It looks as though Twisted Metal may include an online pass when released next month after all, according to a report on The Gamers Hub (via Joystiq). When the site asked the game’s QA lead Justin Trease during a hands-on demo at CES if the game would include an online pass of some sort, he replied “yes,” without providing details. However, if it includes one, it will likely be similar to other online passes, meaning you will have to buy the game new in order to get a code to play online. Eat Sleep Play’s David Jaffe said in December he would “prefer” the game not to include an online pass, but said ultimately, it wasn’t his “call” but Sony’s.
Twisted Metal has officially gone gold, and will be released February 14 in the US and February 17 in the UK.
