Before we were ‘Fast and the Furious’, we had the ‘Need for Speed’. It’s time to turn back the clock and speed into the future with the latest incarnation of one of the most beloved racing franchises of all time – EA’s Need For Speed.
The new Need for Speed introduces compelling and innovative gameplay through Five Ways to Play – Speed, Style, Build, Crew, and Outlaw. Each drives your Need for Speed game through an interconnected narrative. Built around five real world automotive icons, each of whom is a hero of today’s car culture, they will inspire the player to experience all Five Ways to Play. Earn their respect and build your reputation on your journey to become the ultimate icon.
EA promises action-packed overlapping stories, rich with distraction based gameplay to ensure variety and personal preference. Carve your own path through Ventura Bay by playing different event types and propel your progression by ultimately winning your way.
Speed – Pedal to the metal, high speeds, maximum adrenaline rush. Keep your nerve and never lift off the gas, the fearless always push the limits.
Style – Expression through driving, sliding the car into a corner sideways with ultimate precision. For some, style is all that matters.
Build – Take your car to the extreme through visual and performance modification. The constant need to improve and personalize. Craftsmen build, searching for perfection.
Crew – Ride together with your Crew and never hit the streets alone. Put your faith in others and the skill of close proximity chaos.
Outlaw – Messing with and escaping from the cops. Push the limits and live life on the edge as you crave the thrill of the chase.
“We’re bringing in Five Ways to Play to ensure that your gameplay experience is all your own and helps propel your progression every second, every minute,” said Marcus Nilsson, Executive Producer at Ghost Games. “We want everyone to experience that perfect Need for Speed moment – driving insanely fast, sliding through a corner in your customized ride alongside your friends, whilst being chased by the cops.”
Coming November 3, 2015 in Asia, Need for Speed delivers rich, authentic customization and delivers on one of the most requested feature by fans. Working with Speedhunters, the game will deliver hand-picked iconic cars, the hottest authentic after-market brands, performance tuning, and personalized handling. Your car will become your form of self-expression on the road as you set up your ride as you hit the streets.
One of the first impressions we got in the office when we played the trailer was “What movie is this?” Need For Speed looks primed and ready to race its way back into our hands. Will it live up to it’s promise? I, for one, sure hope so.
Need for Speed will launch worldwide on Origin for PC , PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
