Twisted Metal Multiplayer: Party System, Matchmaking

For the first time ever, Twisted Metal will have an online multiplayer option when the new installment arrives on Valentine's Day.

And fans of such a feature are definitely interested in the multiplayer details, so MP1st has gathered up new info from the Twisted Metal blog, Twitter, and David Jaffe.

Firstly, the game will support a party system that comes equipped with "party chat only," which means you'll have the option of speaking only to your allies when involved in a match. This is an open connection, which means that no buttons are necessary for chat. Secondly, if another member of your party is in another game, you can switch to party mode and communicate with that person. Thirdly, we'll get a matchmaking mode along with a server list for ranked and unranked games; players with similar skill levels will play against one another.

Oh, and for all of you wondering where Spectre was...well, he's back. It has been confirmed that the character of Kamikaze has been changed to Spectre, although this appears to be a name-change only. So don't expect Spectre to have the same vehicle and special weapon as he had in TM2. Man, I still remember the whistle of that missile...it could come from anywhere and really ruin your day.

Where did the info about Spectre come from. Last I read on Jaffe's blog they were sticking with Kamikaze. If it doesn't have a ghost missile special than I really hope it is not called Spectre.

Interesting. If the chatting works the way they say it does then it seems to essentially function as a kind of small scale form of cross-game chatting. That's definitely going to go over well with gamers.

Why would they change the name? People still sore over World War II?

Party chat within the game? Where's Jaffe and the rest of the team? These men deserve a hug!

Just pre-oredered Twisted Metal, Wi-Fi Vita, and 16GB memory card on Amazon today! This is going to be the most EPIC February in gaming history! I really have missed TM series. Playing TM:Head On with the PlayStation Portable, just wasn't the old school experience I was looking for. I hope to get that classic feeling when I sit down with a beer and this latest iteration in the TM series.

i read a while back only 3-4 ppl will have a story
(sweettooth, dollface, grimm and maybe the preacher guy) other wise thats it for stories if thats the case im going to wait if not... once i beat all stories everyone prepare to be slaughtered online :)
