Default Need for Speed World Goes Free (from BN)

Need for Speed World Goes Free

The Need for Speed World Website announces that this online racing game is now "completely free to play." Previously the game would allow players to progress to level 10 for free, but required the purchase of their Starter Pack to progress further, but now players can go all the way to level 50 and access all game modes and content for free. They also announce compensation for those who already bought the starter pack: "Our VIP gamers who bought the Starter Pack before today (Sept 8th) will soon be receiving a little present from us in the form of three free 7-day car rental vouchers for the BMW M3 GTR, the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 and the Audi R8 4.2 FSI Quattro. We wanted a way to say "Thank you" to our most ardent fans and cool, fast cars seemed to be the best way. We'll be emailing codes to all the qualified gamers shortly. Thank you again for all your support and passion." Thanks Axe.

It was pretty fun, more arcadeish, but they made it work, IMO. But my PC can't run it well. I need an upgrade, and bad!

I tried the Beta out, it kept forcing my 1920x1080 to play at 24hz refresh rate only. If I wanted 60hz, I had to play at 1280x720. Mostly a Jaggy mess, AA barely seemed to make a difference.

Dead Space does the same thing with my display. :: Must be an EA thing.
