EA has announced that Need for Speed World will go live on July 20.
The client itself is a free download through here, and you can play for free until level 10.
Players who pre-order Need for Speed World will have a one-week headstart to the game on July 13, with increased Rep, and access to all upcoming Beta events.
Driver names can also be reserved in advance, and early adopters will also get VIP status permanently displayed in their driver profile, along with a Speedhunters Toyota Corolla AE86.
Developed by Black Box, the game promises “deep, RPG-like progression”, and of course, loads of racing.
