NEED FOR SPEED

EDGE - - HYPE - Pub/dev EA (Ghost Games) For­mat PC, PS4, Xbox One Ori­gin Swe­den Re­lease Nov 3 ( NA), 5 ( EU)

We thought re­boots were about trim­ming the fat and fo­cus­ing on what a se­ries does best, but clearly EA and Ghost have a dif­fer­ent in­ter­pre­ta­tion. Need For Speed sheds the cus­tom­ary sub­ti­tle and gains a branch­ing, first­per­son, live-ac­tion nar­ra­tive. Some much-trum­peted game­play ‘in­no­va­tions’ boil down to a cen­tral XP sys­tem pow­ered by speed, style, car mods, crew per­for­mance and up­set­ting the cops. Noth­ing new there, then. It looks fan­tas­tic, at least.
