The PS3 and Xbox 360 are all integrating with Facebook, and a wide variety of games can be played on Facebook too. Because of that, it’s not surprising that Blur will be integrating with Facebook now as well.
Activision’s racing title Blur will allow fans to challenge their friends and share achievements directly from inside the game through Facebook.By seamlessly integrating a “Share” button, Blur lets players choose to light up the competition in both single and multiplayer modes by sending game challenges to friends and posting in-game photos, racing stats, unlockable items and much more on their Facebook pages.
“Blur is the first multi-platform videogame that connects the television to Facebook, and for the first time, videogame audiences on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC will be able to link their console gameplay to their network of friends,” said Robert Kotick, CEO, Activision Blizzard.
Blur is a powered-up racing experience in which players collect addictive and intense Power-ups throughout each course, including the ability to blast other cars out of the way with huge bursts of energy, boost speed with Nitros, drop Mines and even generate defensive shields to fend off other racers. Blur offers online multiplayer supporting competitive and cooperative gameplay for up to 20 racers, including team racing and objective based events, and also supports 4-player split-screen.
This could actually be pretty cool, especially if you have a lot of friends with Facebook that can compete with you. Get ready to race when Blur comes out next week.
