Need for Speed Rivals announced
by John Callaham

Electronic Arts keeps releasing at least one new Need For Speed game every year and 2013 will be no exception. The company revealed this week that the latest game in the arcade racing series will be called Need for Speed Rivals.

EA's press release announced that the game is being developed by a new in-house team, Ghost Games, and will use the Frostbite 3 engine. Need For Speed Rivals will allow players to become either a racer or a police officer, each with their own set of matches and challenges. Successful drivers can unlock new cars and new abilities as they move up in the ranks.

One big new feature is something called AllDrive, which EA claims will allow players to seamlessly transition from single player to multiplayer matches. It states, "Players will have to keep one eye on their rearview mirror as friends will be able to enter and exit races on-the-fly, creating a world where no two events will ever be the same."

Need For Speed Rivals will have a ton of real world cars to drive, including vehicles from Ferrari for the first time in a Need For Speed game in seven years. It's due for release on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC platforms on November 19th, and will also be released for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles later this year.

The trailer doesn't show much but looks and sounds promising ! I missed Ferraris in NFS.

Will have to see gameplay, but mostly, Arcade racing isn't my type of thing anymore. Let's hope this might change that.
