Any info on the next build? It's been a while fellas.

I can't give you an ETA yet, as we need to seriously tweak those bits. I would wager it won't take more than 2-3 weeks, but I really can't say for sure. Early this week I would've said that the online functionality will definitely not happen for the next build, but, well, here we are :)

The only thing I have to say is that "Deathmatch" sounds more like an FPS game rather than a driving game. I hope in later builds it will be changed to "Last Man Driving" or "Last Team Driving"

A taste of things to come:

Today we tested real deal online multiplayer with two new game modes, Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch. They need tweaking, sure, but they're here, and they work!
In addition, we now have road side spectator cameras so you can watch how the rest of the race proceeds.
All this makes the next build worth the wait, no? :)
Good times, good times \o/


OMG cant wait.:)

But isn't "last man standing" just a regular derby? So "DM" and "Team DM" are probably other modes? possibly where you get respawned after being wrecked? Not sure how I feel about that. But of course it would hbring the advantage of not having to wait 10 minutes doing nothing if you get wrecked at the beginning.

EDIT: Oh, wait.. I forgot to say one thing: WHAAAAT!?!?!? Real online Multiplayer with different modes!?!?!?!? Maybe even in 2-3 weeks!?!?!? YEEEHAAW! :D

When I read:

And saw just Deathmatch, it got me to wondering that Team Deathmatch is not last man\team standing derbys.

Jori, could you please clarify what is Deathmatch mode and will there be a true last man standing team derby matches online also? I'm OK if there re-spawning in the derbys like we saw in DIRT Showdown, but I'm not OK if there no option to do true last man standing team derbys also. True last man standing team derbys is needed for Cops and Robbers derbys done on the tracks.

Agreed.
"Deathmatch" is boring & hackneyed.  ::)
This game mode needs a name more in the style of "The Cannonball Baker Sea-To-Shining-Sea Memorial Trophy Dash".  ;D

Deathmatch\ Team Deathmatch not boring in Gas Guzzlers Extreme. Zeb I'm hosting GGE tonight.

I almost forgot, if there team Deathmatch mode, that mean we one step away from having a Capture the Flag mode in NCG??

Team racing/derby is great.Team derby with re-spawns i.e dirt showdown is not for me though,i find it boring.Hopefully 'team deathmatch' means the former or there is atleast a option for both gamemodes (no re-spawning) on track and derby arena

A little, but was intended to be my inner thoughts as well. 2-3 weeks is a long time (in my mind at least).

I would say thats good news! If it stays at that estimate from a week ago, then those are 1-2 weeks now. After waiting for nearly 2 months I am really excited to get a new build! :)

In the next build, actually, and if all goes well, it'll be released late this week or early next week :)
