Need for Speed Rivals floors it to PC, Xbox One, PS4 'later this year', and current-gen consoles Nov. 19


Joystiq writes:

'Recently renamed developer Ghost Games and racing fellow racing fanatics at Criterion Games have banded together for Need for Speed Rivals: a new game that represents the franchise's first drift into the next-gen console world (which is not to be confused with the 2005 handheld spinoff).

Not coming to Wii U

There won't, however, be a Wii U version of Need for Speed Rivals, and Nilsson is sticking to the company line that the Frostbite engine doesn't play nice with Nintendo's console. "Yeah, Frostbite is not really set up for Wii U. I don't have all the information, so it wouldn't be right for me to speak about it. Frostbite 3 is a really capable engine, it's scalable and it gives us a big advantage on the next generation to support the Xbox One and the PS4, but it's not being developed on the Wii U."

I'll hereby lament the mental decadence of Need For Speed and how predictable this all is... but I'll probably play it anyway.

I've enjoyed the last few games in the series and will be 99% sure I'll be picking this up as I have a few friends I play it with and we always have a blast.

This might be interesting. I quite enjoyed the previous game.

It seems to be a joint effort this time around. I'm interested because I prefer arcade racing. Simulators are a too realistic for me to enjoy. And they're using Frostbite 3 so the graphics will be great.

True - I have NFS: Most Wanted (the Criterion reboot) which is also Frostbite-driven, and despite my low-end hardware, and especially the GPU, it doesn't look bad at all. Frostbite 2 and 3 (along with the SC2 engine and, surprisingly, CryEngine 3) are plenty of data showing that games can look good without requiring you to break your wallet on hardware.

Most Wanted is actually Criterions own engine, not Frostbite. The Run was Frostbite 2, Most Wanted was Chameleon.

And what about The Run looked bad? Again, pretty much nothing (same hardware).

And thanks for the heads-up on Most Wanted - still, Frostbite 2 and 3 both look darn good even when not running full-tilt on high-end hardware (which is all the more surprising, considering that the Battlefield series was pretty much designed to be hardware-melters - with the same darn engines).
