Codemasters on Taking the Race Online with GRID 2's Multiplayer

50°
76w ago - Codemasters Ben Walke shared details today on taking the race online with GRID 2's multiplayer.

To quote: We've talked previously about World Series Racing and the single player experience of GRID 2 - now it's time to talk multiplayer.

Multiplayer in GRID 2 is big. Bigger than anything we've done before. More depth, more choice, more progression... but before we get to the BIG details, we'll just chuck in a little reminder that you can play in two-player split-screen across our game modes. It's old school, and we love it.

GRID 2 utilizes a multiplayer system that is completely separate to the single player portion of the game. We want to bring the best of online gaming to the racing genre and a dedicated, distinct game is the only way we could achieve what we wanted.

As you progress you'll be able to earn XP and cash, which will allow you to purchase cars and upgrades, and you'll constantly have new challenges and rivals.

You'll also be able to showcase your individuality by customising and modifying your cars. With over six billion possible combinations to choose from, you'll certainly stand out on the grid.

The Clean vs. The Dirty

Naturally these two types of racers don't get on very well, it's the Cats vs. Dogs of the racing...

God of War: Ascension Rises Today, Final Multiplayer Allegiance Revealed

100°
80w ago - Game Director Todd Papy has officially revealed the final multiplayer allegiance for God of War: Ascension which arrives today.

Below are the details, to quote: God of War: Ascension is out in North America today! It represents the culmination of two and a half years of blood, sweat, and tears on behalf of the God of War team at Santa Monica Studio.

We wanted to create the best looking, best playing, most compelling entry in the series to date, a game that took every aspect of the experience to a new level, that sought to show long-time fans a different side of the iconic Kratos character, and that added something entirely new yet addictively deep to the franchise: multiplayer, which many of you joined us in playing and improving during our Beta weeks ago.

We put a great deal of thought and effort into the multiplayer modes you'll discover in Ascension, including the recently revealed 2-player cooperative Trial of the Gods. Supporting this new addition to the God of War universe and the community we're hopeful builds around it for a while to come is of the utmost importance to us.

Looking forward to being among the first to receive access to an exclusive early demo of The Last of Us, included in each retail copy of God of War: Ascension? The new target date upon which that...
 

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World DLC: Online Multiplayer & Wallace Wells

50°
80w ago - Sony Producer Guillaume Gad shared a video today showcasing Scott Pilgrim vs. The World DLC including Online Multiplayer and Wallace Wells below.

To quote: When we created a game called Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, we meant it. "But," you might have asked, "what about playing against other Scott Pilgrim fans from around the world?"

Sure, our side-scrolling beat-em-up based on Bryan Lee O'Malley's award-winning graphic novels let's you play as everyone's favorite lovable loser: the titular Mr. Pilgrim.

And yes, you could team up with your pals for some couch co-op, playing as one of Scott's kooky cohorts in this charmingly 8-bit retro-gaming world (all while rocking to the chiptune sounds of [Register or Login to view links]). But what about online multiplayer?

With the latest downloadable content, your question has been answered. Out now tomorrow on PlayStation Network for $4.99, this new DLC not only adds Wallace Wells to the roster, but also brings online multiplayer to the game. No more crowding on the couch (unless, of course, you want to... but that's your business).





Instead, you can summon your pals from around the world to take on Ramona Flowers' evil exes - and...
