Announcing the Need for Speed World Oktoberfest Community Event

September 16, 2010



We are very happy to announce the Need for Speed World Oktoberfest Community Event!

The Oktoberfest community event is the second of many community events we plan to run and this time we've done something very special to the game.  On Saturday, September 18th the boardwalk in Camden will be turned into Oktoberfest!  We're going to have posters of the pretzel girls, pretzel wagon smackables, giant pretzel inflatables and things to see while you drive through the area. The boardwalk is going to look great!

With this whole new look to the Camden boardwalk it's only fitting that we add a new race event; so we're also going to be adding a circuit race too.  The new race event will be called "Welcome To Oktoberfest".

The Oktoberfest community event will begin on Saturday, September 18th and will continue until Saturday, October 2nd.  During the event we will be hosting a competition to see who can post the best total race time on the "Welcome To Oktoberfest" race event.

There will be three car classes that you can compete in; tier 1 cars, tier 2 cars & tier 3 cars.  The best racer from each class will win a great prize that have been provided by Logitech:

Driver with the best time in a tier 1 car wins a Logitech MX 518 Optical Gaming Mouse
Driver with the best time in a tier 2 car wins a Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard
Driver with the best time in a  tier 3 car wins a Logitech Driving Force GT PC Racing Wheel

Big thanks to Logitech for providing some very cool prizes!!
