Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
Brain in a Jar, the independent racing game developer has announced that its Kickstarter project for OpenWheel, a multiplayer online racing simulation, will now include Playstation 3 via the Playstation Network.
OpenWheel is a genuine change of pace for online racing on PS3. Offering immediate multiplayer action, OpenWheel uses Brain in a Jar’s accurate racing simulation engine, but with an added twist of car construction, driver customisation, team creation and championship management, allowing players to build real identities for themselves on the track. Up to 32 players can compete in a single race across OpenWheel’s 12 track layouts, with a drop-in play system removing all the roadblocks to getting into the thick of it. Players can join a race at any point, including races already underway – because the lifeblood of racing is wheel-to-wheel dicing with the opposition, whatever your position in the race.
