Monster Jam Showdown takes advantage of cutting-edge technology to create lifelike, meticulously detailed environments as well as an unprecedented lighting and physics system.

Developed with Unreal Engine 5, Milestone has been able to empower gameplay possibilities and seeks to provide a fulfilling experience able to give players all the best of Monster Jam, and much more.

In addition to enjoying all the action of the official competitions, players will be able to drive iconic monster trucks in unique environments, facing a variety of events which will make the fun as big and as loud as the sport itself. Monster Jam Showdown will feature a total of 66 official Monster Jam trucks (40 trucks will be included in the base game and 26 will be available through free or premium DLCs), and more than 140 paint jobs to unlock and apply. In order to create a faithful reproduction of Monster Jam live events, fans will compete in all three categories of venues, namely American football fields, baseball stadiums, and speedways, providing varying experiences between rectangular, diamond, and oval layouts.

Beyond that, players will be able to drive their favorite Monster Jam trucks in three original environments inspired by the American great outdoors: the barren desert of Death Valley, the stunning forests and crystal rivers of Colorado, and the wintry, wild mountains of Alaska. From official competitions such as head-to-head racing and freestyle to specially designed events, a total of 10 different game modes will grant a robust mix of arcade experiences both online and offline, including split-screen.
