Well, I don’t know about you guys, but I’m pretty stoked on the new Need For Speed reboot coming out this November 6th. It’s going back to the good days of Underground and Underground 2, by letting us have complete control over car customization, and a more “street racing-esque” environment.
The live action cinematics are something which I welcome wholly, as it’s something that EA has proven that they can pull-off, and well. Personally, I like it when devs go “above and beyond” and in my opinion, EA has done that with this iteration’s cut scenes.
The driving seems nice and smooth, but almost too “drifty” as you can see when the demonstrator takes the car over the bridge and sways side-to-side. I don’t know if it’s going to be a big issue, but it looks like something you might have to get used to.
One of, if not the best part, about the new Need For Speed reboot is the incredible customization options. Again, taking us back to the days of Underground 1 & 2, EA decided that it was time to let us make ridiculous tuner cars, finally. Being able to swap out basically any cosmetic part is going to lead to some really great looking cars, you can count on that.
All-in-all, judging by this gameplay footage, the new NFS looks like a great way for EA to bring the Need For Speed series back to life; by going back to the roots of a couple of the best in the series, Underground 1 & 2.
