Need For Speed: Rivals Brings Playable Cops To The Party


Share this Post

When Need For Speed: Rivals launches, it will be another step with EA commitment to crossing over the single and multiplayer experiences with their AllDrive feature that promises "seamless" integration between the two styles of gameplay. Whatever your opinion on a game that essentially forces you to play multiplayer, there is reason for excitement concerning the next Need For Speed release: the opportunity to play an undercover cop who can pursue racing punks to your heart's content. To help celebrate their appearance at Gamescom 2013, a trailer was released focusing on the law enforcement side of the street racing life.

It should be noted that there's not much gameplay to see. Instead, a cinematic trailer that supposed to tweak your imagination was the offering:

According to reports, players will be able to choose from three different kinds of playing styles if they choose the law enforcement side, including patrol officers, enforcers, and undercover cops. The trailer focuses on the undercover aspect, and it looks like players will be able to drive exotic cars allowing them to perhaps enter, and then disrupt races as they try to catch drivers who have no respect for traffic laws. The game is schedule to launch on November 19, and it will be available for all both console generations (PS3 and 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One) as well as the PC environment. There is, of course, a pre-order bonus if you are so inclined.

This includes the following:

  • Exclusive access to the Nissan GT-R Black Edition
  • Early access to advanced pursuit technology
  • A custom livery
  • Is the Nissan a good enough reason to get in early?
