The popular racing franchise ‘Need For Speed’ gets a reboot. Ghost Games, one of EA’s studios revealed that they will re-introduce the game but with the functions that NFS is known for since NFS: Underground days- ‘deep customization, authentic urban car culture, a nocturnal open world, and an immersive narrative that pulls you through the game.’
As of now, only a teaser is shown. But a trailer will be shown on June 15th, 2015. The game will be available for PC via Origin, PlayStation 4 and XBox One. The game is expected to be released in Fall 2015. The Swedish studio also revealed that the game will be fueled by EA’s own car culture community ‘Speedhunters’. From this collaboration, NFS would be getting research data and development needed for the games to provide high level of detail and real-world authenticity.
It is also been indicated that it will include cars from the past, present and cars from the current urban car scene.
Marcus Nilsson, Executive Producer at Ghost Games said,“Need for Speed is one of the most iconic names in gaming, and we’re returning it to greatness in this reboot. Pulling on our 20 years of history, and then taking a year out from releasing a game, we are making the game we’ve always wanted to. We’re listening to the fans and delivering an experience that will capture their imagination and unleash their passion for cars and speed.”
