NFS World: Introducing SpeedBoost Friday, 30.04.2010
NFS World OnlineWith the preliminary test of the new client EA introduced the new ingame-currency "SpeedBoost" in Need for Speed World. SpeedBoost is a virtual currency which allows you to purchase digital contents in NFS World.

NFS World is a free-to-play game, but you can buy with real money SpeedBoost, to purchase new Power Ups, Amplifies and Rental Cars - either directly in the game or in the upcoming NeedforSpeed.com Web Store.

SpeedBoost


Additionally, an important fact is, that according to » NFSUnlimited there won't be any content only available for paying users. You can get every item just by playing the game, but if you need more powerups, upgrades etc. immediately, SpeedBoost is a fast and easy way to give you the possibility to purchase these items. Especially the Car Rental feature sounds nice, which allows you to rent a powerful car for 24 hours, where you can try it, take it out for races and collect some serious rep.

SpeedBoost will be first available in the » preliminary test this weekend. You can find more information about SpeedBoost in this article on the official website:

NFS World: Preliminary Client-Test Friday, 30.04.2010
NFS World OnlineThe fourth beta of Need for Speed World is coming up soon. Until then, EA invited the most active players from previous beta events to test the next game client, to ensure stability and performance. The main goal of this preliminary test is testing the new features, before the client is available for a wider audience in the next beta. The test runs from Friday until Sunday, 2nd May 2010.

Some of the new release features include new power ups, new cars, improved police encounters, visual updates to the world, and performance / stability optimization. The most important addition will be the ability to purchase power ups using the Need for Speed World in-game currency called SpeedBoost.

Once this preliminary test has been completed and we collect our test data / fix the critical bugs we’ll begin our preparation for rolling out the next Beta. For the next beta we’ll be re-inviting all the participants from all previous Betas, as well as inviting a lot more of you who haven’t yet had a chance to participate in the beta. We sincerely appreciate your patience.

NFS World: Third Beta coming up! Monday, 05.04.2010
NFS World OnlineEA announced the third beta for Need for Speed World! While the first two events only were for one weekend, this time you get to play a whole week, starting on April 7th, 4pm (GMT) until April 14th, 7:59 (GMT)!

This beta many bugs from the first and second event were fixed. The goal of the third beta is to test fundamental functionality, both within the game and on the servers

Therefore, at certain points during the beta we will ask that all players participate in certain races or all engage in a police pursuit at the same time. When we need specific tests run we will communicate with the players through the in-game chat, on the » NFS World forums and through the » .

Please note that before every beta-event all data is being resetted and you will have to create a new driver profile.

If you're looking for opponents in multiplayer-races, you should definitely check out the » NFS World PVP Events site, which will show what races people are queuing up to play the game. (Unfortunately currently it shows only an error message.)

If you want to participate at the beta, sign up on the NFS World website and hopefully you get selected for one of the future beta events.

As mentioned earlier, we can help you get in the beta by, forwarding accounts from our community to EA: just send us an e-mail to bs [at] nfsplanet [dot] com or a PM to Shocker with your EA account (e-mail address) you used for signing up for the NFS World beta. (Unfortunately it's too late for the third beta, but hopefully you can join one of the future beta events.)
