NFS Most Wanted: First Previews


MW2Criterion Games showed Need for Speed Most Wanted to the press and so the first previews of the game are showing up.

The first impression seems to be quite positive, Criterion Games goes with a lot of confidence at work and soon clarifies that Most Wanted doesn't have much in common with the original Most Wanted ("We don’t make sequels to other people’s games") and the game seems to be a mixture of Hot Pursuit and Burnout with an improved Autolog.

For more details check out the following previews:

NFS Most Wanted as Cross Buy title?

Sony recently announced "Cross Buy", which basically means when you buy a Playstation 3 game, you'll get the PS Vita version for free. So far Sony listed PlayStation All-Stars, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, and Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault as Cross Buy games.

Since Need for Speed Most Wanted will be available for both platforms, IGN reached out to EA what they think about the Cross Buy program: “We’re taking it under consideration, but we have no specific plans to announce at this time.”, said an EA spokesperson.

The whole NFS series is terrible now. It all went down hill after carbon, Underground 1/2 were good, most wanted was good then carbon was below par with all of them then straight down after that. I've been buying them all the time hoping they will find their roots but they don't and now giving it to Criterion has made it into burnout. I loved burnout but when i want burnout I will play Burnout and when i want street racing with all the mods i will play NFS, or at least i use to be able to. So just like everything else EA has made, this is going to be s***e too unfortunately :(
 


400+ KM/H :D



Not really. Carbon sucked indeed, but not all games were terrible. Undercover was great: story, gameplay, tuning, ect. Hot Pursuit was very fun to play. The run had good graphics, fun gameplay but was very short. I wouldn't call them much of a failures.

What in hell are you talking about? Undercover was one of the worse NFS game in the series because of the Prostreet handling.

A Gothenburg working on Next-Gen Need for Speed?

According to Videogamer EA Gothenburg could be working on a new Next-Gen Need for Speed title. EA Gothenburg was formed in March 2012 to develop a "a new generation of games on the Frostbite 2 engine".

A producer at EA Gothenburg mentioned in his LinkedIn profile that he's working on a Need for Speed title and the fact that Criterion VP Alex Ward is known to be working with EA Gothenburg too, points to the development of a new Need for Speed title.

So far EA has not yet announced which games will be in development by this studio, so we will see - maybe next year's Need for Speed is in develepment at EA Gothenburg rather than EA Black Box?

(Thanks to JohnnyBNL for the info.)

Marussia B2 in Need for Speed Most Wanted

The partnership between EA and the Russian sportscar manufacturer Marussia shows its first results, as the following new screenshot of the Marussia B2 in the upcoming Need for Speed Most Wanted shows:

Looks promising!
 


I completed it a month ago, and I don't think handling is bad at all! I actually preferred it over Hot Pursuit.
