Battlefield Bye Bye Bye: EA Closing Four F2P Games

We received a report from the eerie ghost world of EA's free-to-play MMO drive 'em up Need for Speed World only last week. Its streets lay empty, making the twilight world a spooky haunted house of a city. And then... a car appeared. Oh, how much I'd like to have told young Jack "But Jack, NFSW closed down on this very day three years ago"…

2 Slow 2 Curious: What It’s Like To Visit The Ghostly, Decrepit Streets Of Need For Speed World

At first we thought the city in Quicklime’s 2010 MMO Need For Speed World [official site] didn’t have a name. The world map definitely didn’t show one. There were no opening cutscenes to introduce us nicely, no “welcome to the mean streets of x.” After a while, though, a name kept coming up again and again on overhead signs beside exits to dreary suburbs, and…

Need For Speed World Is Exhausting

Need For Speed World recently celebrate a year of whizzing cars wot go fast, and the Gamescom trailer (below) shows off the enfreshened customisation options and the "birthday" Porsche, which I assume everyone…

Need For Speed World Expands, A Bit

Free-to-play (or as EA would have it Play4Free) racing game Need For Speed World has expanded like a trucker who ate too much at the drive-in. Actually they'd probably not like that analogy. Let's say it has expanded slightly, like the broad shoulders of a semi-professional wrestler who has just moved onto a really high-protein diet. Either way, it has added a new game mode:…

Free World: Need For Speed World Free-er

When John described Need For Speed World as a free MMO, it was a little over-generous. It was an MMO with a free trial, with a level 10 cap you needed to pay for a twenty dollar price-kit to progress past. However, that's been changed, with EA moving it to a more true-Free-to-play model. Basically, you can play the whole game for free, with the…

Need For Speed World review

EA's free-to-play street racing MMO, Need For Speed: World, is available to download now. NFSW it's known as. But don't misread that - there's nothing below that's not safe for work. The free version lets you play to level 10, while paying for a Starter kit gives you 50 levels and a lot more vehicles. Is it worth it? I've driven my way past level…
