Ubisoft, Midway and Tigon Studios announce that Wheelman, the action-packed driving game featuring film star Vin Diesel as undercover agent and expert driver-for-hire Milo Burik, has shipped and is available at retailers starting today. Wheelman is available for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC and is rated "T” for Teen by the ESRB.

In Wheelman, Milo Burik gets caught in a crossfire of chaos and corruption while trying to stay one step ahead of local law enforcement and rival gangs in the beautifully re-created city of Barcelona, Spain. In Wheelman, the player’s car is the weapon. Players weave in and out of traffic, engaging in intense vehicular warfare, leaving wreckage in their wake as they take out anything or anyone that gets in the way with innovative super moves like "Vehicle Melee,” "AirJack” and the "Cyclone.”

"First and foremost Wheelman is designed to be action packed, accessible and over-the-top driving fun,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft. "Wheelman’s dynamic systems adjust to the player’s experience level so that everyone – from a novice to an expert gamer – can play and feel as if they’re an action hero in a driving game.”

Inspired by Hollywood’s most famous action-sequences, Wheelman will deliver powerful cinematic moments throughout the game’s compelling storyline.  In addition, there are more than 100 side missions available, giving players plenty of opportunities to steer through the streets of virtual Barcelona, while earning vehicle upgrades, achievements and trophies.
