We've been pretty tight-lipped about the online multiplayer features that you'll see in Need for Speed The Run, but now that it launches in less than two weeks it’s time to put the cards on the table. Check out the new Need for Speed The Run Multiplayer trailer!
When the development team set out to implement online multiplayer in The Run they wanted to create a system where players could easily get together and race. Plain and simple. All you need to do to get into an online race is select a Playlist, find some opponents (always best if it's with Friends), select your car, and start racing. Even if you're late to the party you can still get into a race very quickly with the new "Join Race in Progress" feature. No more waiting for your friends to finish their race; just join and you'll be on the road in seconds.
There is a lot more to online multiplayer in The Run so we're going to be posting up a game designer interview on Saturday where we talk all about the online and we'll give you all a lot more specific information. Stay tuned...
