It’s been confirmed that Need For Speed: Most Wanted (a Criterion Game, don’t you know) will be imbued with the power of ‘American Muscle’ when it’s released later this year with the announcement of five all American motors that’ll be included in the game.
If names like Ford, Corvette and Hummer means anything to you, head on down below for the first images and details on the latest set of announced cars for Need For Speed: Most Wanted:
Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
“The Muscle car wars have been raging since the 60’s, and Chevy’s recent remake of the archetypal muscle car escalated the conflict to new heights.
If it was any more awesome, it’d be banned under the Geneva Convention.”
“Ford’s first entry into the supercar world was nothing short of unstoppable, with the GT 40 dominating Le Mans through the late 60’s.
“But it wasn’t until 50 years later that Ford reimagined the GT40 as the Ford GT. It was a celebration of 100 Years of Ford and put America firmly back in the fight for 200mph supercar supremacy.”
“Few cars are more American than the Corvette, and the ZR1 is in a class of its own.
“Arguably the biggest bang for your buck you can get, it’s as if Chevy poured as much power as they could into the car. Then decided it didn’t have enough and added more.”
Hummer H1 Alpha
“The Hummer is big, tough and unstoppable. Join your friends on the start line, then use your size and weight to outmuscle them to the finish.
“Wind the hulking Hummer H1 Alpha up to full speed and practically nothing can stop you reaching your destination.”
Ford F-150 SVT Raptor
“Nothing says durable like the F-150. And nothing says offroad like the SVT Raptor.
“According to our friends over at Ford, the F150-Raptor glides over obstacles with ease, thanks to its Fox Racing Shox internal triple-bypass shocks.”
Need For Speed: Most Wanted is out this year on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC – El33tonline’s hands-on preview is over here to let you know what you’re in for.
I also told the developers that the cars in the game felt a little ‘heavy’ and they got a little defensive.
