Need for Speed World (previously known as Need for Speed: World Online) is the fifteenth installment in the video game Need for Speed franchise published by Electronic Arts. This iteration has been co-developed by EA Black Box (Quicklime Games now renamed) and EA Singapore. It is the first freemium MMORG in the Need for Speed series (though Motor City Online was originally conceived as a Need for Speed game) and is available exclusively for Windows-based PC. World was released worldwide on July 27, 2010. However, people who ordered the Need for Speed: World Starter Pack had an early “head-start” in the game, which started on July 20, 2010.
World takes on the style of play of Most Wanted and Carbon, 2006, 2005, focuses on illegal street racing, tuning and police chases, and adds classic MMO elements to the mix such as special abilities. World also features the cities of Rockport and Palmont, the cities of Most Wanted and Carbon, in its map design, with redesigned graphics and new locations on the map to make the trip between the two cities easier. The game now has more than 100 licensed cars consisting tuners, muscle cars, exotic and race cars. In Rockport, there are signs on the ring road in downtown Rockport that said “Tri-Cities” along with the roads leading to a toll bridge on the other side. However, the road tolls beyond crashes to all drivers. Need for speed fans assume that there are plans to add Tri-City of Shadows in the game.
