During EA’s 2012 E3 Press Conference, Need For Speed: Most Wanted (2012) was announced to press with British games developer Criterion Games developing the game. If you’re not familiar with the British developer, they are the driving force that developed Burnout: Paradise. Additionally, a single player video was showcased demonstrating what seemed to be the interface the player would interact when racing around the open world of Most Wanted as posted below.
The heads-up display seemed to be reminiscent of Need For Speed: Underground while changing it enough that it wasn’t exactly the same. In addition, the graphics and texturing of the game seems to be quite different from the previous Most Wanted as well as some other games from the Need For Speed franchise. However, it seems to have that Burnout: Paradise atmosphere while still making it feel like Need For Speed game. Slated for a October 30th release, fans will have until then to figure out if the game is worth its weight in gold.
