View Full Version : Carball Version 2.6 Released

21st June, 2006, 02:02 AM
We are pleased to announce the release of CarBall 2.6, an original UT2004 mod. CarBall is multiplayer soccer with cars, combining goal scoring with weapon pickups and vehicle power-ups. Imagine Mario Kart mixed with Fifa, multiplied by Wipeout XL.

CarBall is unique in changing the game's focus from killing other players to driving, teamwork and fun with physics. The addictive gameplay is simple to learn, but difficult to master. Players must combine scoring prowess with defensive awareness, while mixing in smart team play, use of weapons, and some fancy maneuvers.

The custom vehicles are capable of not only flipping, jumping and other acrobatics, but also of using various power-ups to score, escape or blow your competitors away. Chaos and unpredictability are common in CarBall games, even ones with skilled team work and communication from both sides. Far more than other games, CarBall will make you laugh as much as it will make you jeer and cheer.

You can view some of the available media created specifically for this release such as Wallpapers + Screen Shots, Video Clips, and the new Official Carball Trailer here:
