Need For Speed Heat

Need For Speed Heat has been revealed as the next game in the massively popular racing franchise, with the game’s first trailer drifting onto the web today.

“We’re delivering more options than ever before for players to be unique and make themselves known,” promises creative director Riley Cooper from Ghost Games.

Cooper continues: “Our fans have been clear that they want more cars, more customization, 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.”

This is the official synopsis for the game: “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.”
