Gamers hold your horses because Need for Speed is back after a two-year-long hiatus with a brand new racing series. Need for Speed published by Electronic Arts and developed by Ghost Gamers is one of the most popular racing series. Their first and second games gained them popularity but, when Need for Speed: Most Wanted came out it broke new grounds. After that, it was a downward spiral for this racing series.
Before EA announced NFS Heat release dates, leaked reports by a German website called Gamerware, stated that Electronic Arts are ready to release the new Need for Speed game and it has been priced at 67.99 Euros, a rather steep price for a racing game.
Need for Speed Heat will be launched on November 8th, 2019 for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One.
According to a press release Need for Speed Heat takes place in Palm City, where street racers gather to make their names known in the streets. To earn cash, upgrade and customize your rides in the game, you will need to compete in Speedhunters Showdowns. The game will not be complete without rogue cops patrolling the streets at night looking for racers. NFS Heat description on the EA’s official website reads as “Hustle by day, risk it all at night”.
Benjamin Walke who is the Global Community Lead confirmed that the upcoming racing game series will include post-launch paid DLC as car packs and a time-save pack, which will allow all collectibles to be visible on the map but unfortunately loot boxes will not be included; according to his replies to a few Reddit users.
Need for Speed Heat is available for pre-order on their website. The game is available in two forms: a Standard Edition and a Deluxe Edition. The gamers who have an Origin Access Basic (Origin Access Premier on PC) and EA Access will get ten hours of game time beginning on November 5th, 2019, three days before the official launch.
