Need for Speed Heat looks to capture some of the craziness of the earlier titles

Hesitantly excited.

The Need for Speed series has definitely had its ups and downs, but personally, I have spent quite a few hours playing the series – especially some of the older titles like the Underground series (which still has one of the best soundtracks of all time).

Now, there is a new Need for Speed title coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Called Need for Speed Heat, the new title is giving some serious Miami vibes and I will always support a gratuitous amount of neon in my video games.

Check out the reveal trailer for Need for Speed Heat

Sadly, there is very little (if any) gameplay in the reveal trailer, but that is on the way, with a gameplay reveal coming during Gamescom next week.

The new NFS title will be available on November 5 on Origin Access Premier, with the game releasing on November 8 for the rest of us. Personally, I’m excited about the title, but if we’re being honest, it’s doubtful it will capture the feel of some of the highlights of the series. Especially if there are a lot of items, cars, and more that can only be unlocked with real money.

I have no proof that it will be like that, but c’mon, it’s 2019, at this point, it is expected.

From the press release, it looks like they are at least kinda acknowledging that, with Riley Cooper, Creative Director at Ghost Games noting, “Our fans have been clear that they want more cars, more customization, and more challenges, and we’re tuning up on every aspect. From your character’s style to your car’s performance and your driving style, we’re fuelling everyone’s creativity with this new game.”
