Need For Speed "Full Reboot" Revealed, Coming This Fall
Don't worry, it's coming back.
2014 was the first year in over a decade that the gaming community didn't see a new Need for Speed title. But a "full reboot" is being planned for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC and it should be ready to race later this year.
Developer Ghost Games confirmed as much and while they remain somewhat tight-lipped about the project, they did hand out a brief teaser trailer. We also know the project was inspired by the Underground series and it'll be an open-world game with day-night cycles. We'll also have the benefit of "deep customization" and an "immersive narrative." I reserve the right to doubt the latter but you never know.
And publisher Electronic Arts really hopes this NFS reboot hits big. Ghost Games general manager Marcus Nilsson told GameSpot that the series has flagged in recent years:
"Need for Speed, ten years ago, sold a lot more copies than it sells now. Which means we have a lot of room to move up. We have a global, known brand; it's strong. But I think we have a lot of upside for this franchise based upon getting our details and information and features in order."
Well, here's hoping! And to learn a bit more, head over to the PlayStation Blog.
