At their press conference on Monday afternoon, EA and Criterion Games announced that they are reimagining Need for Speed Most Wanted – the best selling game of the NFS series.
This new version of the game will feature an open world environment that mixes in some Burnout qualities such as takedowns, while maintaining the game’s signature feel. Arriving on October 30, the game will also get a special limited edition pack that includes double speed points, customer liveries, the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale and Porsche 911 Carrera S.
“Criterion is shaking up the franchise with Need for Speed Most Wanted,” said Matt Webster, Executive Producer at Criterion Games. “This is Most Wanted for a new generation of players. We’ve brought everything we know about racing, chasing and exploration and smashed them together in a highly connected open world automotive experience. Whether driving solo or racing with friends in our amazing new multiplayer experience, Autolog fires up competition out of everything as players compete to be most wanted amongst their friends.”
Need for SpeedMost Wanted will also feature Autolog 2 for social integration that will also make recommendations to players become better racers.
