Project Gotham Dev's Blur Arrives in November

By Chris Faylor, Aug 06, 2009 9:27am PDT Blur, the latest racing game out of Project Gotham Racing and Metropolis Street Racer creator Bizarre Creations, is set to hit retailers at some point in November.

Studio owner Activision confirmed the timeframe in a conference call, but did not provide a date. However, the publisher recently highlighted the pre-order incentives of several North American retailers, all of which currently list the game for a November 3 release.

Coming to PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, the racer packs a variety of customization options, allowing events to range from realistic races to Mario Kart-esque bouts with power-ups, such as missiles and bombs, that can be avoided with properly timed press of the shield button.
