Eidos one of the world's leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, today announced its return to the world of extreme wrestling with Backyard Wrestling 2: There Goes The Neighborhood. The sequel to the genre- bending phenomenon Backyard Wrestling: Don't Try This At Home, Backyard Wrestling 2: There Goes The Neighborhood is currently in development by Paradox and will be available for videogame consoles including the Xbox(R) video game system from Microsoft in the Fall of 2004 in North America.

"Harnessing the power of the Enviro-Mental(TM) gameplay engine, Backyard Wrestling 2: There Goes The Neighborhood will continue blazing the trail of unprecedented environmental interaction and over the top violence," says Kevin Gill, Brand Manager at Eidos. "The inclusion of online play will finally allow gamers to deliver pain to opponents from around the world. With its completely re-designed and expanded create-a-wrestler system, an impressive new grappling system, more diverse move-set, solid hardcore soundtrack, and online play, BYW2 offers the complete wrestling package this Fall."

Eidos has partnered with Quazal to incorporate online play into Backyard Wrestling 2. Quazal's SyncSim for Net-Z engine is a deterministic networking system, allowing stations to connect and play against each other with no chance of divergence. So, when gamers have got an opponent lined up for a moonsault off of a ladder, and timing is critical, they know that everything is synchronized perfectly between the connected stations.
