EA has officially kicked off the closed beta for experimental online MMO racer Need for Speed World and is welcoming applications from potential new members.
Set across 150 miles of open world roads, the game aims to create the largest persistent online race world ever seen and represents the series’ most radical departure from its roots since EA announced its intention to re-jig the IP in January last year.
“Need for Speed World is the world’s first MMO racer – a completely new entertainment experience for speed junkies all over the world,” the game’s senior producer John Doyle stated.
“We have expanded Need for Speed’s classic adrenaline fuelled racing with an all-new power up system and deep RPG style progression to create a truly massive, socially-connected white-knuckle Need for Speed experience.”
