General Information

Quick Game Summary

Publisher: Electronic Arts
Developer: Criterion Games
Platforms: PC, XBOX 360, PS3, VITA, iPhone, Android
Release Date: Oct 30, 2012
Need For Speed: Most Wanted is the 19th installment in the Need For Speed series, developed by British games developer Criterion Games and published by Electronic Arts. This game is not to be confused with the original Need For Speed: Most Wanted, which was released in 2005, even though both games share the same name. Most Wanted 2012 was officially announced during EA's press conference at E3 2012, and it was revealed by EA that this isn't a remake of the original game, but a modern sequel.

Like in the original Most Wanted, players will have an open-world setting, this time a city called Fairhaven. There, the players can take part in races, cop chases, stunts, or simply roam around. The Blacklist is also back but this time there are only 10 blacklist members, as opposed to the 15 in the original Most Wanted. The driving model of the game has been described as "deep, physical and fun", not as arcade-styled as the Burnout series and Hot Pursuit, but far from a simulator. Most Wanted has a range of real-world vehicles, a mix of muscle cars, street racers and exotics, described as "the wildest selection of cars yet". The cars can be altered with performance upgrades, such as paint colours, wheels, suspensions, engine, nitrous, and bodywork. For the first time in Need for Speed history, all of the cars will be available from the start, hidden in different locations throughout Fairhaven; the player will have to discover them in order to unlock them. It is possible to switch a car at anytime, including during pursuits. If the player finds a new car, he/she just needs to park next to it to automatically switch from the current car to the new one.
