Specifically, crashes and rendering problems on ATI Radeon X1300, X1550 and X1800 graphics cards have been addressed. Fixes are also included for Intel embedded graphics chipsets such as the Intel GMA 500, Intel GMA 600 and Intel GMA X3000 which are running older graphics drivers.

NFS Hot Pursuit Demo is coming! Monday, 25.10.2010
NFS Hot PursuitThe Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Demo will be available tomorrow on October 26th, 2010 in the PSN Store and Xbox Marketplace. Only the PSN Store Europe will have to wait one day longer - the demo will be released there on October 27th.

Unfortunately, there is no NFS Hot Pursuit demo for PC planned!

In the Need for Speed Hot Pursuit demo, players will be able to chase as a cop in the Dark Horse Hot Pursuit event, speeding through the coastal highway and mountainous ridges of Seacrest County. At the heart of the demo is a social network called Autolog that tracks cop and racer performances while playing solo and uses those statistics to generate fierce competition between friends. Once players add a friend to their Need for Speed friends list, the second event will unlock called Roadster’s Reborn, where gamers can compete as racers to set the best times. When they download and play the demo they will also earn 500 bounty award points in the full game for both Cop and Racer careers**. Accruing bounty will allow players to unlock events and exotic cars and progress through their careers in the full game.

The Need for Speed Hot Pursuit demo will be available for download October 26 on Xbox LIVE™ Marketplace worldwide and the PlayStation®Network in North America and on October 27 on the PlayStation Network in Europe. The retail game will be available on November 16 in North America and on November 18 and 19 in Europe on the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and PC.

NFS World goes Free 2 Play! Thursday, 09.09.2010
NFS World OnlineEA is opening Need for Speed World for everyone by removing the Level 10 limit and turning the game into a real Free to Play game! Previously, gamers who didn't buy the Starter Pack were unable to progress past Level 10. Beginning today, anyone will be able to race all the way through to Level 50 and will have full access to the entire World, all Events and Game Modes, both present and future.

Level 50

Who already bought the starter pack before today (Sept 8th) will soon be receiving a little present from EA in the form of three free 7-day car rental vouchers for the BMW M3 GTR, the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 and the Audi R8 4.2 FSI Quattro.

With the complete opening of NFS World the game will likely get a new boost, especially after the announcement of several updates, we already wrote about in our Feature Preview.

By the way, our NFS World Leaderboards are currently in beta phase. If you want to challenge the NFS-Planet Community, just enter your NFS World driver name under Gameaccounts and check your race times at our Leaderboards!
