Consider your battles against cops in single player mode of Need for Speed World as much-needed practice, because Team Escape mode is almost here, pitting you and your friends against the cops in the online racing battle to end all battles.
Team Escape mode features 6 Epic Escapes that span across the world and feature multiple routes for you and your team to master. These pursuits are much longer than your average race event and can take up to 8 minutes.
Your entire team must outrun the cops while evading the chaos to reach the finish line. Be careful though because cops now have new and improved tactics to stop you and your team.
Getting busted doesn't mean game over in the Need for Speed World free racing game. If a member of your team gets busted, your team will lose a Strike. Once a Strike is used, you will respawn back into the action after spectating your nearest teammate. If there are no strikes left, you will not respawn; however, your teammates can still escape and any busted players will still get rewarded.
With the introduction of Team Escape come two brand new Powerups. Use Team Emergency Evade to save your friends from getting busted with a more powerful blast than regular evade. Play Team Slingshot to give your team a huge burst of speed so they can join your battle in the front.
To do something special for Team Escape, we built The Juggernaut, a custom Dodge Charger Super Bee SRT8 tuned specifically for the most intense pursuits. Juggernaut has explosive acceleration, smashes through roadblocks with ease, hits hard and is the cops' true nemesis.
Escaping the cops before time runs out can take several attempts, so here are some tips and tricks you can use to increase your chances of victory. When approaching a roadblock, look for the weak spots and use Juggernaut to clear the way for your teammates.
Some roadblocks have spikestrips so be sure to bring Run Flats in case you hit them. Unless you are in The Juggernaut, a head-on collision with a Rhino SUV will do serious damage. Be prepared to do some evasive maneuvering if you see Rhinos racing your way.
Intense co-op cop battles are almost here in Need for Speed World!
