Bring along the adrenaline! Ghost Games today announced Need for Speed Heat, the latest in the racing game franchise which has been known over the years. It is being referred to as the ultimate street racer versus cop fantasy!
In a press release, EA said “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.”
Riley Cooper, Creative Director at Ghost Games said the game will be coming with new options unlike older games in the franchise. He said “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.”
Need for Speed Heat will be available to play November 8 and it will be launching on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Those with EA Access and Origin Access Basic will get first access to the game with up to 10 hours of gameplay on November 5
