Need for Speed Returns to PS4 This Fall

It’s great to be back here on PlayStation.Blog to talk to you about Need for Speed — and in just a few weeks’ time at E3 you’ll get to witness the full unveiling, but until then we just want to touch base on a few things, so let’s clear the air.

Need for Speed

While we’ve been busy making the game we’ve also been reading, watching, and listening to you, our NFS Community. The feedback you’ve provided across every medium possible has urged us forward, and directed us towards our goals.

To know that there’s such a passionate set of gamers out there is one of the best feelings you can have as a developer, so thank you for that.

Need for SpeedNeed for Speed

Every day someone proudly proclaims that we simply must have customization in the next Need for Speed game, so that’s exactly what you’ll have. When Need for Speed launches later this year you’ll be able to fully customize a car, in the process turning it into a truly unique resident of your garage.

We’ve been working really closely with Speedhunters, our very own community who have helped us deliver a Need for Speed that is grounded in authentic car culture by diving into the world of past, present, and emergent trends of the urban car scene. Need for Speed will unleash a passion for cars and speed when it launches this fall!

Need for Speed

With more than 20 years of history in its rear view mirror, we’re bringing Need for Speed back with a reboot that delivers on what Need for Speed stands for — rich customization, authentic urban car culture, a nocturnal open world, and an immersive narrative that drives your Need for Speed experience.

We can’t wait to see you at E3, where among other things you’ll also be able to see customization in action for the first time. You won’t want to miss it!

  • WHY NOT JUST CALL IT NEED FOR SPEED UNDERGROUND 3??!

    Anyway, I am sold!!!

  • Wait, is the full title actually just ‘Need For Speed’? I thought they were just holding back announcing the full title since this is just a teaser. You take 1 year off and suddenly the whole franchise needs a reboot? Just call it Underground 3, geez.

  • death_nation100

    What happened to Riad Rash EA

  • death_nation100

    Road Rash

  • Whoa… I like this.

  • ICE_KOLD_KILLA92

    Yes! Finally! This sounds like Underground! Urban car culture, night time open world, rich customization, what fans asked for, reboot?! Hell yes! After SO many years, seems like they finally gave in AND took an extra year to do it! How weird of EA. So happy! E3 is shaping to be EPIC! I wish I lived in the US so I could at least go see Sony’s Press Conference in theater :/

  • Hopefully it’s like the old ones not like the new ones with the bull**** preset customization options for example “need for speed rivals” bring back the old customization options like “need for speed carbon”

  • This is perfect! Open world night racing and customisation like the Underground series. Please add multiple race types also like drift, drag and mountain racing. Also steering wheel support is a must. There have been way to many exotic car racing simulations with lack of Japanese cars, so this is a change i have been waiting for since Need For Speed Carbon

  • What a total waste of the Porsche brand.

  • Gods above I would REALLY LOVE SOME BODY KITS
    NEED FOR SPEED WILL ROCK THE WORLD WITH THIS ONE

  • Gran Turismo 7, where are you?

  • Yes!!!

    I’ve been playing NFS from those days when there was one road to race on until now. Glad to see that you guys and gals are still hard at work. Thanks for listening to the fans.

  • I don’t care about a narrative… realizing The Crew had a badly implemented story is what killed my interest in that game. Why can’t anyone just give me another Burnout Paradise? I just want a huge open area to drive around in and complete challenges. No forced storyline races in a car I wasn’t just using, no cops chasing me and making me lose points when they bust me, no long load times being forced to go into a building and back out just to bank points because of forced online connectivity. Just give me a fun area to drive around in… is that really so hard? Until you guys can manage something that simple, no money from me.

  • These graphics look exceptionally good! At this early stage, are they even real?  ̄\_(ツ)_/ ̄

  • Can’t wait.

  • I hope it will have tuning from NFS SHIFT that was the best NFS game I have played so far.

  • Poopookakabumbum

    And because they killed online passes, we’ll only get about 40% of the actual game on the disc, with the rest sold separately as DLC.

    Thanks, but no thanks.

    I’ll take a game that doesn’t screw over consumers.

  • I loved Hot Pursuit, and Most Wanted 2012. I enjoyed Rivals, but I LOATHE the Need for Speed mobile app & its integration.

    Please get rid of gimmicks like mobile app integration. I’d like my money to go towards the game, not towards how EA can further try to integrate into my life outside of games.

  • @59 – Because they are extremely ugly and overrated? I agree.

  • HAHA_OWNED_DUDE

    No thanks. Not even confident with NFS series anymore. Boring uninteresting DLC everywhere. Social features just bloated in. NFS doesn’t deserve a reboot name until it meets it’s predecessor’s qualities.

  • Good a new Need for Speed might have to get me a Racer.

  • Bring back Burnout and EA will have my money again.

  • Still prefer the arcade-style NFS set by Criteron games!

  • What I want to know is Open world is fine but is it going to have a great story line like most wanted did and if so it cant be short that would suck

  • Rom dom dom.

  • I have been waiting years for the next need for speed underground to hit the shelves! I have spent endless hours playing nfsu 2 that I still play today!. Thank you ea for rebooting nfsu. You guys will make a lot of gamers happy and will probably break a record for amount of copies sold, good job and can’t wait till this fall will be preordering this game

  • After the last game? No thanks. I’ll wait for the new Criterion game.

  • I would love to see drag racing return. Not sprints, the short 10 second races from Underground 1 and ProStreet

  • This is a must buy on the list…..will you all bring back split screen racing also since you are bringing back a more detailed customization which was seen in the underground series??

  • securuty

  • This look to nice I hope the game live up to the hype. By that i meant the way it look like in the way its being presented I don’t wan’t another lie.

  • Which consoles will this game come out for?

  • Wow so glad that you can customize your car
    again.
