Doritos Crash Course 2 coming soon to XBLA

crash_course_2_game_boxart

After quietly appearing in February on a Xbox Marketplace listing, Microsoft has officially announced Doritos Crash Course 2 from Behaviour Interactive, the follow up to 2010’s popular advergame by the same name. In the sequel,  “run, jump, slide and wall jump your Avatar through four new worlds of irreverent obstacles, traps and pitfalls.” As players make their way through the course, they will compete for the best completion times and collect stars to unlock further progress. While no online multiplayer is mentioned, a player can “compare your best time against up to three asynchronous games clips of your friends.”

Like the first game, Crash Course 2 will be free to play, but this time around gamers will have the option to buy coins, giving them the ability to “unlock new courses, power-ups and vanity items.” While no exact release date has been announced, the game will hit virtual shelves this year. In the mean time, hit the jump to make your way through this obstacle course of screenshots.
