Electronic Arts and Ghost Games have announced the next entry in the Need for Speed franchise. Need for Speed Heat will provide more fast and furious racing action with real licensed cars when it launches November 8 on PC (Origin), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Watch the new announcement trailer above.
Need for Speed Heat is set in the open world of Palm City, a street racer’s paradise. During the day, players race in the legitimate Speedhunters Showdown tournament. At night they take on more clandestine underground races, complete with rogue police offers who are happy to swipe your earnings.
Completing races earns money to purchase new high performance cars and customize all the parts and pieces.
“We’re delivering more options than ever before for players to be unique and make themselves known,” said Riley Cooper, Creative Director, 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. From your character’s style to your car’s performance and your driving style, we’re fueling everyone’s creativity with this new game.”

A deluxe edition is also available that includes exclusive character clothing, increasing earnings, and three K.S. Edition cars (BMW i8 Coupe, Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe, and Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport).
EA Access subscribers will be able to play as early as November 5 and up to 10 hours of play time with the Play First Trial.
