Features

AllDrive: Quick Races

Beat your friends anytime, anywhere. Now you can create your own races in AllDrive and invite everyone in your Hangout session to join. Select a destination, send an invite to other players on the server, and be the first across the finish line.

All Car Level Caps Bumped to 399

We tested out Eddie's Skyline last time, and now every ride can become a beautiful beast. With this patch, all cars can reach a max level of 399, up from 299. This is one of our most requested changes, and we can't wait to see the superb builds you create.

Car Pack

Grab these three cars in a fresh paid DLC car pack:

Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio
Try your luck in a gambler's paradise with this sleek ride. Its distinct Italian design sends a message when it rolls up to the starting line: you can't beat class.

Chevrolet Colorado ZR2
This off-roader is ready to tear up the streets and the sands of Fortune Valley. With a beefed up engine, you'll leave the competition in a cloud of dust!

Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR
A ride this burly leaves an impression on and off-road. Those looks aren't just for show—it looks and drives like a beast.

AllDrive: Chat Wheel

We've seen all the creative ways you try to communicate in AllDrive and thought we'd make your options a little prettier. Now you can tell everyone how you really feel with the brand-new Chat Wheel. Select an emote and it will appear above your car for other racers to see, or as an indicator on a friend’s screen if they’re not looking at your ride.

Speedlist Collision Paused at Race Start

Nothing ruins a good Speedlist run like crashing at the starting line. Now, collision detection will be suspended for the first 10 seconds of Speedlist races, so you can break away from the pack before the carnage starts.

Fresh Abandoned Cars: All 10 Street League Boss Vehicles

Show everyone you’re the boss when you collect the cars of every street league leader, plus some iconic Need for Speed rides. Based on your feedback we'll be dropping one car per week into the deserted parts of Fortune Valley, so keep your eyes peeled!

Toggle UI On and Off

Want an even more immersive experience without all the maps and stats in your face? Toggle all UI on and off whenever you like. You can practically feel the digital wind in your hair.

Vanity Items
Cop Car Sirens


Make your friends feel the heat with four different cop car vanity horns. It pairs perfectly with . . .

Multicolor Underglow

We're introducing a huge variety of multicolor Underglow with different rarity levels – become a physical and visual hazard on the roadway, and look good doing it. Combine the sirens and red-and-blue Underglow, then launch into a high speed chase.
