Click above for high-res gallery of Midnight Club: Los Angeles

Rockstar Games is a little busy right now ahead of its big release of Grand Theft Auto IV, but the video game developer had enough time to announce that the next installment of its Midnight Club racing series will land on the Xbox 360 and PS3 come September 9th. Joystiq reports that Midnight Club: Los Angeles will feature "no load times, no tracks, and no rules," which means much hooning can be had in the City of Angels with a large selection of infinitely customizable cars. Among those available to gamers will be the first use of the new Dodge Challenger and Chevy Camaro in a racing game. Having already been officially revealed to the public, the Challenger in Midnight Club: Los Angeles looks spot on, while the Camaro appears to sport a few quirky details like its headlights that Chevy probably didn't want to reveal in a video game or just weren't ready when it came to digitize the car. Driving your dream cars in a video game certainly doesn't replace the real thing, but it's fun to do things with a digital version that you wouldn't dream of inflicting on an actual car.

      Actually both of these cars are in Project Gotham Racing 4
      (although its the convertible camaro)

      I imagine the game will feature the biggest and shiniest spinners and gangsta rims on Escalades and Hummers so that you can post up freeze frames online. The last Midnight Club was a farce and this one looks to be headed down the same path.
      No thank you very much, I'll continue with GT5 and Forza2.

        Two completely different styles. Over-the-top Arcade VS. Hardcore simulation.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Yes yes yes! midnight club 3 was about the most fun i've ever had in a racing game. excellent!
        • 6 Years Ago
        Is it more fun to hit peds in MC 2 or Carmageddon? I miss playing that game, I'm going to have to find that disc again.
        • 6 Years Ago
        the driving real fast part, or the hitting pedestrians part?
        • 6 Years Ago
        ha the fast part...i miss my F1 LM. =D
        • 6 Years Ago
        You couldn't hit pedestrians in Midnight Club 3 but unless you mean Midnight Club 2 then yes that was lots of fun :)
      • 6 Years Ago
      ya and race driver GRID will also have both concepts on the discs so hopefully MNC:LA gets both production versions

      This game looks amazing, I've always loved the Midnight Club series!!! Way to go Rockstar, yet another grade A title. Also, have you guys every thought that maybe the differences in the car pics are actually aftermarket bodykit designs? They did say that they are fully customizable, and I must say so myself those headlights on the Camaro look sick....The Skyline appears to have an aftermarket bumper as well I think, looks great!!
      • 6 Years Ago
      Fack, no PC version again...
      • 6 Years Ago
      forza 2 had the challenger as a download car. it was available late last year ,early this year.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Previous iterations of this game sucked donkey balls. This one looks pretty hot, graphics-wise at least. I wonder if the physics are still comparable to "Cruisin' USA."

      Loving those lamp covers on the Camaro.
      • 6 Years Ago
      The Camaro pictured in the game is sporting 60s style headlamp covers that the originals had. I must say, they look pretty good on the new one too.

      Both cars look thoroughly badass.
        • 6 Years Ago
        The GT-R looks like it has mufflers from an 88 Maxima. What's up with that? The production version's are almost as big as the tail lights!
          • 6 Years Ago
          Uh, because that's the OLD R32 (?) Skyline GT-R.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Challenger has the crossair grille. :S
        • 6 Years Ago
        Uh, because that's the OLD R32 (?) Skyline GT-R.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Doesn't Need for Speed Carbon have both of these?
        • 6 Years Ago
        Eh, I guess it has both of the concepts, not production versions.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yea, it does have both, although i suppose they're both the concept version in NFS, so this is the first game with the production versions then, maybe? The concepts are nearly identical o the production versions, so it doesn't really seem like that big of a deal.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Those Camaro side-mirrors aren't the ones of a production car..
      • 6 Years Ago
      I'm surprised there are no "OMGZ!! That should of totally been the new Knightrider!!" yet... As there always is whenever Autoblog posts up a picture of a black American car.
        • 6 Years Ago
        OK, I'll humor you:

        "OMGZ!! That should of totally been the new Knightrider!!"

        There. Satisfied? :-p
