Today, gamers are being given the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the all-new Ford Mustang 2015. This has been possible thanks to an agreement between EA and Ford to let players of the recently released Need for Speed: Rivals virtually drive the hotly anticipated, next-generation Mustang before it hits the streets next year.
Be among the first to drive the Ford Mustang 2015 in Need For Speed: Rivals
It just has been a few days after the all-new Ford Mustang 2015 – loaded with innovative technologies and delivering world-class levels of performance – was revealed to the world, it will automatically appear in the garage of cars available to drive for everyone playing the arcade-style racing game.
“During the past five decades, Mustang has become so much more than just a car”, said Andrea Zuehlk, Ford digital marketing manager. “The feeling of freedom and independence Mustang inspires has made it popular around the world. Making it available in Need for Speed: Rivals helps us share the joy that comes from driving a Mustang to even more people”.
The Ford Mustang has made a significant impact in pop culture, including gaming; it’s been featured as a playable car in the Need for Speed video game franchise since 2005. Ford and the development team at EA had been working closely to provide them with engineering data for the New Mustang, several months before they showed it to the rest of the world. Computer design models enabled the game developers to create an accurate representation of the new Mustang before it goes on sale.
The exclusive customized Mustang “hero car” from the upcoming Need for Speed movie is also available to drive and has been playable in the game since it launched in November. Along with the new car, Need for Speed players can also chose to get behind the wheel of the Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang, which is available as a police chase vehicle.
