See the massively multiplayer Need for Speed World in action

This summer, EA is expanding the Need for Speed experience to tens of thousands of players with Need for Speed World, a PC-exclusive, free-to-play, microtransaction-funded MMO. When I saw it at a recent press event in New York City, producer Marc De Vellis hailed its game world as "the biggest Need for Speed arena ever." If that doesn't get you excited, then watch this trailer and see if it piques your interest.

All those dots you see on the map there? Yep, each one is a different player, and they'll all be driving around the game world at once -- when they're not taking part in a race event, that is.

There's a Hummer H1 in Forza Horizon 2, and these 99 other cars

I hate Hummers so much. Only in America would a car that stupid get that popular. Of course, Forza Horizon 2 has the H1, the actual Humvee-looking one that isn't any less stupid for civilian driving, but at least it doesn't look like a gangly, overgrown Power Wheels like the popular H2 you still see out and about sometimes. The first 100 cars are listed here.more

Next week's PC beta for The Crew sounds fairly big

Ubisoft's closed PC beta for The Crew will begin a couple days earlier than previously announced. It's now set to take place from July 21 - 25. What's going to be playable, exactly? A decent amount, considering The Crew's ma...more
