NFS 5: First Mod is coming! Friday, 26.04.2002
There is still no editor for the 3D-model for Need for Speed Porsche Unleashed available, but despite of this, ALIEN Real is working on the first Mod (Modification) for this game. It is not finished yet, but it will contain these modifications:

- new tracknames
- new textures of the tracks
- new names of the kits
- different menu garage
- different starting video
- new loading-screen
- all cars new tuned (DTC Cars)
- all new cars buyable in the evolution mode
- new In-Game music
- new spareparts systems (kits)
- interesting optical tuning possibilities


The mod will be loved by the majority of car lovers, because ALIEN Real put a lot of effort in the tuning of the cars, because a modify of the 3D-model is not possible yet.

As soon as the mod is finished, you will find it here exklusive for NFS-Planet!

Who can't wait for the mod release, can download the DTC Cars (also made by ALIEN Real) in the meanwhile:

Within the last few days there were many rumours about a possible PC Version of the game Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2. Now the EA member of staff Cadillac announces inofficial that there will be a PC Version...only the date is not secure.

"HP2 will be available for the PC. I do not know when.
I'll come back when I have this information"


Update:
Cadillac wrote once again a short statement as an answer to a post of a user who wants a PC version of NFS Hot Pursuit 2:

"Keep yer pants on...
Plans are for this to happen."

NFS 6: Rumours cleared Tuesday, 16.04.2002
All the hopes of a possible PC Version for Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2, because of the rumours the last time, now got cleared. The mistake with the additional platforms for NFS HP 2 on the website of EA Norway has been reasoned in a mail. It was just a mistake from the webmaster.

"I am sorry to inform you that our webmaster has not done his job correctly, and that the different platforms are not correct for NFS." [...] " I can gurantee that the information on the norwegian site are incorrect. Again, I am sorry for this, but mistakes happen."

NFS 6 & MCO: Screenshots Update Tuesday, 16.04.2002
In our screenshots-sections for Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2 and also the new section for Motor City Online got an update. I implemented in both sections a new script, which divides the screens in several pages, so you have much more overview and you have to load less.
To Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2 I added 9 new screenshots, but most of them are already quite old. So you can now view 93 pictures.
To the section of Motor City Online I added 4 new screenshots, which show like the other 3 the upcoming track Goose Point.

NFS 6: Releasedate changed Monday, 15.04.2002
Our affialite NFSWorld.org writes that Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2 for the Playstation 2 will be released a few months later. The actual releasedate is 3rd September 2002.
So the releasedate of the game in Europe als has to change, but Electronic Arts Germany has not changed its release list yet.

Additionally it is interesting to know, that the description at Electronic Arts Norway (we wrote about it) - that NFS HP 2 will also be released for PC - now suddenly disappeared, and now there stands that the game will only be released for the PS 2. If it was a mistake of the webmaster, or they are thinking about making a PC version may be never solved...
