Need for Speed World is a free-to-play game. After downloading and installing the game, you’ll be able to play the game for as long as you want without having to spend any money. However, you will only be able to progress to a certain driver level. Once that level has been reached, players will still be able to play for as long as they want, but will not be able to gain additional Rep to progress. In order to continue progressing in the game, it will be necessary to purchase the Need for Speed World Starter Pack.
NFSW will be released as a free game client which will let players advance their driver up to level 10 before being asked to purchase a "starter pack." The game can continue to be played without it, but players won't be able to level up to earn new vehicles and power-ups.
EA is accepting pre-orders for a $19.99 starter pack, which allows for progression up to level 50 and includes an exclusive car, beta access, the ability to play NFSW a week before release and a selection of power-ups.
Well, they set the level cap for starter pack to level 50. It really depends how fast the levelling is. I'm sure people who hit the cap are willing to pay more to go higher...
They planned on supporting this games for years to come, so if level 50 can be reached in few monts, we can except a lot of level cap unlocking packs to come along.
PS. This system is nicer than monthly fees, because you only have to pay, when you reach the cap. So if you play a little per month, you only pay little per month. And if you grind like mad, you pay like mad.

Other than NFS High Stakes and Porsche Unleashed, and possibly NFS Shift, the number of players involved with online racing quickly diminished after about a year. NFS Shift has also diminished, but not by a factor of 5x to 10x as has happened with NFS games since Hot Pursuit 2.
I'm not sure about the long term future of NFS World. I'm hoping that eventually they come out with a boxed retail version that I can play years from now, long after the online service is shutdown.
i guess i won't be getting World for a LONG time then if not never if this is so. I usually don't have the moneys for these extra pack thingies n lv cap? eh, no thanks... There's enough of those in games i play; don't need it in a NFS game AS WELL..
i think i'll stick to my still-fun Most Wanted... i liked World but money issues as usual...
I would have respect EA if they would just charge for the content based on what you want, cars, customizations, leveling up, ect...But those "harry potter" power ups that no asked for is a deal breaker for me...
Why am I not surprised? Seriously, I knew that EA and completely free wouldn't fit in the same sentence. So the greedy bastards are after your money again. Screw this you can't go further unless you pay. Game developers should cut this bullcrap and just f**king set a fixed price for a finished product.
Needless to say that I won't be getting World Online. There's better stuff on the way, so I'll just wait for TDU2 and see what Criterion makes of Hot Pursuit.
CmdrTomalak (PC/PS3/PS4): Yep. Dead. Dead. Dead... Somebody should put it out of its misery. It all started waaaaaay back when Most Wanted came out and we all met on the EA forums and decided to branch out on our own. Sad way to go...

Tonnzzaah (PC/360/PS4): And unfortunately, the way Need For Speed games were for quite long time didn't help this place at all, for starters, I dropped off from NFS games completely. I did get both Shifts, Hot Pursuit (2010) and later Rivals, but they weren't enough...

Chandrian: I don't know how many of you know, but for a while, NFS World has worked very well on a public online server (probably a month or more since it became more stable), containing over 150k registered players.

Chandrian: The sync is now allowing races with more than 2 players, and pretty much all original NFSW features are working. The best part is that everything is available for in-game cash on this server.

Chandrian: You have to start with a new driver profile, but the progression isn't that hard. If you wanna play NFSW online again, then I advise downloading the launcher of this online server and also joining this Discord server:
