Ghost Games and Electronic Arts have today announced Need For Speed Heat and alongside this announcement they have also given a release date of November 8th, 2019. Described as the ultimate street racer vs cop fantasy game, NFS Heat will feature expressive customization, urban car culture and an immersive story.
Need For Speed Heat takes place in the new open-world of Palm City. In Palm City racers meet up to create a name for themselves on the street racing scene. During the day racers take part in the city’s Speedhunters Showdown where they can earn money to upgrade their rides, while at night time they take part in underground races where their biggest challenge is a rogue Police Unit looking to take them down and take all of their hard-earned cash.
“We’re delivering more options than ever before for players to be unique and make themselves known,” said Riley Cooper, Creative Director at Ghost Games. “Our fans have been clear that they want more cars, more customisation, 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.”
Fans who the pre-order the Standard Edition of the game will get a K.S Edition styled Mitsubishi Evolution X. Fans who pre-order the Deluxe Edition will receive three K.S styled cars (BMW i8 Coupe, Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe, Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport), exclusive character clothing, and increased earnings of in-game currencies. Finally, anyone who pre-orders the game from within Need For Speed Payback on any format will get a 10% discount as a loyalty reward.
