The game seems focused on online multiplayer with the addition of the AutoLog. The Autolog was made for Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit and is an in game tool that tracks every action you do, recording your best time, achievements etc. It also generates speed points during your online play, the speed points are used in the ranking system to see who is the most wanted.
Criterion has been known for making the Burnout Paradise and Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, 2 successful releases in the racing game world. Producer Matt Webster stated that Most Wanted is "everything we know about open-world driving, just piling it together. All the best stuff about Burnout and everything we did in Hot Pursuit, we're just smashing them together."
Need for Speed: Most Wanted is said to be more of a driving simulator and not as arcade styled as Burnout or Hot Pursuit. The release date is said to be October 30 2012. Those of us who choose pre-order the game gain access to 1 of 3 pre-order bonus packs (Speed Pack, Strike Pack and Power Pack).
