ride. No other racing game has ever featured such differences in altitude! Only those who master daring jumps into unknown depths at ultimate top speeds stand a chance to win the challenging action races in nail'd. Steep slopes, suddenly appearing obstacles and surprising turns in the track demand sharp reflexes, requiring players to give their all. Through its insane bursts of speed, nail'd will catapult you from one adrenalin boost to the next.
- In a tournament, players will charge through diverse geographical track settings, e.g. between the redwood trees and sheer granite mountain faces of Yosemite National Park.
- Players in nail'd get to choose between various vehicle classes, including motorbikes and quads. Once they have picked their wheels, it's time to hit the track and prevail against challenging AI opponents. A compelling soundtrack by well-known bands helps to urge you on to do your very best.
Moreover, a multi-player mode allows you to secure one of the top ranks in the leader boards of global online tournaments.
- nail'd, the blisteringly fast off-road racing game from Deep Silver, has inspired members of several Metal bands to compose an entire soundtrack especially for the game.
- With its absolutely insane track design featuring unexpected turns, deep chasms and high velocity jumps at breakneck speeds, nail'd send players' adrenalin levels through the roof. This is the intense feeling that the musicians wanted to express in their uncompromising, high energy tracks.
- Illustrious names from the contemporary Metal scene, including Raymond Herrera and Christian Olde Wolbers (Fear Factory, Arkaea), Pat Lachman (Damageplan), Wayne Static (Static X), Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed), Stephen Carpenter (Deftones), Jed Simon (Strapping Young Lad), and John Boecklin (DevilDriver), have got together in the studio to add a wicked soundtrack to the game.
- Together, these musicians have created a rock-hard Metal soundtrack for "nail'd". Besides various instrumentals, it includes three dedicated "nail'd" songs: "Count for Something", "Through Walls of Flame"" (sung by Jamey Jasta), and "Decimator" (vocals by Wayne Static). All lyrics were specially written for the game.
- In addition, licensed tracks from Slipknot, Queens of the Stone Age, Backyard Babies, Rise Against, American Sixgun, Aggressive Chill, and Slaves on Dope help turn on the heat in nail'd even more.
