Electronic Arts and Firemonkeys are about to make a lot of racing fans either really happy or really sad with its next update.
In addition to the two new cars, the Lamborghini Veneno and McLaren P1, the game is finally getting the much sought after real-time multiplayer in addition to the standard asynchronous time-shifted events.
The catch? Real-Time Multiplayer uses GameCenter and, thus, is available only to iOS players. And, thus, the great divide widens as if millions of Android users cried out in anger and were suddenly ignored. You may as well get your popcorn ready, because the “statistically, more people use Android” outrageous butthurt festival is about to begin over on their Google Play page.
The best part is the difference between the two trailers. Check out the 18-second mark on both videos to see the main difference.
Google Play Trailer:
There’s a pretty big difference between “Real-Time Multiplayer” and “New Events”, but that’s a cute way of trying to hide it, guys. Ignorance is bliss, I suppose, but it’s just a matter of time until the door comes off the hinges.
No word on when, if ever, it is expected for Android users. Not to rub salt in your wounds or anything, guys, but if you like video games you’re totally on the wrong platform, anyway.Tweet
