What is Need for Speed World?
Exclusive to PC, Need for Speed World is the first massively-multiplayer racing game in the Need for Speed series. Race with your friends online or compete against them and thousands of other racers in the enormous NFS universe, built specifically for World.

What are the features of Need for Speed World?
Some of the features of NFSW include:
- Massively-multiplayer Need for Speed racing action in a huge online NFS world.
- Classic game modes (drag, drift, checkpoint?) as well as exciting new races.
- Brag to your friends about your wins – or taunt them over their losses – in World’s online community, including Facebook/Twitter support.
- Create a street racing legend by advancing your driver through solo and multiplayer races.
- A huge selection of licensed vehicles as well as thousands of parts to turn your car from happy cruiser to snarling beast
- The best car customization engine ever seen in a driving game. If you can dream it, you can create it in World.

What languages are available for Need for Speed World?
Currently the Beta program will only be offered in English, but we encourage everyone to apply. Stay tuned as we will have more information on additional languages in the future!

What is the Beta Program?
Before Need for Speed World launches, we need you – the beta testing team – to help us out by giving your opinion about the game’s performance, quality, stability and how well it functions so we can continue making World an outstanding online experience as we near the final release date.

We also do testing in-house, but where you come in is providing a second set of eyes and ears for our development team. You’ll be using a pre-release copy of World - the same one the team uses - to provide us with feedback.

As a tester, we want you to report any glitches, bugs, crashes or other issues directly to the NFSW Live Team.

What’s in it for you is simple: you’ll be one of the first people on the planet to play the first MMORG based on the Need for Speed series – for free.

During the testing phase, you’ll also be getting e-mails about new builds and surveys asking how you’ve enjoyed your World experience.

Coupled with forum feedback, these surveys help us make World the best online racing game on the planet.

I registered, all went well. As a 19-year old male from Holland with an average spec gaming laptop, I think I'd be an excellent candidate for the beta. We'll see what EA thinks.

@ShuckDog: the confirmation e-mail states they'll let you know in a few weeks.
