‘Need for Speed Heat’ Official Trailer Is Up

Developed by Ghost Games, Need for Speed Heat is the latest in EA’s racing series. It is set to launch by November 8th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Origin. The game takes place in Palm City, where racers can compete in two primary forms of races. The legally sanctioned races take place during the day, and earn you cash to customize your car. Then illegal races take place at night, hounded by the cops in an effort to gain reputation, itself another form of currency. According to the press release:
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 customization, and more challenges, and we’re tuning up on every aspect.
