Cars! With guns! Online! That's NCsoft's upcoming MMO Auto Assault in a nutshell. Currently recieving a final buffing, the pre-order box of the game is scheduled to roar into stores on March 17, granting plucky purchasers the chance to participate in the final weeks of the public beta. Rest ye not though, for NCsoft has announced the pre-order version of the game will come in both Standard and Collector's edition flavours.
