With the release of Drag Mode fast approaching it’s time to start discussing some of the details of the new mode. We’re going to ease into it today with a quick overview, and than in the coming days we’ll really dig into the details. So let’s get started!
Drag mode is going to be a multiplayer race mode which means that players will be able to join a drag race through either match-making or via Private Match (no single player against A.I.). Players will be able to race against up to 5 opponents allowing for a maximum of 6 drivers in each race, though certain events will be for 2 or 4 players only. All drivers will have their own lane at the start of the race but that doesn’t guarantee that you’ll have your own lane for the duration of the race!
When Drag is first released there will be four drag events that you’ll be able to race on, including the community’s favorite drag spot, the bridge!
There’s a lot more to drag racing than just holding down the gas pedal. You’ll need to get a great start off the line, master shifting shift changing at the right times, change lanes to avoid traffic or your opponents and much more. All these are details that we’re going to get into in tomorrow’s blog!
