Need For Speed Heat Gameplay, Customization Details Revealed (VIDEO)
Gamescom is currently in full swing and the event is providing a bevy of announcements from all around the industry. Recently unveiled driving game Need for Speed Heat was one of the many present at the showcase, a new trailer showing off flashy gameplay and a look at the finer customization options the car-centric title has to offer.
As seen in the new footage below, NFS Heat players engage in racing the streets of Palm City, earning as much money as possible and tricking out vehicles (as well as drivers themselves) to their heart’s content. Separated by a lively day and underground-style night cycle, players are tasked with building rep and escaping the cops to become the most wanted of the street racing scene. Also, trees appear to be destructible this time around, showing how far the racing series has come since the impassable foliage of yesteryear.
Following the game’s recent announcement, it was revealed that Need for Speed Heat would surprisingly have an absence of loot boxes–a stark step back from publisher Electronic Arts’ noted love affair with microtransactions. However, that doesn’t appear to be the only compromise EA has struck as of late, the company seemingly reversing opinions about bringing more games to the Nintendo Switch.
Need for Speed Heat releases for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 8th.
