Tweet when you're winning.February 24, 2010 - Today, Activision is confirming that Twitter functionality is integrated into Blur with Bizarre Creations innovative social network interface. Unique to Blur, players will now be able to customize the text message from within the game as they share a plethora of game details. Players can choose to Tweet about race victories, how many fans they've just earned, cars they've unlocked, leaderboard ranks, send challenges to friends and much more. Basically, if you see it in game and want to tell someone about it, we've got a Tweet for that.
Here's an example from Bizarre Creations Social Media Manager, Ben Ward, using the feature.
We're excited to show more of this feature in the coming weeks, in fact, you'll be able Tweet from the Blur Multiplayer Beta that launches in March… so stay tuned!
Blur is the ultimate powered-up racing experience, dropping players into heart-pumping, electrified action with up to 20 cars trading paint as they charge towards the finish line. Drivers careen through real-world track locations packed with fast curves, sneaky alternate routes and hair-raising jumps in over 50 licensed cars as they collect and tactically utilize intense Power-ups, including the ability to blast other cars out of the way with huge bursts of energy, boost their speed, and more. For the ultimate multiplayer racing gameplay experience, Blur offers a first in the racing genre with up to 20 players online at the same time, a progressive ranking system that rewards gamers the more they play, objective based race events, and if that weren't enough, Blur brings back a fan favorite with 4-player split-screen gameplay. Blur will be available this spring for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
