US carrier Verizon Wireless and mobile game publisher Gameloft have launched the first real-time multiplayer mobile game on Verizon Wireless’ V CAST consumer multimedia service…Asphalt Urban GT: Multiplayer allows players to simultaneously compete in Gameloft’s latest 3D driving game.
Bill Stone, vice president of marketing for Verizon Wireless, said “With Gameloft’s Asphalt Urban GT: Multiplayer, V CAST customers can compete in real-time, which more closely resembles the console gaming experience. Verizon Wireless’ broadband network enables this next step forward in mobile gaming, allowing customers to participate in head-to-head competition, rather than taking turns.”
The game is being promoted with a competition starting on Sept 10 where gamers can compete for chances to win music CDs, concert tickets, and a grand prize including an Oakland Raiders luxury suite party for up to 16 guests.
