EA have today announced Need For Speed: Rivals for current and next-gen platforms, including the PS4. The game, co-developed by Criterion and Ghost Games, will run on Frostbite 3 and will be released this November for current gen platforms, and on next-gen platforms when they become available. The game will be an open world title, with players playing as either a cop or racer.
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. Players gain Speedpoints for evading the police, which will unlock new cars and items, but you will lose all your Speedpoints if you’re busted, apparently. As the police, players work together to pursue the street racers, earning promotions in the ranks for each bust, which in turn unlocks new cars and tech.
