Yesterday, EA and Ghost Games confirmed the first few details for the upcoming Need For Speed Heat. The game is to be set in Palm City, two sides split by day and night. During the day, the player is a respectable racer, who takes part in sponsored events to earn cash. But as soon as night falls, the player takes part in the darker sides of street racing.
As well as racing, players have to contend with the police. During the night, the police will hunt the player down, ending the night if you get caught. Need For Speed Heat will feature plenty of customisation options, which did give the impression that loot boxes were prevalent. However, Ghost Games took to Reddit and confirmed that the game will not feature them.
Need For Speed Heat is scheduled for release on November 8th for PS4, Xbox One, and for PC. Subscribers to Origin’s Access Premier will be able to play from November 5th.
