Need For Speed Most Wanted has been officially announced with a cinematic trailer. Developed by Criterion of Burnout fame, Most Wanted will try to recapture the popularity that peaked for the Need For Speed franchise with their previous game of the same title. The description of the video can be found below.
To be Most Wanted, you’ll need to outrun the cops, outdrive your friends, and outsmart your rivals. With a relentless police force gunning to take you down, you’ll need to make split second decisions. Use the open world to your advantage to find hiding spots, hit jumps and earn new vehicles to keep you one step ahead.
In true Criterion Games fashion, your friends are at the heart of your experience. In an open world with no menus or lobbies, you’ll be able to instantly challenge your friends and prove your driving skill in a variety of seamless multiplayer events. Your rivals will do everything they can to stop you from getting to the top. In this world, there can only be one Most Wanted.
Coming in 2012 on X360, PS3, PC, PS Vita and iOS.
