Yesterday we learned that Need for Speed – the new installment in the popular racing games series – will be released probably in November this year. Today we have more information about this production. A Tweet was posted on the official Twitter account of the game, saying that the project will require an online connection. This solution will supposedly give us more options and a more rewarding team experience. Another post confirmed that consoles will also need the Internet connection, but this doesn’t mean that the production will be a purely multiplayer one. A solo option will also be available – online as well. It was also revealed that the game will use dedicated servers.
According to earlier assurances of the developers from Ghost Games, Need for Speed will go back to the roots of the series, offering an immersive story, great tuning options, night racing, and much more. The production will reportedly feature five game modes (Speed, Style, Build, Crew and Outlaw), and will be set in Ventura Bay, a fully open site.
Further details will be soon announced at E3. The new Need for Speed will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
The Need for Speed series is one of the most recognizable franchises in the video game industry. The first installment debuted in 1994, and since then numerous sequels were created by various studios. Until August 2014, more than 150 million copies of all the Need for Speed games were sold.
