Update: We actually got this wrong. The new modes are going to be released in 1.3 ("Cagney") not 1.2 ("Bogart"). Cagney hasn't been dated yet, but we'll let you know as soon as we have more info.
First up is Online Stunt Run, an eight-player competition where drivers compete for the highest score within a two minute time limit.
Online Road Rage is another mode in which one team of 'runners' attempts to reach checkpoints, with the other team attempting to take them down.
Finally, there's Marked Man. In 90-second intervals, one player is chosen as the marked man, and the other players attempt to take him (or her) down.
Nine days to go until we see what all the fuss is about. Hit the link for more info.
