After a number of leaks, rumors and much speculation, as well as being referred to while not formally announced by EA, now they have formally revealed Need for Speed Heat. Developed by Ghost Games, Need for Speed Heat releases this November on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
What is Need for Speed Heat?
Need for Speed Heat emphasizes street racing that you take on the city’s elite racers at night and hustle during the day. You won’t just be up against other racers, however – the city’s rogue police force is also out to shut down your fun and stop you from joining the street racing elite. During the day you race in the Palm City Speedhunter Showdown, an official and sanctioned competition where you earn the money to customize and upgrade your cool cars. At night, illicit street races are available and you build your reputation in them as you drive through the city at a breakneck pace, gaining access to bigger races and better parts with your reputation.
