Speeding Around Gamescom With Skylanders: Superchargers Online Racing ModePreview
Each year, Skylanders introduces an interesting update to the game remained exciting. The inclusion in this year's Car brings into play another mode, which previously only dreamed of players: multiplayer racing.
We really did not expect it. Fans jump online racing on one of the six tracks (split evenly among air, land, sea, and vehicles). Mode optimized approach to Kart Racing genre for eight players (four men and four AI), without depth Mario Kart or Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.
Bonuses (hidden within blocks of the track) is activated automatically when collected and stored for later use. Each vehicle is equipped with two weapons, which can be used to stun and destroy enemies. Ammo is limited, so you need to closely monitor the counter, not to be left without ammo in the most dangerous moment.
Manage feel different depending on the type of course you are racing. Maritime transport can dive into the water to dodge enemy attacks, but it can not turn as tight as air or land transport. Airways longer vertical, ring marks through which you can fly to increase speeds.
Of course, there are different cars for each type of race. The game comes from the land type of car, so you'll need at least one sea, and air vehicle to use these tracks. More will be added through the toys on the basis of the package during the year (instead of digital DLC).
This year, Vicarious Visions and attracting online multiplayer campaign. The studio has worked to create an experience that simulates playing on the couch with a friend. This means that whenever a player changes Skylanders, the sequence of the transition for both. Players can drop in and out easily, without having to reboot, as the local games.
Because in the first Skylanders game for young players, Vicarious Visions takes safety seriously. Players will only be able to invite people to your friends list.
While the studio can not interfere with system-level party chat, he promised that the voice will be available only between people who are in the Friends list to each other. Even if you or your child to invite two people who are not in each other's friends lists (you - a mutual friend), then each of them can only communicate with you, voice communication between them will be available.
For those who are wondering about the return of the heroes, it is important to note that for the first time there is a significant reason to get the new version. Stealth Elf, Gill Grunt and the others returned, but the trees are completely different updates.
This means that you can not use these versions in older games, so do not get rid of older versions you own. This is an interesting way to keep five characters (and their toys) attitude.
