As previously known, Criterion Games is once again at the helm of another Need for Speed title, Most Wanted. This time, however, gone are any traces of storyline the original from 2005 had and it’s all about you, your car and becoming the most wanted between your competitors, cops and friends.
Back is the franchise’s renown Autolog feature, now keeping track of anything and everything you can do in the game, from the fastest runs, to the most points collected during a pursuit to the longest jump, turning everything into a competition. All races in Most Wanted will take place in an open-world environment, whereas in the developer’s previous NFS game, Hot Pursuit, you could only experience the beauty of the landscape at your own pace while free-riding. No standard rules apply to these races, meaning you get from point A to B in whatever way possible and try to rack up as high a score along the way as possible in order to become, as the title suggests, the Most Wanted.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted ships this October 30th in the US (November 1st in EU) on multiple platforms, including PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PS Vita, iOS and Android alongside a limited edition featuring “double speed points, custom liveries, pre-customized rollouts and two vehicles: the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale and Porsche 911 Carrera S.”
