The journalistic worlds of automobiles and video games rarely come together, but they’re comfortable driving partners in “Need for Speed: Most Wanted.”

Available now, the new title from Criterion Games is “an open-world driving game that puts social competition at the heart of the experience and lets players compete to become the Most Wanted amongst people they care about the most: their friends.”

As an open world game, virtual drivers can go anywhere and experience any chase on the the title’s streets. Players have the freedom to drive nearly any car they want from the start of the game.

Criterion reports that the entire gameplay experience is powered by Autolog 2.0, an online technology that powers the player’s way to the top of the Most Wanted list – both offline and online.

To tease more car lovers, Criterion sent Crave Online a complete list of the cars available to drivers in the game. Some are available when any player fires up the game, and some are unlocked as the racing unfolds.
