The game will now start in offline mode, and will try and connect to the online servers as soon as the Play Online button is selected.

The third track for the game has been whiteboxed and laid out to give a feel for how it will look. You can see the early signs of the routes players will take and the type of assets which will later be implemented. For now it does not too challenging but low hanging traffic lights, trees, lampposts and other additions will see this track become an interesting race. Moreover, it will be the first one set at night.
