4X4 World Trophy Edit

In Europe, the PlayStation version was released as 4X4 World Trophy in 2000, because Infogrames Multimedia didn't own the Test Drive name (The reason why Test Drive 6 was published by Cryo Interactive in Europe), and so could not use it. The game itself is the same as it's american counterpart. It was re-released in 2003 under the Best of Infogrames label.
