Blur is an arcade style racing video game for Microsoft Windows, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360, 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.
Career mode is the singleplayer campaign in Blur. The goal is to defeat nine rival racers, by completing races and challenges, and then winning one-on-one. Each rival has a unique persona and race style. Leaderboards and challenges allow players to compete indirectly with friends.
The game supports a maximum of 20 players per race, and 4 players with split screen. The two multiplayer modes are racing and motor mash. They can be played free for all or in teams. 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.
