NFS: Most Wanted confirmed

Build up your "rap sheet" and "street cred" with EA's new urban racer.

Electronic Arts has announced that Need for Speed Most Wanted is currently in development for PS2, Xbox, GameCube, Nintendo DS, GBA, PSP and PC.

The game combines "the thrill of illicit street racing and tuner customisation with the intensity of strategic police pursuits." You'll go head-to-head with other expert racers as well as up to six police vehicles at a time, and must build up your rap sheet and street cred to make it to the top of the "Black List" of top class drivers.

"Out-race your opponents, evade cops and exploit the open world - street racing doesn't get any better than this," said senior producer Larry LaPierre.

"Players instantly will feel the thrill of the ride as they hit the streets in an open world environment where drivers can tune their cars to compete against any class of vehicles, or use their wits to out-fox the law to satisfy their need for speed."

New gameplay and customisation options are promised, along with new tuners, muscle and sports cars. The game is being developed by EA Canada and will go on show at this year's E3.
