A new Need for Speed game is in development and will arrive by the end of the year, EA and Ghost Games officially announced in a blog post.
They’re keeping information on the up-coming release close to their chests, but have revealed a few details on the new game before we hear more at EA Play in June.
Of course, the last game in the NFS series was the reboot back in 2015. Both EA and Ghost Games are building on that foundation and have taken into account the fan feedback from it too.
The biggest detail to come from the announcement is the fact that offline mode will return – the constantly-online element of the previous game was a major drawback. Now, there’ll be the option for gamers to play offline and single-player, with the ability to pause the action and not have to put up with being constantly online.
Ghost also emphasised that customisation will “play as strong a role as ever” in the new NFS, while police chases will be a feature too.
The announcement also said players will have the freedom to drive around an open world with “the space in which to do the things you want”, and also hinted at off-road driving.
So, we’ll have a new Need for Speed game this year and we’ll get more information next month. Are you excited? Let us know in the comments!
