Need for Speed Unbound Burns Rubber Dec 2

Race against time, outsmart the cops, and take on weekly qualifiers to reach The Grand in freshly revealed Need for Speed Unbound, launching Dec 2, 2022. Electronic Arts has bought back Criterion Games for this latest entry in the Need for Speed franchise, with an all-new art style mixed with realistic vehicles for more high-speed mayhem. It’s been two years since the latest game, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered, so I am super eager to jump behind the wheel in this new NFS game. We will get behind the wheel of some iconic rides in a single player campaign that will challenge you to beat the competition, earn cash and make your mark on the street racing scene.

In early December we will step into the world of Lakeshore City where a robbery at a family auto-shop tears two friends apart and marks the rise from rookie to top racer on a journey to win the ultimate street race and reclaim the priceless car that was stolen. To get to the top, risks must be taken. Choose how and when to put it all on the line, pulling huge drifts on the street, outdriving the cops, or placing side bets with your own earnings against rival racers.

There is multiplayer coming in Need for Speed Unbound. Players will take their racing to the next level and turn friends into rivals in multiplayer. Connect with the online street racing community in underground Meetups across Lakeshore and discover the best routes through the city in Freeroam. Keep your look fresh and get noticed with hundreds of cosmetic items including fits from some of the world’s pioneering fashion innovators and endless car customization options including brand-new Driving Effects that will help you light up the streets of Lakeshore.

to look the part, you gotta sound the part too. Bump a genre-defying soundtrack of trailblazing artists from the world of hip-hop led by A$AP Rocky and AWGE, including the world premiere of A$AP Rocky’s brand-new track “Sh*ttin’ Me,” also featured in the reveal trailer. Grab the keys to your new car and pre-order Need for Speed Unbound to earn some exclusive pre-order only content, including an epic driving effects pack, decals, license plate, banner artwork, stickers and $150,000 Bank in your wallet when you first join multiplayer.
