NFS Unbound is the next installment in the popular series of arcade racing games. It was developed by Criterion Games (known for Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered and Burnout Paradise Remastered). It was released by Electronic Arts.


The story presented in NFS Unbound focuses on the fate of two friends. One day they are separated as a result of a robbery at a garage and the theft of a valuable car located there. Our hero undertakes an attempt to recover the vehicle, and in order to achieve this, he must take part in a series of street races.


Need for Speed Unbound resemble what we know from previous installments of the series. All the fun focuses on illegal street racing. Of course, everything has been constructed to look as impressive as possible.

There were also police chases - the greater our success in racing, the greater the interest of law enforcement officers. This time, this aspect has been expanded, and the game features a variety of chase units; avoiding getting caught requires adjusting to the type of vehicles chasing us.

The developers have improved the physical engine, which translates into a better driving experience than in previous installments of the series. The focus here is on a level of complexity similar to what we might associate with simulators. The sensitivity of the controls has also been increased, which translates into better control over the cars.

In Need for Speed Unbound, we have to pay to participate in subsequent races. So if you lose, you will lose the invested cash. In addition, it is possible to place bets.

List of cars

NFS Unbound offers more than 150 car models from manufacturers such as Porsche, Aston Martin, Lamborghini and Ford. At the same time, the title lacks vehicles from Toyota and Audi. The full list of vehicles available at launch can be found here.


NFS Unbound features unique graphics that interweave realistic and cartoonish elements inspired by street art.
