Need For Speed: Rivals Revealed, Another Cross-Generation Title
It's never long between Need for Speed installments.
EA has announced a new entry, and this one will be available for both current and next-gen systems. It's called Need for Speed: Rivals and it'll utilize the fancy new Frostbite 3 engine. In development at Ghost Games, the game is designed to "capture the adrenaline and intensity of the street's ultimate rivalry between cops and racers, in a stunning open road environment." Wonder just how "open"...
The game has a launch date of November 19 for the current consoles, and we'll get a release date for the next-gen iteration soon. We will adopt the role of either a racer or cop and each side has its own challenges and rewards. If you're a racer, your goal is to become the most infamous driver on the road; if you're a cop...well, your goal is to stop the racer. The latter will rank up by evading the police; as cops, you'll work together in a team pursuit. You'll unlock new vehicles and other gears as time goes on, too, and that's always cool.
Rivals will also welcome the return of Ferrari after a long absence. Furthermore, an innovative new feature called AllDrive will let players "seamlessly transition between single-player and multiplayer mode." Unsurprisingly, the Autolog will also return, and we like the sound of 11 upgrade-able gadgets like turbos, jammers and EMPs. This sounds like a bad-ass mix of Hot Pursuit and Most Wanted, doesn't it?
