Blur is a multiplatform arcade style racing video game, developed by Bizarre Creations and published by Activision. It features over 50 licensed and custom cars, 33 tracks in 14 real-world inspired locations, visual damage modeling, and semi-realistic car physics. For an arcade twist, it also includes eight power-ups, and modifications that players can re-equip each race. Cars and modifications are progressively unlocked in both singleplayer career and online multiplayer modes with fan points earned every race. Blur integrates with its official website, Facebook, and Twitter to share race results, enhanced screenshots, player activities, and other stats.

Multiplayer can be played online and off, through preset playlists and customizable private matches. Console system link and computer local area network play is implemented.

Beta

The beta for Blur began on March 8th, and beta codes were given out from various gaming websites. The beta allowed players to test out six tracks, four game modes, fourteen fully licensed vehicles, and over thirty challenges. It also included Blur's Leveling Up system, which unlocked various items until Level 10 is reached and then, on March 25, up to level 15. The beta also allowed players to connect to Twitter to post updates via the game. Because of such high demand, Blur was made into a public beta which started on April 6th and was available to anyone, via the Xbox Live Marketplace. The beta ended May 10th.
