Need for Speed World Launches Drag Mode

After an absence of six years Drag mode has finally made a spectacular return to the Need For Speed series as it is now available to all users of the free to play PC title Need for Speed World.

In order for you to kick-start Drag Mode you must first visit the Car Dealer before hopping into the driver’s seat of two brand-new cars specifically designed for the new Drag Mode these include the Toyota Supra “Street Mod” Drag Edition and the Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake “Pro Stock” Drag Edition.

Drag Mode is a multiplayer drag race that players can join by searching for a lobby in Match-Making or by creating a Private Match to compete against their friends. Drivers will be able to race in four different environments against up to five opponents, allowing for a maximum of six drivers in each race.

Once players get off the line they’re going to need to simultaneously manage their gear shifts while keeping an eye on the race to avoid opponents and traffic. Great gear shifting is vital to any victory on the drag strip so players will want to change gears in the green zone to get a perfect shift and a nitrous boost! 

Another new addition to Need for Speed World is the introduction of Drag Skill Mods, which will enhance the driver’s car for optimum drag racing! The new Drag Skill Mods include:

  • Aero Drag Reduction – Improves aerodynamic properties on the car, improving overall performance in Drag races.
  • Launch Grip – Improves acceleration in Drag races by enhancing tire grip at race start.
  • Gear Ratio Enhancement – Increases the size of the RPM band required to hit a Perfect or Good Shift. Perfect Shifts give a small boost and the RPM range to hit gets smaller each gear.
