Need For Speed World was the fifteenth installment in the NFS franchise and the first-ever NFS game to offer a massively multiplayer online racing experience. The game was only released for Windows in 2010 and unfortunately, after 5 years the server support for the game was shut down making it unplayable ever since. However, the good news is that modders berkay2578 and Nilzao have created Need for Speed World Offline Server Mod that allows players to be able to play the game.

The open world multiplayer gameplay coupled with the classic “Most Wanted” style of racing offered hours of fun to play with your friends online. Although the official server support for the game ended back in 2015 thanks to the aforementioned mod you will be able to hop in the game have absolute control of the game via a customizable local offline server.
