EA has just released the first trailer for Need for Speed Unbound, the next installment of the famous racing game saga. This episode, which promises to be innovative in more ways than one, is expected on PS5, Xbox Series X / S and PC from December 2, 2022.
It was a question of time before discovering this new opus. It must be said that EA had accidentally revealed the existence of this episode on its website this Wednesday, October 5. Back to the wall, the American publisher has therefore chosen to distribute the first official trailer for the new Need For Speed this Thursday, October 6, 2022.
baptized Need For Speed Unboundthis title will offer a rather original graphic approach, between realism and cartoonish effects that are reminiscent of Spider-Man New Generation, the excellent animated film released in 2018.
We find an atmosphere quite close to that of the Pro Street and UnderGround episodes, since the game will be brought to challenge the police in illegal races and to customize his car in every aspect. Moreover, we find rapper A$AP Rocky as the big name of the soundtrack of this episode.
Need for Speed Unbound launches December 2, 2022
“Start at the bottom of the ladder to reach the top in Need for Speed Unbound. In this race against time, challenge the police and compete in weekly qualifiers to get to the Grand, Lakeshore’s ultimate street race. Enhance your garage with ultra-custom cars, and shine with your unique style, exclusive clothes and a powerful soundtrack”, EA announcement.
In addition, our colleagues from the specialized site IGN tell us that the game will use the latest version of the Frosbite engine, which can be found in particular on Battlefield 2042, to offer 4K resolution and a constant 60 FPS.
Regarding the campaign, it will be fully playable solo. The progression will not be really linear since it will be possible to challenge certain protagonists to a duel story mode as you see fit. Players will also be able to stake money before each race to increase their winnings if they win.
The first trailer ends by revealing the release date: Need for Speed Unbound is expected on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S from December 2, 2022. Pre-orders are already open, and buyers will be able to play to the title in early access three days before launch.
