Electronic Arts and developer Ghost Games have finally announced the new Need for Speed game and this one is called Need for Speed: Heat.
The game is described as the “ultimate street racer-versus-cop fantasy.” It will launch on November 8 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC with EA Access and Origin Access Basic members getting to play the first 10 hours early starting on November 5.
The game will come in both a standard edition and a Deluxe Edition when it launches. Those who pre-order the standard edition will receive the K.S. Edition-styled Mitsubishi Evolution X in-game vehicle. Those who pre-order the Deluxe Edition will get three K.S. Edition-styled cars (BMW i8 Coupe, Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe, and Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport.) The Deluxe Edition also includes deluxe edition character clothing and increased earnings of in-game currencies Bank and Rep.
While the reveal trailer below has no gameplay you won’t have to wait long to see it as the first gameplay will be shown on Monday during Gamescom 2019 Opening Night.
Need for Speed: Heat sends fans to Palm City, a brand-new open world where street racers have gathered to make their names known. By day, players compete in the Speedhunters Showdown, a sanctioned competition where they earn Bank to customize and upgrade their garage of high-performance cars. At night, players risk it all to build their Rep in underground races where a rogue police task force roams the streets, ready to take racers down and swipe all their earnings. The roads, the risks, and the rides never end in this street racer where a player can roll deep with their crew, build their garage full of hot cars, and make the city their nonstop playground.
