A new gymkhana mode puts players in obstacle courses, challenging them to perform various tricks to earn points. Featured in the game are various party modes, involving events such as smashing wooden targets ("Invasion"), spreading a zombie infection ("Outbreak"), and a capture the flag-like game mode ("Transporter"). Other new features include a Hardcore mode which limits players to the cockpit view (known as "head cam") with no driver assists, the appearance of rain and snow, and the ability to upload replay clips directly to YouTube.
