Need for Speed Most Wanted confirmed for October

Though EA confirmed the game last week, the company showed off Need for Speed Most Wanted at its E3 press briefing today. More significantly, the game was given a firm release date: October 30.

The game is coming from Criterion, and carrying that open-world appeal of Burnout Paradise. In a short gameplay demonstration, we saw the open world in action. EA announced in a press release that it will also ship a "limited edition" pack featuring double speed points, custom liveries, pre-customized rollouts, a Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale and Porsche 911 Carrera S.

It's headed to PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Vita, iOS and Android.
