Rumour: Need for Speed: Out of the Law - UPDATE: Fake Monday, 11.01.2010
Update: The information in this news was confirmed to be fake: please scroll down for more information.

As already reported, Criterion Games is working on a new Need for Speed title. There wasn't much information about this game, until now: the russian website NFSUnlimited.ru published possible screenshots of this NFS, which seem to reveil the title of the game: Need for Speed: Out of the Law:

Out of the Law


It's not sure, whether we can believe this information or not, but according to the russian website the game will make its turn to street racing. Only this time you won't drive super-expensive exotics, but sports cars like the Nissan Skyline R32, or Mazda MX-5. Another interesting detail: for the first time in the history of the NFS series this game will presumably contain motorcycles! Maybe also SUVs. Additionally you will be able to choose your personal number plate on each machine.

Out of the Law


The game will be set in the fictional city Sun-Bay, which will have San Francisco as its prototype. The size of the city should be a bit larger than the one in Need for Speed Undercover.
The police will have an extended vehicle arsenal, presumably patrol motorcycles.

So far, these is quite interesting information, although you have to be very careful with what to believe. It wouldn't be the first time, that people spread false information. Particularly the second screenshot with the BMW seems to be a fake, since it looks like existing pictures from previous NFS titles. As soon as we know more, we'll let you know.

UPDATE: As Criterion Games announced, the pictures and information about this new NFS is definitely a fake and not true. Unfortunately this was expected...

NFS U2: ModTools v1.0 released Sunday, 03.01.2010
NFS Underground 2nfsu360 released a tool package for Need for Speed Underground 2, containing three useful tools which allow you to apply numerous modifications to the game:

With NFS:U2 Geometry Compiler you can create fully functional mods for NFS Underground 2. You can make all customizations for the cars: vinyls, decals, neons, engine styles, trunk layouts, trunk components, hoods styles, bumpers, side skirts, body kits etc. Also animation for trunk, doors, hoods - working. But it is possible to make a car without these features. Conversion without customizing parts is much easier.

NFS:U2/MW Texture Compiler is a tool for creating NFS: Underground 2 & NFS: Most Wanted textures.bin files. Compiler support .dds files.
DDS file must be compressed as DXT 1 or DXT3. Long names are supported.

NFS-DataEd for NFS: U2 - with this tool you can fix wheel positions for your addons cars and also you can assign 'Manufacturer logo' to your car. You can import exported files using NFS-CfgInstaller.

You can provide NFS-CfgInstaller with your own mod package to allow install configuration data.


This could give the modding community around NFS Underground 2 a new push, as the BMW M3 shows, nfsu360 could successfully convert to NFSU2. But more about that later...

You can download the NFSU2 ModTools v1.0 here:
