162w ago - Activision Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has announced today that Blur will be offering Double XP all Halloweekend along with a PS3 developer play session.
To quote: In Blur, when you hit level 50 in the multiplayer system, you have opened up all the cars, activated all the mods, unlocked all the game modes, and hopefully have a decent strategy for all the tracks, from the tight turns of Hackney to the one-way trip down Mount Haruna.
And when you reach level 50, well, there's nowhere else to go. Except around the track, of course. Preferably very quickly.
And then, much like Modern Warfare 2, you face a decision: Do you keep playing with all the big toys, or do you challenge yourself by hitting a Legend rank and building up your reputation and garage again, based on pure skill?
As I write this, I'm level 40 or so. I'm going to get some more racing time in this week. And this weekend, the Blur developers at Bizarre Creations are offering a little Halloween treat - double XP from Friday the 29th through Sunday the 31st.
These are the perks when your studio's logo is a jack-o-lantern. That means for every race, you get twice as many fans, which means ranking up twice as fast,...
