New Need for Speed: Rivals Trailer Highlights Optional Race Challenges

Posted on October 1, 2013 AT 12:22pm

Need for Speed: Rivals‘ latest trailer highlights the challenges available to players during chases.

Objectives for racers include getting five NOS slams, drifting 500 yards, or escaping two pursuits, while objectives for the police include take down six racers, busting three racers, or hitting three racers with pursuit tech (gadgets that allow police vehicles to unleash EMPs, shockwaves, or call in roadblocks. Completing these objectives will allow players to more quickly upgrade their vehicles.

Rivals marks the franchise’s shift from development at Criterion Games to Ghost Games (formerly EA Gothenburg). In September, Criterion creative director Alex Ward revealed that the majority of his studio were forming Ghost Games U.K., presumably to assist the Gothenburg-based Ghost Games in the development of future Need for Speed titles.

Need for Speed: Rivals races onto Windows PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 November 19 in North America and Europe. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will be available when the two next-gen consoles launch on November 15 (November 29 in Europe) and November 22 respectively.
