THQ is really laying it on thick when it comes to MotoGP Ultimate Racing Technology 3 multiplayer. Yep, there's a single-player game in there naturally but the publisher is putting heavy emphasis on what it calls "embedded gameplay", a feature that it says "blurs the line between offline and online action, making it quicker and easier than ever for speed demons to challenge each other."
In a nutshell, what's meant by "embedded gameplay" is the ability to switch from an offline race to an online multiplayer race seamlessly at the hit of a button - on the Xbox version of the sequel at least - which is actually a pretty cool feature so we can forgive THQ for pressing it home.
Explaining the feature in more detail, the publisher states: "When a player sets-up a race against the AI, the game will automatically check for a similar multiplayer race about to start. If such a race is detected - and the competing drivers are of a similar skill - the player is given the option to jump into the multiplayer race with just one click of a button."
Cool, eh? MotoGP URT 3 burns in this summer, but in the meantime you can check out a heap of new screenshots that we've uploaded to this page.
