With the multiplayer Beta for Blur ending next week and the game itself releasing at the end of the month, we put Adam Hartley to task on forcing information out of lead designer Gareth Wilson and getting some cool gameplay details for you.
Bizarre Creations’ Blur has been in development for a little over two years now, and focuses on full damage modeling, loads of special effects, and 50 licensed cars.
The game also includes five different power ups: Barge, Mines, Nitro, Shunt, and Shock, that you collect throughout each course, allowing you to blast other cars out of the way. It includes a single-player campaign as well as competitive and team-based multiplayer races with up to 20 players online, or on a single console via 4 player split-screen.
The game mixes Mario Kart-style power-ups with the racing action of Bizarre’s Project Gotham, which leader designer Gareth Wilson said is good assessment.
