Need for Speed introduces Five Ways to Play set in a world twice the size of Rivals

Speed, Style, Build, Crew, and Outlaw. Combine all five to create that perfect Need for Speed moment; driving insanely fast, sliding through a corner in your customized ride alongside your friends, whilst being chased by the cops. The roads are there for the taking and every inch of Ventura Bay is yours to own in this urban playground where the streets only come to life at night.

Set in a world that is roughly twice the size of Need for Speed Rivals you’ll discover a rich open world environment that never sleeps and is packed full of life. From the tightly packed streets of downtown, where you seek out that perfect donut spot, to the sweeping valley roads where high-speed and long drifts are the norm. Race through the industrial district with your crew in tow or seek the thrill of the chase within police hotspots.

The game will be released on November 3rd for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. We will bring you any new information on Need for Speed as soon as it becomes available.
