The lights are on
Criterion Games' Burnout Paradise eliminated the distinction between single- and multiplayer, and the studio's upcoming title Need for Speed Most Wanted does the same. Check out the game's latest multiplayer trailer.
As players race through the world, they will see their friends' accomplishments pop up in real-time. Pass by a speed camera that your friend has posted a top score on, and it will list that speed as you race by. You can even see billboards your friends have found because they'll have their ugly mugs on them.
Today at Gamescom, the development team also mentioned that almost all the cars in the game will be unlocked from the get-go, and that rides will become more powerful via upgrades.
Finally, via a feature called CloudCompete you can earn points in the console versions of the game and transfer them onto your iOS and Vita, and vice versa.
Need for Speed Most Wanted comes out for Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Vita, iOS, and Android on October 30.

seems ill be at the top of the charts again.
I'm still kind of bummed that you can't play as the cops in multiplayer, but it still looks amazing.
EA, just let Criterion make a Burnout game instead of making a Burnout game and putting the Need for Speed name over it. Honestly if this was a Burnout game there would be barely a difference.
Love the fact that they played a "The Who" song during the tralier. It looks perrty awsome

Looks nice but I think Forza Horizon will be better.
Looking pretty decent...
Loved the original and this looks even better
The song alone nearly sells me on the game.
Now that great song sounds like some sorta half assed POP/RAP mix GOD come down and smite them for this
So this will be my Burnout Paradise 2 until there's an actual BP 2? I'm okay with this. I can see me and my friends spending many, many hours in this game. Day 1 because Criterion.
