Since its huge shift into the new age with Need For Speed: Underground, the Need For Speed franchise has gone through a wealth of changes. The different games have leapt from style to style, highlighting various strengths and weaknesses in the racing game genre. Most Wanted brought back high-speed police chases. ProStreet tried and failed to bring heightened realism to the franchise. Hot Pursuit in 2010 felt like a return to series’ roots. And The Run focused on the narrative. The 2015 Need for Speed is a reboot that attempts to marry all of these concepts while bringing the franchise fully into the “perpetually connected” current gen.
The new Need for Speed isn’t coming out till November 3, but Xbox One players with EA Access can play the trial version starting today. The trial gives you unlimited access for 10 hours, so you can play as much as you want during that window. Any progress you make during that time will stay with you if you decide to purchase the full game. Read More
