Need for Speed World shut down Thursday, 16.04.2015
NFS World OnlineAfter five years the Free2Play game Need for Speed World is coming to an end. You can play the game for a couple of weeks and race your last lap on July 14th, 2015. After that the servers will be shut down.

When it launched 2010, Need for Speed World brought together best-in-class action racing with an unparalleled social experience on PC. However, five years on, we feel that the game no longer lives up to the high standard set by the Need for Speed franchise. The steady stream of live content kept our players engaged but unfortunately we were not able to keep pace with feature development. At this point, the major overhaul needed to bring the game up to speed is not viable for us, so after careful review we came to a decision to stop development and begin winding down support of Need for Speed World.

Purchasing SpeedBoost is already deactivated and you can spend your currency you already have until July 14th. Additionally it's not possible anymore to register new accounts.


Need for Speed World is not the only Free2Play game carried to the grave, Battlefield Heroes, Battlefield Play4Free and FIFA World are also being discontinued.

In more than five years since most of these titles launched, how we play games has changed dramatically. These were pioneering experiences, and we’re humbled that, over the years, so many of you joined us to enjoy the games and the community. While we say farewell to these free-to-play titles in the next few months, we are always exploring new concepts and ways to bring great games to more players around the world.
