Electronic Arts has released the first (short) gameplay of Need for Speed ​​Unbound

This short video has therefore allowed fans to relive the thrill of the race and the impetus of the chase in that of Unbound, a title that we remember being developed by Criterion Games where players will have to speed through the streets of the city, as they pass the cops and prove they have what it takes to win Lakeshore’s latest road racing challenge The Grand.

Need for Speed Unbound also features a new visual style, which blends elements of street art with the most realistic cars in the franchise’s history.

In addition, the game also features a single player campaign, which according to Electronic Arts will be able to offer a compelling narrative, which involves players in the city of Lakeshore as they compete, collect, upgrade and customize the hottest high-performance cars in the world, to reach the top of the scene.

EA also specified how Need for Speed Unbound is built for the new generation of technology and will feature 4K resolution at 60 FPS for the first time in the series.

Below you will find the main features of Need for Speed Ubound:

  • The world is every player’s canvas: Graffiti comes to life in a new art style as players travel through the city equipped with an all-new high-energy visual and sound effects kit, such as Burst Nitrous, which rewards players with a style-based boost that reflects their own way of driving.
  • Running through the streets: The more players run, the more they accumulate heat. Choose to outrun or outsmart the cops using new escape mechanics to take control of the chase and earn big rewards or even more serious consequences if you get arrested.
