Test Drive Off-Road is an entry in Accolade's Test Drive series, this edition featuring off-road vehicles. It was released for the PlayStation and PC in 1997, however there were originally plans for a Sega Saturn version also, before the project was scrapped.

Little is known about the Saturn version - it was advertised along with other versions of the game, but all screenshots stem from the PC version. Eidos were set to distribute it on behalf of Accolade in Europe - they may have cancelled this version as part of its decision to stop supporting the Saturn during 1997 (alternatively another reason - no Accolade titles were published for the Saturn, despite previous announcements (another example: Bubsy 3D)).
