Twisted Metal will require online pass

It’s been confirmed that Eat Sleep Play’s Twisted Metal reboot will include an online pass.

QA Lead Justin Trease confirmed the game’s multiplayer will require its own version of the infamous pass with a simple and straight-forward “yes” when speaking to TheGamersHub.

Online passes are now included with new copies of top titles from publishers including Sony, EA and Ubisoft. Those purchasing second-hand copies more often than not have to purchase a new pass, which usually costs $10.

David Jaffe, a co-founder of the studio, last month revealed he hopes the game avoids being bogged-down by the system.

He said: “I’d actually prefer that we don’t do it, even though it’s probably good business, only because we have such a mountain to climb in terms of gaining people’s good faith, especially in Europe, and really letting people know that this is a title that’s worth getting excited about.”
