Need for Speed Most Wanted

Need for Speed Most Wanted is now out, and today we’re celebrating 1 million Autolog users with the release of the PlayStation 3 demo. We’re bringing PlayStation.Blog the inside track on what new players should look for, and how to dominate the Most Wanted demo.

Making a demo for a large-scale open world game is a major challenge. We wanted to put together a snapshot of Most Wanted’s blend of exploration, connected competition and explosive, over-the-top police chase action to give you a taste of what to expect from the main game.

The action takes place in a locked down version of the city – you get to play in Fairhaven’s Downtown and Four Bridges districts.

Next week sees the keenly anticipated release of Need for Speed Most Wanted, the latest release from Criterion Games – the legendary UK racing specialist behind the Burnout series and Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, the phenomenal 2010 entry in EA’s long-running street racing franchise.

That the PlayStation 3 version is very, very good should come as no surprise, but somewhat more unexpected is the amount of care the studio has lavished on replicating the experience on PlayStation Vita. Producer Matt Webster and his team have squeezed almost the entire experience onto the handheld, and even found room for a little bit of extra content exclusive to the system.
