SGO Weekly: Skater XL, DRIFT21 & more!
New update adds multiplayer to DRIFT21
505 Games announced the first version of multiplayer mode launched for DRIFT21. Players putting in hours fine tuning drifting skills across challenging circuits can now compete head to head in multiplayer racing features up to six players.
ECC Games S.A. aimed to create a place where players have full control over their session and experience. To facilitate this, the team created a model where practice mode acts as a lobby where players can experience multiplayer. During these sessions, up to six players move freely around the map with the ability to create tandems, racing to accumulate drifting points while engaging with other racers via text chat. In addition, the ‘events’ module allows players to join a race with others and go head-to-head. Those who do not wish to compete will not see the other racers and vice versa.
