Need for Speed Most Wanted is being created by award-wining and industry-renowned studio, Criterion Games. This open-world driving game puts social competition at the heart of the experience, and lets players compete to becoming the Most Wanted amongst people they care about the most – their friends. And because an open world game deserves an open world structure, Criterion is throwing 20 years of gaming convention out the window and giving players the freedom to drive nearly any car they want from the start of the game. In Need for Speed Most Wanted, if you can find it, you can drive it. The entire gameplay experience is powered by Autolog 2, an innovative online technology powers the player’s way to the top of their Most Wanted list – automatically populating their map with challenges, helping locate Friends in-game, and tracking progress and accomplishments – both offline and online. Everything a player does counts towards the end goal of becoming the Most Wanted list – winning never felt so good.
FIFA Soccer 13 captures the unpredictability of real-world football with breakthrough features like First Touch Control that ensure no two matches ever play the same, and new online services like EA SPORTS Football Club Match Day that completely connect FIFA Soccer 13 to the real-world football season for all of the top leagues. EA SPORTS Football Club Match Day will drive real-world news ripped from the headlines around the world into FIFA Soccer 13. Real-world drama such as injuries, suspensions, team form, and media gossip will be reflected through in-game commentary and play out in-game. FIFA Soccer 13 features breakthrough gameplay innovations such as FIFA 13 First Touch Control and the Player Impact Engine that create a true battle for possession across the entire pitch, and features like Complete Dribbling and Attacking Intelligence that deliver freedom and creativity in attack. FIFA Soccer 13 is Football’s Social Network, where fans connect, compete and share with millions of others around the world. FIFA Soccer 13 was chosen “Best Sports Game” by E3 Game Critics.
