TalkXBOX Q&A with Larry LaPierre

Postby Skyline_man » 31 Jan 2006, 17:20

TalkXBOX posted some Q&A with Larry Lapierre the senior producer of NFSMW about where the series is heading from here and about the developer's thoughts on the title and much more...

Some interesting quotes:

Based on feedback garnered since the game’s release, and the thoughts of team members, what are some of the major enhancements and features we should look for in the next Need for Speed game?

LP - You can count on a couple things. There will be some brand new cool ways to play and anything you thought was good or fun will be better.


One of the most often complained about features in EA published and developed games is the EA Trax system. What are your thoughts on it? Does having licensed tracks save development time, or limit musical creativity?

LP - Music is one of the most personal passionate subjects for people next to religion. You can never please everyone. This year we went with a specific purpose of wanting to support the style and tone of the game and hence why the soundtrack was a little harder and edgy. This year we did a combination of licensed tracks and original composed score. Personally I think the scored music has the most impact. It maps to the emotions of the action more effectively and adds value to the experience better than licensed music usually does.


Will there be downloadable content for Most Wanted? If so, when should we expect that to come out?

LP – We are looking into the possibility of DLC for a future release.

Thanks to 2furio for the heads up.

The download stuff sounds nice, but I count on it that it will only be XBOX360 material...

got the weird feeling it won't come to the PC.

Same here. In fact, rather than making "Downloadable Content", jsut allow users to crack the game.. :P

yeah, that would tick me off to see the XBOX360 get the content and not the PC. i doubt EA will put up downloadable content. they have lied many times. just like they said a ton of cars would be in MW and then we find out there's only 32..i think it would be hard to trust EA.

still the thought of it is nice though :D
