Need for Speed Unbound was officially announced. The next series of the most famous game races will arrive on PC (Steam, Epic Games Store, Origin), PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S on December 2, 2022.
The game is developed by the British studio Criterion Games, known for the games in the Burnout series, including Burnout Paradise (2008); Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010); Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012); Need for Speed Rivals (2013).
One of the main features of Need for Speed Unbound, which will be the 25th game in the series, is the combination of modern graphics and street graffiti and comic-style effects superimposed on the image. It looks really interesting, but does not allow to evaluate the overall graphic quality of the game. But the authors promise that the cars in the game will be more realistic than in the entire history of the series.
Of course, we are offered to compete with the elite of Lakeshore County street racing and make our way from the bottom to the top. As usual.
Other familiar elements of the series will appear in Need for Speed Unbound – chases with cops and full customization of cars and characters. Car list in the game right now consists of 144 cars and there is nothing extremely unusual there, and Forza Horizon 5 has at least 4 times more cars.
Well, shall we trust EA again? Well, you can’t make the game worse than Need for Speed Heat, right?
