Default Blur Announced - From the makers of Project Gotham (PC, PS3, RRoD_Box)

ACTIVISION AND BIZARRE CREATIONS TO REVOLUTIONIZE RACING GENRE WITH BLUR™

Activision's Newest Brand Marries Intense Wheel-to-Wheel Racing Action with Spectacular Power-Ups and Real-World Cars and Locations
Santa Monica, CA - May 19, 2009 - Activision Publishing (Nasdaq: ATVI) is set to revolutionize the racing genre with the debut of Bizarre Creations' newest project, Blur™ -- the ultimate wheel-to-wheel racing action experience.

The game drops players into heart-pumping, electrified racing action with 20 cars on a track all targeting the finish line and battling each other as they trade paint and collect intense power-ups, including the ability to blast other cars out of the way with huge bursts of energy, boost their speed, and more.

While controlling photo realistic cars, gamers can use offensive and defensive attacks as they battle for the lead and careen through real-world track locations ranging from L.A. and San Francisco to the streets of Hackney, UK and the treacherous roads of Barcelona, Spain.

"We did our homework and saw a huge opportunity to move beyond traditional racers and create a game completely focused on making racing 'fun' again," said Martyn Chudley, Creative Director, Bizarre Creations. "Blur delivers a new style of racing experience for all gamers, regardless of their experience, skill or genre preferences. Everything the player does, both in their cars and with their cars, is a dramatic adrenaline rush; it's a real blast!"

"We know that racing can be fun for everyone, and we are excited to enter this genre with a game that keeps players in the pack and combines fun with intense racing battles," said Maria Stipp, EVP and GM of Owned Properties, Activision Publishing. "Bizarre Creations is one of the most creative studios in the industry with a rich heritage of top-rated racing games and we are excited to partner with them on Blur, which is set to break the mold of traditional racing games."

Beyond the action-packed racing filled with fast curves, sneaky alternate routes, hair-raising jumps and fully realized damage models that provide for spectacular crashes, Blur's narrative is presented through Bizarre's innovative new community-based interface, reaching far beyond the game itself. This unique story-driving social network evolves dynamically as players compete in different races, make new friends, rivals and fans, and connect with other racers both in-game and in real life.

Looking beyond Blur's single player story, gamers can engage in competitive and team-based multiplayer races with up to 20 players online, or on a single console via 4-player split-screen. Bizarre is especially excited to introduce Blur's original social gaming experience - Custom Groups, where anyone can create unique multiplayer modes based on their favorite ways to play the game. These new modes are immediately shared through Blur's social network, expanding the game in ways that are only limited by the gaming community's creativity.

Blur is planned for release this fall for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, and the PC, and is currently rated "RP" (Rating Pending) by the ESRB.

I have no idea what to think about this

TOTAL ARCADE, with power up weapons, and crazy lightnings.

after Activision got a hold of Bizarre Creations, i was happy that finally they are out of Microsoft thumb and we might finally see PGR on PC. This is total shock for Bizarre Creations first racing game on PC.

What a baby. Don't discount it. Who wants a PGR on PC? Not me, if I wanted that I'd play 360, even then it wasn't that great. I like this game. Something different, not just another port.

This game seems to be really bizarre.

Arcade racing game? I think i'll pass. PGR was already a little on the arcade side. Oh well, who knows maybe bizzare creations will include a new version of geometry wars in this one?

C'mon people! Have you never played WipeOut or Twisted Metal? This game was just announced and instead of posting pre-rendered crap like the rest of the industry we get to see some actual in-game footage. The game is still in development and I'd be surprised if this ended up looking like that. You're way too quick to judge!

This sounds like Wipeout for the 21st century... I can't imagine it being any fun though...
Realistic cars with powerups? Sounds wierd to me, but will check it when it's out.

The word blur + bizarre creations previous games give me very bad vibes.

Just reminded me of the cone racing in PGR 3 which was unplayable due to the motion blur used.
