[quote=", post:, topic:"]

Need for Speed: World Online is the sequel to Need For Speed: Undercover and one of the next installments in the long-running racing video game franchise Need for Speed published by Electronic Arts. This iteration is being co-developed by EA Black Box and EA Singapore. World Online is a free-to-play MMORG (massively multiplayer online racing game), the first MMORG in the Need for Speed series after EA’s Motor City Online. EA marketing manager Keith Munro states that “this Play 4 Free action racing game will give Need for Speed fans the most licensed cars, parts and game modes ever in Need for Speed’s history”. There is now an official teaser, which confirms the presence of the Pagani Zonda, Lamborghini, Porsche, and Lexus cars, along with the return of the police. The promo image is a Nissan 350Z racing in the Chinatown of Palmont (the city of Need for Speed: Carbon) in mid-day.

In an interview with World Online producer, John Doyle, he mentioned that the European and North American versions of the game will have differences from the Asian one. It was also confirmed that the game will feature the cities of Palmont and Rockport which were featured in Need for Speed: Carbon and Need for Speed: Most Wanted respectively. The cops were confirmed to return as well, together with a co-op and team based cop play.

Also the name of the game has been changed from "World Online" to "World" only. IMO 1st one was cooler but this one is fine aswell.

NFS World servers will be up and running again from Monday, June 28... Also in this release there are 11 new cars, including the Audi R8 and Nissan 370Z, bringing the total garage to 25. they've also added performance customization packs for every car and increased the number of progression levels to 50... Sounds good
