Need for Speed HEAT has finally been announced after a weird absence from EA’s EA Play 2019.
Just two years after the release of 2017’s Need for Speed Payback, HEAT already looks like a step up for fans of the instant-classic Underground subseries. Straight away, HEAT’s trailer squeals of Underground’s 90s-cool street racing. You may be asking, “Is that a good thing?” YES IT IS!
Developed by Need for Speed 2015 and Need for Speed Payback developer Ghost Games, Need for Speed HEAT aims to be the customisable NFS game we’ve wanted for years.
“Our fans have been clear that they want more cars, more customization, and more challenges, and we’re tuning up on every aspect,” said Creative Director Riley Cooper. “From your character’s style to your car’s performance and your driving style, we’re fuelling everyone’s creativity with this new game.”
Launching on November 8th, HEAT of course has the typical pre-order incentives for enthusiasts. Standard pre-orders come with a K.S Edition styled Mitsubishi Evolution X. Deluxe Edition owners will get the K.S Edition styled BMW i8 Coupe, Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe, Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport vehicles and a healthy lump of premium currency and in-game clothing.
