Crash Time Goes Multiplayer
dtp entertainment (they just like to use lower case I guess, not good us news peeps) has announced that Crash Time IV will feature a new multiplayer mode for the first time in the series of Crash Time games.
Due for release on PC and Xbox 360 later this year, up to eight players will be able to go online and play with other gamers in challenges around more than eight square kilometres of gameplay world and drive more than 40 different cars in Cologne’s streets, highways and sceneries, including famous sightseeing spots such as the Cologne cathedral and the Rhine river bridges.
In single player mode, which has also been completely re-designed, players are chasing down a criminal syndicate, whose members are trying to stop the police and gain control over the scenic city of Cologne. Based on the German TV series “Alarm für Cobra 11” (known as “Cobra 11” or “Autobahn Cop” in several countries), players slip into the roles of the two highway cops Semir and Ben, the TV series’ main characters. Thus, players go through various missions based on the events of the TV series.
While patrolling the breathtaking German city of Cologne, Semir and Ben are called to various action-packed police operations. While responding to these calls, players also need to neatly monitor the streets. Criminal subjects and members of the syndicate are scattered all over the street. Semir and Ben need to force them to reveal hints that will lead the cops to their hideouts – in order to bring the syndicates’ organized criminal activities to an end.
