NFS Shift: GeForce v197.13 introduces Ambient Occlusion Thursday, 18.03.2010
NFS ShiftNvidia released a betaversion of its new driver package GeForce 197.13. In addition to performance increases and SLI-Profiles for several games, this time it contains something special for Need for Speed Shift as well: With this driver version Nvidia introduces support for Ambient Occlusion.

Ambient Occlusion is a new technology, which adds realism to scenes by reducing the intensity of ambient lights on surfaces blocked by surrounding objects. It enhances depth perception by providing a soft shadow effect for objects based on their placement in the scene.

You can find more information about Ambient Occlusion, as well as some examples on this website of Nvidia:

» Ambient Occlusion

You can download the GeForce 197.13 Beta-Driver under the following link. Please keep in mind that it's a beta driver, so it might not be stable yet:

NFS World: Second Closed Beta this Weekend! Thursday, 18.03.2010
NFS World OnlineNeed for Speed World is currently in the betaphase. The first beta-event took place for invited participants at the beginning of March, but this weekend the beta continues: starting on Friday, Marth 19th @ 4pm (GMT) until Monday, March 22nd @ 7am (GMT)!

The second closed beta will feature almost twice the number of racers as the first had, so prepare yourself for plenty of competition! Who already had the luck to participate at the first closed beta, is invited to participate in the second closed beta as well! Watch your email accounts for invitations.

The first beta had a limited number of features, level progression and content, since the developers are testing the progression and variables to ensure quality data. As the beta program progresses, more features and contents are being unlocked. Please note, that between the beta-events all data on the server is cleared, so you'll have to create a new driver in the second beta.

NFS World


Here's a summory of changes, which were made since the last beta:
We’ve made some changes to the leveling pace, Lucky Draw tables (much fewer One More Laps!) and event unlocking. We’d like to see more 8 player races, so we’ve tweaked matchmaking and the number of events that unlock at each level. We’ve also fixed some crash and time out bugs and provided a way for you to send us crash logs if you run into anything new. For more details on the changes, see the Need for Speed World forum. Please give it all a try and keep letting us know what you think and logging those bugs!

If you aren't among the lucky one's yet, who can participate in this beta-event, don't worry as there are more beta-events to come! If you haven't signed up for the beta yet, go straight to the » official NFS World website and sign up!

We can try to help you to get in one of the upcoming beta-events: We got the opportunity to submit e-mail addresses from our community members to EA, so you have a better chance to receive a beta key. If you're interested, send us an e-mail to bs [at] nfsplanet [dot] com or a PM to Shocker, with your e-mail address, you used for the beta signup.

Rumour: NFS Hot Pursuit Remake & NFS Shift 2? Saturday, 06.03.2010
Electronic ArtsNeed for Speed all around: Need for Speed World started this weekend its (western) » betaphase, but there are two more NFS titles in the works, which will be released in Q4 2010 and Q1 2011. (We wrote about that » here.)

Now we heard a rumour, that this year's NFS will be a Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, possibly a remake of the classic NFS III Hot Pursuit (1998). According to the name, we might can expect the return of police pursuits. It's not known yet, if the game will contain an open world.
If we can believe previous rumours, this might be the title Criterion Games is working on, who are the creators of the successful Burnout-series.

The second game is planned for release in the 1st quarter in 2011. As it seems, it'll be a successor of NFS Shift and possibly carry the name Need for Speed Shift 2. Given the success of NFS Shift this seems to be a logical step of EA.

As soon as we have more information, we'll keep you updated.
