EA have announced the next title in the Need for Speed franchise, Need for Speed: Rivals.
Need for Speed: Rivals is an action/racing game being created by EA's new development studio, Ghost Games, in partnership with Criterion Games.
Need for Speed: Rivals will be beat on the Frostbite 3 engine, capturing the adrenaline and intensity of the street's ultimate rivalry between cops and racers in a stunning open road environment. Need for Speed: Rivals will be coming to PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on November 19th 2013 with a release set at 'later this year' for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
You will be able to play as either cops or racers in Need for Speed: Rivals where each side will have its own set of challenges, rewards and consequences. Your job as a racer is to become infamous for taking risks behind the world and capturing your most intense escapes on video. The more cops you manage to evade, the more "Speed Points" you will gain, which in turn will enable you to unlock new cars and items.
As a cop it is down to you to work as a team in pursuit of racers, earning prominence and rising through the ranks with every bust that you make, unlocking more powerful cars and pursuit tech.
For the first time in 7 years, Need for Speed: Rivals will feature the Ferrari brand enabling you to get behind the wheel of some of the most luxurious and desirable sports cars.
Need for Speed: Rivals will be powered by AllDrive, an innovative new online feature which will allow friends to seamlessly drop into your game world and enter/exit races on the fly. Autolog will also be making a return as it will power the multiplayer stats and leader boards.
