Car chases and multiplayer online races
Need For Speed World is the new online version of the extremely popular racing game franchise.
It's a massively multiplayer open world game, with RPG-like leveling up.
In its beta phase, Need For Speed World has some bugs to iron out, and there's a limit of level ten in terms of player experience. In the final release, players who wish to move further up the rankings will have to pay. There's still lots to do and many hours of racing ahead of anyone starting at lowly level one though!
Choose a car from a small range of not very exciting cars to start. Then roam the huge Need For Speed World looking for races, which can be multi or single player, and get into chases with the cops. Evading the police and ranking in races gives you experience points and money, which in turn unlock better cars that you can buy in the Need For Speed World showroom.
Your cars can be modified with stickers, paint and decals, and power-ups can be chosen and purchased with in game money. Need For Speed World seems pretty stable, even with loads of players online.
When you enter the open world you don't crash into other players, only the environment and other traffic. Online players can only push you around if you enter a race.
The cars in Need For Speed World have the forgiving, arcade style handling that makes the franchise such fun to play.
