Well, it looks like Apple's Game Center is helping developers bring some nice features to the App Store. Firemint just announced tonight that they will be introducing a 4-way online multiplayer update to their popular Real Racing game using Apple's Game Center.

Real Racing was one of the highly anticipated racers for the App Store and was met with great reviews. But one of the most requested features was some sort of online multiplayer. While Firemint had provided users with local Wi-fi multiplayer, unless you had direct access to a lot of iPhone toting friends, you were stuck playing against the AI. Well, pretty soon, you'll be able to play against smack-talking anonymous strangers.

Real Racing also happens to be on sale at $2.99 at this time.

    Absolutely wonderful news, I stopped playing this game a long time ago because it was sorely missing something, that something being true online multiplayer. Once this is added in I expect this game to take the title of best racer again.

    This will be a nice addition... What would be an even nicer addition is actual different cars added. I've never known a such a dry racer, with stale environs and only 6 cars. That being said, this has always been a top-notch experience, with nice a sense of speed. We'll see if the on-line code is up-to-snuff.

    hope some devs will bring voice chat to their games!

    NICE...Of course I'm going to whip all of you. I haven't lost a race in Real Racing for over 4 months.

    I'd love to read an interview with the developers working with Game Center for the on-line part and what challenges they encountered.

    Great game! Unfortunately, i only have an iphone 3g and since it doesn't support Game Center, i won't be able to play online.
