No, we’ve not gone back in time, EA really are making another Need for Speed game with the Most Wanted subtitle. We reported on rumours just over a week ago saying almost exactly this, but didn’t know much about the game.
Oh, and we were off with the release date, by a day or two: Most Wanted will instead be releasing on October 30th (though that could well be November in the UK).
It looks good, however, and it appears to be Burnout in all but name – it features a large, free roaming map, road rules and looks like it plays quite like Burnout, too. The gameplay shown looked great, both aesthetically and functionally – there appears to be some handy floating text, similar to Split Second in a way showing you where to go and some stats about your car.
Road Rules appear to be back, too, as seen in the trailer, so it looks similar to the brilliant Burnout Paradise in a few ways.
Most Wanted also brings the ‘second generation of autolog’, though EA didn’t go into detail about what this second generation would actually involve.
Oh, and it’s coming out on Vita too.
