Ghost Games Provides Need for Speed 2017 Confirmation – Won’t Always be Online
Fans of the Need for Speed franchise may have felt left out when the game was rebooted in 2016 and they discovered that play was only online. While it was suggested that a new title would come in 2017, there was no concrete information regarding a release and details have been absent. Now, EA and Ghost Games have come forward with a Need for Speed 2017 confirmation and there may be much to celebrate.
While major details are a bit slim, fans will get a full dose of information leading up to E3, which takes place next month. The Need for Speed 2017 confirmation, given in a press release, did have a few nuggets that will tide players over until then. For instance, customization and police pursuits will be a part of the game.
Rest assured that we’re committed to customization having a home within the Need for Speed series. It’s not going away and it will play as strong a role as ever as we move forward into the next game and beyond.”
Ghost Games also stated that they would be focusing on opening the world to players. Off-road driving is looking to be included in the game, with more for players to do, making the Need for Speed 2017 confirmation that much sweeter. Here is what the developer had to say about these changes:
Whether you’re checking out your freshly customized ride or smoking the competition in an event up in the canyons, you’re going to want a world that not only looks beautiful, but offers you the space in which to do the things you want. We’re dialing up the action and allowing you to tear up the tarmac, and dirt, to your heart’s content.”
The next game in the Need for Speed franchise will also be deviating from its reboot predecessor. The 2017 release will have an offline mode that players can enjoy as well. This move would welcome back to the fold many players who either couldn’t play online, or simply didn’t want to.
When release day rolls around for the next Need for Speed, you will be able to play through a single player experience completely offline. Before you ask, and we know you will, this does mean you will be able to pause the game.”
Beyond all of this, there is no official title, platform availability, or release date as of yet. The Need for Speed 2017 confirmation is just that, confirmed for some time this year. With a little over a month left until E3, fans won’t be waiting long to hear more. Don’t Feed the Gamers will be on the scene at the convention, which means you’ll find everything you need right here.
