Need For Speed is back and due to players’ feedback, and the development team, Ghost Games, responded this E3 2015 by showing off realism, but with a pure street flare. This time though the extra ingredient of visual realism was noted, and one cannot deny that Ghost Games took a page out of Evolution Studio’s Driveclub on it.

Need For Speed this go-round has no subtitles, as the franchise is being rebooted to go back to its true essence. Leanne shares, “We decided to call it Need For Speed because we looked after the last twenty years of Need For Speeds and we wanted to bring the best parts out.”

To add to the gameplay an added special touch to the reboot of the series, there are  five unique ways to play the game which includes including Speed, Style, Build, Crew and Outlaw. In addition, EA’s very own authentic car culture club, the Speedhunters plays a pivotal role in helping with the development, adding real car racing culture to the game play and in-depth customization.

    To those that don’t know, this could very well be the last NFS game. There is an internal notice in EA that they are adamant about ending the series if this re-reboot does sell well.

      So they find it best to throw in FORCED online components and expect to go over well like every other FORCED online game has before it?
