Need For Speed Carbon


Recommended Posts

According to Game Informer and Larry LaPierre, Executive Producer of EA Black Box, the game will be taking its ideas from real life racing clubs, giving you the abililty to recruit teammates, which is a first for NFS. From the group of teammates you can pick specific people, like a pathfinder who can help you through the track, a blocker who races beside you in the race and can target cars during the race and knock them off the course, and a drafter who can help you find the slipstream in the race. Also from this team you can assign Fabricators, people who "Trick Out" your ride, Mechanics, and a "fixer", a person behind-the-scenes who can get the "heat" off your back or truckers out of your way. Also new to the NFS franchise is the ability to win territories, which has benefits from certain car part stores to important people. The game will also feature a new technology called AutoSculpt, a tool giving you the ability to customize everything on your ride, down to how you want your rims to twist on the way from the center to the rim. You can also design exactly how your front and rear bumpers look. The game will also feature drift racing, like that in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and canyon racing, a race where you have to follow a racer down a mountain trail and not hit them or fall off the mountain.

Also according to LaPierre, this game is the sequel to Most Wanted and incorporates many features used in Most Wanted.

According to the July 2006 Game Informer issue, Need For Speed: Carbon's city is located on the West Coast of the United States, presumably California, and according to recent photographs there are multiple districts, each one different from the last. Several real-world cities that apparently influenced the designs of this city are San Francisco, Los Angeles, Santa Fe, Las Vegas, Phoenix, San Diego, Seattle, and Vancouver. A screenshot of a car's license plate has revealed that the name of the city is named Palmont [1]. Within each district there are 5-7 neighborhoods, and one goal in the game is to win as many of these neighborhoods as possible to gain turf and find better shops and teams. Studies on the photographs of the game itself reveal that there are steep and unforgiving canyons, a massive oceanfront harbor, a central business district lined with skyscrapers, palm tree-lined avenues, rolling high-class hills, Spanish missions, an area loaded with casinos and over-the-top resorts, and what appears to be a 'Little Bangkok' (one photo reveals a lantern-strewn avenue lined with Thai neon advertisements).

hey man!

any ideas on what the system requiremnts for this?

Actually no idea anyway NFS Carbon gona be the world best Car Racing Game, they included ( Touge Racing ) with a new name called Canyon Racing like the Last race of Tokiyo Drift

But the best thing is u can create ur own body kit, Eg u can make the front lip bigger smaller wider etc and u can increse the size of the Muffler and change the aerodynamic setting of the spoiler as u want

And it seems to be Tuner cars gona rule the entire game specially in canyon racing cus if u fail to controll ur car ur out , and its very difficult to controll Exotic and Muscle cars.

Im wating to play the original game

Actually I found this game easier than NFS most wanted, and completed career mode twice. once with a Tier 2 car aswel (mazda Rx 7)

In this game cars are classed to 3 categories Tier1,tier2 and Tier3. Even a fully modified Tier 1 car would not keep up with the top speed and acceleration of Tier 2 or 3 cars. I found it hard to believe it had Chrystler C300 which is a bitch in every sense and not a sportscar at all and missed out Ferrari 430, 360, Enzo and bugatti veyron
