Sega of America has announced that Sega GT Online is in development for the Xbox. Naturally, the game will feature support for Xbox Live, enabling up to six players to race against each other at once online. Players will be able to customize and tune every aspect of their car before taking it online to compete against other drivers around the country. The game features 160 cars from three different eras, as well as prototypes from well-known automobile manufacturers--all of which can be traded or bet on before the start of a race.
"Sega GT Online takes racing for pink slips to a whole new level," said Mike Fischer, vice president of marketing, Sega of America. "If you think you've got what it takes to be the best, you can put your hard-earned car on the line and square off with thousands of gamers online via Xbox Live. Hey, if you lose big you can always talk trash--or grovel and beg for your car back."
Sega GT Online is scheduled for release this fall.
