Introducing Race Now to Need for Speed World

Posted on October 10, 2010

Last week we introduced a feature to Need for Speed World entitled ‘Race Now’ and since it’s a new feature we wanted to give the community a quick walkthrough on how it works and how it will benefit you to use it.

What is Race Now?
Race Now is a feature which allows players to quickly find the first suitable Multiplayer race to join with one simple click of a button. It’s perfect for casual players who don’t have a lot of time and just want to play any race by minimizing the amount of time it takes for players to exit a race and enter the next one. Race Now automatically tries to find a suitable Multiplayer race for the player to join, based on our matchmaking system. Usually the system will search for races close to the player’s current Rep Level… basically Race Now gets you racing now on the best possible track with the optimum level and rep opportunities.

How do I use Race Now?
Race Now can be activated by clicking on the Race Now button (the NFS icon) on your menu bar on the top of your screen. When you click the button, it will indicate the current status by displaying ‘Searching For Races’. Once a race is found the Race gadget will appear as normal and you will see which race you’re about to join. At this point, just click the ‘Join’ button, as usual, to join the Race Lobby.

How do I turn off Race Now?
You can de-activate Race Now by clicking a second time on the Race Now button while it’s active. It can also be deactivated by choosing to join other races at a race icon (on the World map), engaging into a pursuit or returning to the Safehouse. Race Now will also be turned off once a suitable race has been found.

Hopefully this walkthrough has helped you understand the new Race Now feature. Now go on and start using it!
