Tournament modes now available for PGR4

PGR4Project Gotham Racing 4 is a powerful racing game that needs some nitros. While it didn’t receive the same critical acclaim of PGR3 and with the more competitive racing market populated by games like Forza 2 and the upcoming GT 5 Prologue, PGR4 was in need of something to keep the fans coming back.

Bizzarre Creations knew exactly what that was and, as of today, four new tournament modes have been released via XBL.

The four modes are Daily Tournaments, Super Saturday, Simulation Sundays, and the Global Cup. Each offfers their own set of qualifying requirements, and racing atmospheres. Here is the entry from Bizzare’s website:

"How to Qualify:

* The Tournament Leaderboards include a timer counting down how much time is left to qualify.
* To qualify for a Tournament, race as fast as you can on a Solo Hot Lap to set the best lap time.
* Once you finish racing, you can check the Tournament Leaderboards to see if you’ve qualified.
* Those who qualified will have a spot reserved for them.
* No shows for the Tournament Elimination rounds will be disqualified.

Racing in Daily Tournaments

* Available Monday through Friday.
* Each Daily Tournament begins and ends in a single day.
* A total of 640 players (five groups of 128) can qualify for each Daily Tournament.
* Only the Top Two finishers advance in each elimination round.

Racing in Super Saturdays

* Available on Saturdays only.
* Each Super Saturday Tournament begins and ends on a single Saturday.
* A total of 2,560 players (five groups of 512) can qualify for each Super Saturday Tournament.
* Only the Top Two finishers advance in each elimination round.

Racing in Simulation Sundays

* Available on Sundays only.
* Each Simulation Sunday Tournament begins and ends on a single Sunday.
* Players are required to use In-Car-View/Manual Gear only.
* A total of 64 players can qualify for each Simulation Sunday Tournament.
* Only the Top Four finishers advance in each elimination round.

Racing in the Global Cup

* Available twice a month.

* A total of 512 players can qualify for each Global Cup Tournament:
o The Top 20 finishers for each Nation
o The Top 32 finishers from the "Rest of World"

Winning the Global Cup nets your gamertag on the PGRNation’s homepage, while earning top spot in the Tournament will place your gamertag at the top of the leader boards.
