Need for Speed Rivals coming this Fall
Ferrari returns to the Need for Speed franchise on Frostbite 3 engine
Electronic Arts has announced Need for Speed Rivals, to be released this Fall.
Rivals is being developed by EA’s newest studio, Ghost Games, in partnership with the expert racing team at Criterion Games. Built on the Frostbite 3 engine, gamers play as either a cop or racer, where each side of the law has its own set of high stakes challenges, rewards and consequences. As a racer, the goal is to become infamous for taking risks behind the wheel and capturing your most intense escapes on video for the world to see. As a cop, players work together as part of a team in pursuit of racers, earning prominence and rising in the ranks of the Police Force with every bust.
Rivals also marks the return of Ferrari to the Need for Speed franchise. For the first time in seven years, gamers can get behind the wheel of some of the most luxurious automobiles on the planet, including the F12berlinetta.
The game will also debut AllDrive, a new online feature that allows gamers to transition from playing alone to playing with friends, eliminating the line between single player and multiplayer as friends will be able to enter and exit races on-the-fly.
Need for Speed Rivals is coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on November 19, 2013 and will also be released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year.
