Carmageddon, the controversial 1997 racing title that found itself banned in several countries, finally has a release date for Android.

Stainless Games released a YouTube video today announcing the impeding release. On top of trailer, they also broke news that when the game releases on May 10th it will be free to download during the initial 24 hours in the Google Play store. As they say, the early bird gets the worm…

The developers describe their game as “the original freeform driving sensation, where pedestrians (and cows!) equal points, and your opponents are a bunch of crazies in a twisted mix of automotive killing machines. The game features anarchic drive-wherever-you-like gameplay and over-the-top surreal comedy violence. It’s the racing game where racing is for wimps.” The title sports a 36 level career mode, 30 playable cars, “28 dangerously deranged Opponents, and 11 different environments. The gamer also has the ability to choose between several different control methods.

The mobile version of Carmageddon is essentially the original release with a new coat of paint and touchscreen controls. It released last October for iOS and sits at a respectable 74 on Metacritic. It is also currently holding at 5/5 stars from App Store reviews. Be sure to check out the trailer below, and mark your calendars to download it for free on May 10th. And of course, always check both ways before crossing the street…
