Criterion hints at old-school NFS, reveal "soon" Sunday 6-Jun-2010 9:17 PM New NFS game to hark back to series roots
Criterion is gearing up to show lift the lid on its new Need for Speed title, hinting that it will hark back to the roots of the series.
EA confirmed last year that Criterion is working on a new NFS, pledging a better game than in recent years after admitting that quality has suffered due to its failure to put "adequate resources behind the franchise".
A recent Twitter post from Criterion teases: "Today we saw the first magazine articles featuring our new game. And you will too. Soon."
It goes on to hint that the game may take the series back to its roots. One fan asks what Criterion's favourite NFS game is, to which it answers "the original 3DO game". And in a later post, Criterion responds to a player who expresses their love for the "old school" NFS games saying: "We have a feeling you might like it!"
Could it be planning a pre-E3 reveal to beat the noise? We hope so.
Holy crap. I've been out of this for so long and just a few minutes ago I decided to see what's up. This news... is f*&$ing amazing! Do you know how long I've been waiting for this? Are they bringing back showcases, real life cutscenes and cheesy epic-movie-trailer-narrator man? If so, I'm buying. Don't care if my computer runs it or not. Hell, I'm buying two. Oh please let it have pursuits. Just hope they can deliver though...
If not, I'll personally travel to their headquarters and crap all over it!
Offtopic-PS: Jussi, still need vector graphics program?

What I like the best about hot pursuit was that the cops would chase you while you were racing.... add two or three cops in a race with 8 racers kind of makes it interesting... I also think they had police helicopters in Hot Pursuit

Hot Pursuit was indeed the most fun Need For Speed game ever. Would be nice to see them bring it back. But you see the thing is, I'll do like every year. I won't hype about the game, till it's released. Because EA always seems to get people all excited, only for them to be disappointed afterwards. And to me, the only way this game will truly be successfull, is if: they use the same island and possibly expand it, add freeroam, mabe a bit of car customisation, more vehicles, and leave everything else as is. Because knowing EA, I wouldn't be surprised if they add in unnecessary features, or remove some of the best parts of the game.
I never played hot pursuit isnt that more like burnout???
Somewhat, but not quite. Burnout is really aimed at destruction, but Hot Pursuit is not. Hot Pursuit basically deals with driving top-end exotic cars while being hunted down by cops throughout the race. And the "career" mode has a series of challenges which includes races, pursuits and even delivering cars to their owners on time without crashing them.

I've seen one of the trailers and I feel ya. Analyzing what I saw, I kinda like the car selection so far. No girl thingy VW Golf in sight, so that's good. And the environment looks more wild like it should. And I also like the idea of two career modes for both cops and racers. Although that's where they should look out though. I just hope that they won't slap on a corny storyline to ruin the game...
Watching the EA conference at E3 on YouTube now. I like what the dude is saying so far (and the pursuit looked cool). Let's just pray they can deliver.
NFS Hot Pursuit will have an open world, where cops can chase the racers. Additionally you'll get their hands on high-end cars pretty early - but unfortunately there won't be any tuning and customization, because the focus lies on pursuits and escaping, rather than showing off your car.
Hot Pursuit won't have customization, therefore it will take the series 10 years back, despite the fact it has open world.
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:

Tonnzzaah (PC/PS4/SoonPS5&XSX): Welp. My Xbox 360 quit (well, the laser head quit), so I guess I need to start saving for XSX, so I can keep playing the 360 games I have, plus finally get some newer Xbox exclusives...
