I can give it some hopes then...!


Yeah I tohught about that.

Is it true that Undergroud developing team works apart from Hot Pursuit team / franchise / whatever is it called?

Well, before UG2 was announced, EA said they were working on NFS and that it will be called Most Wanted. So, this means by the time the game will be finished, it would have been 2 years in development, enough to add a lot of exciting new features. It's actually a good thing, it was postponed, because they have time ti improve the game.

If it is true (and I hope it is), there are two NFS:U2 features I'd like retained: car customization and free-roaming cities.

I spend more time customizing my cars and tweaking my setups than I do racing in NFS:U2. I hope they allow modification of the import and muscle cars in this new game. Imagine, a red Boss 302 with drag slicks and a cowl hood! 8)

And I don't think I'd get the game without a Free Roam mode included in the deal. When I'm not tuning, I'm blasting around the city at random, either pancaking traffic with my H2 or smoking challengers with my TT!

In the article, which could be a fake, it is said that:
A) There will be 4 different locations ----> That makes me think there won't be free roaming, but classic nfs circuits.
B) There will be Outrun mode ---> Outrun races need the Free roaming feature to make sense :roll:

Anyway, I dont want Free roaming and import ricers in the new game
I want back the classic alternative roads.... do you remember HP2??
A good number of alternative roads would improve the pursuit experience.

They might be thinking about making the next game a bit bigger than their previous titles (kinda like what R* did with GTA). They're putting in 70 more cars than in NFSU2, and they might also be thinking about doing the same with the surroundings. So this might mean we get 4 different locations, with free roaming on all of them. So different locations and Outrun isn't impossible.

I want the free roaming, it's great :) And even tho you don't like import cars, a lot of people do. It's a bit early to go into how the gameplay will be build up, but if you hate the imports, I don't think there should be any reason for you to drive them in order to complete the game. Free roaming on classic roads isn't actually impossible either, you know. Just cruising around would be wonderful...

And I hope we can take alternate routes in Sprint races instead of having following those annoying red arrows. :)

Well if this is true EA would really win back a lot of fans it lost on NFSU & NFSU 2 (i'm not one of them, i liked these games and i'am not affraid to say it :wink: )
I also remember reading a short time after NFSU that EA said that there next game would be like NFSU (which we saw in NFSU 2) , and the one after that would be a back to the roots game... which means there is some truth in the artical, maybe not everything but some!!!!

but then again SPARCO only wants a SEAT LEON.... :roll:

I think it would be a good choice to mix all kinds of cars on the tracks...

you might think that those "Imports" are totally new to NFS since U1 but in NFS High Stakes the Japanese version had a R34 Skyline GTR... and that was a full Exotic racing game!

I think free roaming is cool... they only have to change the AI system... people who claim it is boring...to drive around where ever you want need to get a sence of direction!!
but they have to use some cool good tracks... but for me tracks alone don't cut it.. I want to drive around the whole region! when they build tracks like in HP1 and HS they would kick *ss, HP2 wasn't that impressive... but a track like Rocky Pass in HP1 and HS was a wicked track.... still my alround favo... and don't forget Hometown!

Ah.. HP1 and High Stakes, those were good racing games, loved the in-car view. If there will be free roam that will be just awesome.

I think EA visited our showroom and got their inspiration on most of the users cars...
in other words the butt ugly cars some made for NFS U1..

about the incar view.. yeah it looked nice in HP1 and HS but I never used it anyway simply cause it used alot of space in the view and you could not see really well! (half the road was gone...)

3D in car view would be awesome + full 360 rotation inside the car, just like the Hellbender for UT2k4 --> inside car tuning <GASP>
