Motor City Online -an online project dedicated to the American avtokulture. Originally the game was considered part of a series of Need For Speed, but lost in the development of well-known prefix. However, the game is still designed studio EA Seattle, which had a hand in creating NFS High Stakes, and was based on the engine EAGL (versions of the same High Stakes).
We should also note the development of social and economic system: in addition to car auctions (over 60) and parts (over 2,000), depreciation and repairs, you can join clubs and associations to create their own. Membership in such clubs gave access to a few modifications to vehicles and spare parts. We should also note that all the parts, like the cars are fully licensed – if you want in your garage could raise a virtual replica of the car. Well, or vice versa.
As for the gameplay, the game was available to 24 tracks and a variety of modes – the standard sprint, and the ring to drag racing, oval, and derby. The game was also present that has already become a standard tier system throughput.
Reasons why the project was canceled a few: a formal reduction of user activity and neokupaemost game, the players themselves have started to leave because of the very high cost, reducing the stability of the client, and some innovations, such as for example the introduction of Japanese cars (Toyota Supra and Mitsubishi Eclipse) . As a result, in February 2003 it was officially announced discontinuation of the game, was terminated March issue of updates, and finally August 29, 2003 the server was disconnected.
Despite the best efforts of fans to create your own server, so far nobody has been able to do so. On the Internet there are many projects, such as Motor City Offline and Motor World Online, aimed to return to one degree or another private project, but the farthest in this case she went Electronic Arts, presenting in 2009 the ideological heir of Motor City Online – Need For Speed World.
On one of the foreign forum user RacingFreak published files that can realize the dream of many fans of the series Need For Speed ??- a small program allows you to run Motor City Online. So far, the only available mode is a fast race, but otherwise the player is completely free to choose a car, and trails. During the race, you can also delve into the settings and control charts, and after the race – to see repeated.
