First news about NFS 2017May 10th 2017
So on the 9th of May, an article was dropped on needforspeed.com which gave us the first small few details regarding the upcoming title this year. They have released a teaser photo which is set in either a sunset or sunrise. Either way I think we can jump to the conclusion they will include a day and night cycle. Which in my opinion is really good as NFS 15 got quite stale as it was only night time. Yes they were aiming for more of an UG-ish vibe which, don’t get me wrong was good but as I said earlier, it got stale. Also since in the teaser picture there is no rain (YES). Sure looks good, but again; just got annoying after a while.
We also see a nicely customised Nissan 350Z with a nice bodykit and big spoiler. Yes. Our requests were answered by Ghost and they added it in this new title. Because we all know how much this car was asked for to be added into the last NFS game which for some weird reason didn’t but now it’s here. This Nissan 350Z hopefully means we will get a bigger carlist with the same amount if not more customisation than in the previous game as even though they said customisation will make up for the smaller carlist. On some cars, it just didn’t. And they do commit to customisation as they said: “Rest assured that we’re committed to customization having a home within the Need for Speed series.” This is great news if you ask me.
Now let’s see pursuits. In NFS`15 there wasn’t much depth to it. Crown Vics were chasing that got more aggressive but no heat system or anything. But they dropped amazing BIG news about pursuits. RHINOS ARE BACK! Yes. Rhinos are back! All the raging moments to the very last millisecond dodge to avoid them; all that excitement is back from Most Wanted and Carbon. This also should suggest a heat system like in MW and Carbon as it would be quite unfair to get Rhinos almost as soon as you start a pursuit. And it will surely be interesting to see how Ghost implement this.
Another great news. So far only good news which just gets me more and more hyped about NFS 2017. So the other great news is that they confirmed that their new title this year will be OFFLINE. They said: “You will be able to play through a single player experience completely offline” They also mention that you can pause the game hence it will be offline.
In conclusion they have only been listening to us and giving us what we were asking for. Also should mention the 2nd of June which is under the big MOTEL VACANCY sign. This could mean many things. Most likely it is a teaser trailer of some sort or a bigger reveal but it is mentioned that they will drop details going through this summer until EA PLAY which is in June.
