Amid all the great announcements done on the first day of the Gamescom event, the newest instalment in the racing series, NFS Heat that is developed by Ghost Games, was never left behind. The game is set for release on November 8th, 2019, although EA Access and Origin Access members will get to play the title from November 5.
In a bid to make players even more excited for the game, EA also announced the Need For Speed Studio app, which will allow players to customise their cars before the game’s official release, which is currently out now on iOS and Android.
With EA billing the game as the “ultimate street racer versus cop fantasy”, the team promises to bring in “expressive customization, authentic urban car culture, and an immersive narrative” in a fictional open-world setting called Palm City.
According to EA, “By day, players compete in the Speedhunters Showdown, a sanctioned competition where they earn Bank to customize and upgrade their garage of high-performance cars.
“At night, players risk it all to build their Rep in underground races where a rogue police task force roams the streets, ready to take racers down and swipe all their earnings.
“The roads, the risks, and the rides never end in this street racer where a player can roll deep with their crew, build their garage full of hot cars, and make the city their nonstop playground.”
With a racing franchise that is known for its awesome collection of cars, EA took to its blog post to also announce new sets of wheels that will be coming in including Mitsubishi Evolution X, Ferrari 488 and Nissan 350Z.
