Need For Speed Most Wanted Hits the Road

Need For Speed Most Wanted is now available at retail stores and on Origin.com! This latest installment of the classic racing franchise brings all new trouble from running from the cops to eliminating your competition.

Need For Speed Most Wanted brings leaderboards to a new level with Autolog 2.0 that displays your record speeds, times, pursuits and jump distances directly in your game world. You can cruise past any speed camera, Jack Spot or jump to view its unique leaderboard, and then take a run up, hit the gas and see if you can top it. Hit the biggest air off any billboard jump, and your face will even display on the billboard in your friends’ games!

This edition also goes cross-platform. The all-new CloudCompete technology lets you extend your experience beyond your console or PC with a cloud-based scoring system that tracks Speed Points and game accomplishments no matter where you play through http://www.needforspeed.com/en_AU/. Whether you play on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android or PlayStation Vita it will all count toward your progress in the game.

Once you pick up a copy you’ll immediately have access to all the cars in the game – no need to worry about unlocking new content. All you have to do is find the cars and you’re good to go. Drive up, hop in and the cars and new set of races are all yours.

Hit the road and let us know what you think, and congrats to our Criterion Games team on a great game!
