Only for those in Asia to start with

As we told you recently Electronic Arts is planning an all out assault on expanding the Need for Speed franchise in new directions. As part of this new franchise expansion, the recently revealed Need for Speed Online is said to be on the way to phase one testing starting in March.

Need for Speed Online will be part of the new Electronic Arts “Free-to-Play” initiative for the PC platform. As was also announced, the initial testing as well as release of Need for Speed Online will be targeted at the Asia market space first with other areas gaining access at a later date, which is expected to be toward the end of the year for those in North America according to sources.


The decision to target Need for Speed Online toward Asia is not surprising has EA claims that the franchise is exceptionally popular with gamers in Taiwan and Hong Kong. In addition EA already has experience with its free-to-play model in Asia with the already released FIFA Online.
