WATCH: Brand new 'Need for Speed Heat' trailer
Ghost Games an Electronic Arts have just announced Need for Speed Heat, which is said to offer some of the deepest customisation options in the series to date, authentic urban car culture, and an ‘immersive’ narrative that pulls you into the game.
Need for Speed Heat will have you drifting your way around Palm City, a brand-new open world in the Need for Speed franchise. By day, players compete in the Speedhunters Showdown, a sanctioned competition where they earn Bank to customise and upgrade their garage of high-performance cars. At night, players build their Rep in underground races where a rogue police task force roams the streets, ready to take racers down.
“We’re delivering more options than ever before for players to be unique and make themselves known,” said Riley Cooper, Creative Director at Ghost Games. “Our fans have been clear that they want more cars, more customisation, and more challenges, and we’re tuning up on every aspect. From your character’s style to your car’s performance and your driving style, we’re fuelling everyone’s creativity with this new game.”
Fans who pre-order the standard edition will get a K.S Edition styled Mitsubishi Evolution X. Pre-ordering the Deluxe Edition adds three K.S Edition styled cars (BMW i8 Coupe, Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe, Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport), access to exclusive deluxe edition character clothing, and increased earnings of in-game currencies Bank and Rep.
Need for Speed Heat launches 8th November, 2019 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. You can take it for an early test drive on 5th November, 2019 with EA Access and Origin Access Basic to enjoy up to 10 hours of play time as part of the Play First Trial, or sign-up for Origin Access Premier to get full access on PC.
