A NEW Need for Speed game has been announced and will be released in less than two months.
Officially titled Need For Speed: Unbound, rumors have been circulating about the upcoming game since a new NFS game is said to be in development in 2019.
While it seems you’ve seen the upcoming game before, this is the first time it’s been officially revealed.
The trailer was originally scheduled to drop at 4pm UK time, but the company released it two hours early.
It will be released on December 2nd for PlayStation 5 and will not be released on last generation platforms.
It is not known why it took EA so long to reveal Need for Speed: Unbound despite numerous leaks and rumors about the game.
EA’s biggest game of the year, FIFA 23, was released last week, so the company has been very focused on marketing the game so far.
It is developed by Criterion Games, the same studio that developed Need for Speed: Heat.
Unbound is set in Lake Shore City, a fictional version of Chicago.
The promotional graphic shows two different drivers and could mean that the game includes character customization. The characters also have a cel shading art style.
There’s also a variety of cars to see, with custom art on the outside, similar to the customizable designs in Forza Horizon 5.
In the game you can meet with other players and show off your custom designs.
Unbound is heavily inspired by graffiti art and hip-hop aesthetics, and the soundtrack was created by rapper A$AP Rocky.
As detailed in the trailer: “Race the time, outsmart the cops, and compete in weekly qualifiers to reach The Grand, Lakeshore’s ultimate street racing challenge.
“Pack your garage with precision-tuned, bespoke vehicles and light up the streets with your style, exclusive fits and a vibrant global soundtrack pounding in every corner of the world.”
It was also announced that those who pre-order Unbound will be able to gain access to the game three days early on November 29th.
