Need For Speed Most Wanted Is Back

Police chases. Vehicular destruction. Spine-bending speeds. At today’s E3 press conference, Criterion confirmed that it’s all on its way back in the new Need for Speed Most Wanted.

Designed for a new, more connected generation of racing fans, Need for Speed Most Wanted integrates with the newest version of Autolog to build competition into every aspect of the game. And with an open world to play in, the path to the finish line is anything you make it—from a straight run through the streets to a red-line climb over obstacles and police cars. Check out a preview of the action below:

For those who want an even richer experience, Need for Speed will be releasing a special limited edition pack featuring double speed points, custom liveries, pre-customized rollouts, and two gorgeous vehicles: the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale and the Porsche 911 Carrera S.

Need for Speed Most Wanted will be available in North America on October 30, 2012. The European release is scheduled for November 1, 2012. You can pre-order Need for Speed Most Wanted on Origin today.

    Will this Game be a two player game instead of a single player game. I really miss being able to play on split screen with my firends.

    Most Wanted Is back? First reaction: AWESOME! Finally someone has heard our prayers and is ready to give us something we all want! Second reaction: Most Wanted is back? Nope... Saw it on E3. It's more like someone killed it with a shovel. Seriously, there is nothing in this that I enjoyed so much in the original Most Wanted. First off: No music during chases and races. Second: No visual tuning Third: No LAN support. Criterion has 3 months to fix these problems

    I LOVED NFS MOST WANTED! WHO DIDN'T? YOU HAD: THE GREAT STORY LINE (RAZOR, BLACKLIST, GREAT CHARACTERS, THE LENGTH OF THE GAME, BECAUSE OF THE BOUNTY, & MILESTONES YOU HAD TO ACHIEVE. IT ALL MESHED. BUT THE MOST BRILLIANT ASPECT OF THE GAME TO ME, WAS THE GREAT STORY LINE & THE CUSTOMIZATION OF YOUR CAR. IT WAS GREAT BEING "IN" THE STORY, & EARNING ALL THE PARTS & VISUALS & THEN SHOWING IT OFF, TO EVENTUALLY DEFEAT RAZOR THEN ESCAPE CROSS JUMPING THE BRIDGE AT THE END -->

    I CAN JUST HOPE THAT MAYBE THIS MOST WANTED, CONTINUES THE STORYLINE. LIKE WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE BIG BRIDGE JUMP? IF YOU REMEMBER. AFTER YOU ESCAPE CROSS, HE PUTS OUT A NATIONAL WARRANT FOR YOU & MARKS YOU AS MOST WANTED. I'VE ALWAYS WAITED FOR NFS TO COME OUT WITH A CONTINUANCE TO IT. BUT IT NEVER DID! I BOUGHT CARBON, SHIFT, UNDERGROUND, HOT PURSUIT, THE RUN. THESE GAMES TO ME WERE FAILURES IN MY OPINION. I DIDN'T ENJOY THEM. & I READ REVIEWS FROM OTHERS & I HEARD A LOT OF THE SAME.-->

    WHAT I HOPE & WHAT I WANT TO KNOW IS? IS MOST WANTED 2, GOING TO HAVE A STORY TO IT, LIKE PART 1? NOT JUST AN INTRO, & THEN A PICK & PLAY. BUT A STORY THAT WILL CARRY ME THROUGH THE GAME. WHERE MAYBE I BUY MY CAR OR CARS, THEN CAN I GRADUALLY FIX EM UP THE WAY I WANT? WILL THERE BE SEPARATE BOUNTY'S & MILESTONES THAT MUST BE ACHIEVED TO EARN MONEY OR SP TO PURCHASE BETTER EQUIPMENT & PARTS FOR THE VEHICLES, SO THAT I CAN COMPETE AT ALL TIMES. WILL THIS REALLY BE NEED FOR SPEED MOST WANTED 2 ????
