EA’s reinvention of the Need for Speed franchise is ready to roll.
Bringing the franchise back to the fore for race fans in a major way, EA and developer Ghost Games’ new take on Need for Speed is looking pretty sharp. The game offers five different ways to play (Speed, Style, Build, Crew, and Outlaw) and goes heavy on the customization of your rides, offering real-world parts officially licensed and included for you to play around with.
That’s not all either, as Ghost Games has included an actual storyline for the reboot, one that they hope you’ll actually invest in.
“Since we started the journey to reboot this storied franchise, our goal was to create a game that delivered on what our fans wanted,” said Marcus Nilsson, Executive Producer, Ghost Games. “We’ve gone deep on authentic customization and crafted an experience that’s rich in the modern day urban car culture. We’ve also brought back an immersive narrative and a nocturnal open world, and weaved everything together to create the definitive Need for Speed.”
Everything sounds solid and the game looks undeniably great in action; not a bad time to be a race fan really. Need for Speed arrives today on the PS4 and Xbox One, with a PC version training along, set to release this Spring.
