Need for Speed Rivals (November 19th, 2013)
Need for Speed: Rivals is in the works at Ghost Games, EA’s newest studio, in partnership with Criterion Games.
It uses Frostbite 3 and combines the “intensity of the street’s ultimate rivalry between cops and racers,” in an open road environment where players can choose between being a police officer or a racer.
As a racer, the goal is to “become infamous for taking risks” and capturing your shenanigans on video. The more cops players evade, the more Speedpoints they will collect, enabling them to unlock new cars and items. Earn more Speedpoints and become a “more valuable target to the cops”.
Police officer players work together as part of a team to nab the racers, and will earn prominence by doing so, causing them to rise within the ranks of the Police Force.
The Ferrari returns to the franchise with Rivals, for the first time in seven years, and players will be able to get behind the wheel of the F12 Berlinetta.
It also contains AllDrive, which allows gamers to “seamlessly transition from playing alone, to playing with friends, destroying the line between single player and multiplayer.”
Here’s a list of features:
The game is out on current generation platforms on November 19 and will also be released on Xbox One and PS4 later this year.
