Need for Speed Rivals Coming to PS4 on November 15th

Need for Speed Rivals, 03

The wait for a next-gen games is getting unbearable! And our team at Ghost Games has been pushing themselves to be a part of PlayStation’s big launch day. We’re excited to announce today that Need for Speed Rivals will be a launch title for PS4 in North America on November 15th.

We’re stoked to be the first racing game on PS4, and believe we’re setting a new bar for driving gameplay and visuals. PS4, coupled with the Frostbite 3 engine, will give players unparalleled next-gen gaming — epic locations and vistas, stunning time of day and weather changes, and super high fidelity cars. But we’re not just about looks — what’s under the hood counts, too! With Rivals, we’re introducing AllDrive, a new feature which allows players to choose seamlessly between single player, co-op, or multiplayer, and a completely new way for you to play Need for Speed.

Share Your AllDrive Moments on PS4

Even as we play Need for Speed Rivals, we can never be sure what’ll happen next. Just recently in a Pursuit race, one of the racers dropped a stun mine at the bottom of a jump — another car landed right on top, wiped out, spun out of control, finally landing on the cop that was pursuing him. It’s that chaos and variety enabled by AllDrive that makes Rivals so unpredictable and fun. There’s no way you can script something like that, and when it happens, being able to have players show off those moments through the Share button is something we’re really excited about.

Continue the Race with Remote Play

This feature will work out of the box, allowing players to put down their DualShock 4, grab their Vita, and continue their game for those moments when you have to give up the TV. This is a great new feature, and when you also consider the drop-in functionality of Overwatch mode, we’re giving you more ways to enjoy and play Need for Speed.

See You on the Road

All in all, our team is incredibly proud of what we’re delivering on PS4. As a new studio, this is our first game, and we couldn’t be more excited to have Need for Speed Rivals be there at launch. Whether you choose to be a cop or a racer, we hope to see you out on the open roads of Redview County!

Does this have wheel support? Like for a Logitech G27?

Awesome! Can’t wait!!! Knack, Killzone, NFS, BF4, Madden 25, Lego Marvel and Skylanders Swap Force… Resogun & Contrast…

Nice!!! a car game at launch this is good news

AllDrive sounds awesome for casually doing multiplayer content. However, one thing that really worries me is another NFS title without a way to quickly and easily do a multiplayer race with another friend having AI fill out the other spots.

Will me and a friend be able to put AllDrive in “friends only” mode, load in as two street racers, and regularly engage in actual races? Or will we be stuck with random challenges that aren’t fun to do together taking up most of our time again?

Thanks! Super excited that this became a day 1 game!

    I should add, as long as your AllDrive is set to Friends or Private, who ever that includes will be able to jump in and do Events of your choosing with you as long as you are online.

    Also, thanks for the in depth questions!

    Rivals will feature AllDrive mode– seamless integration of multiplayer and open-world gameplay experiences. As I mentioned above, within AllDrive mode, you can control your privacy settings to allow gameplay with certain groups: Public (everyone), Friends (includes friends of friends), Private (invite only), or Single-Player.

I have been waiting for confirmation of remote play for ths game FOR AGES! this, battlefield 4, cod:ghosts, I know they said all games were playable remotely but i was kind of skeptical. the ONLY remote play announcement i want now is lego mavel superheroes as i love the free roam aspect.


+ shortmaneighty2 on November 4th, 2013 at 10:19 am said:

@12 it is running at a “locked” 30fps due to the ALLdrive feature so mp and sp can be seemless. it is native 1080p also


+ XBL-WIESIL on November 4th, 2013 at 10:20 am said:

NFS rivals is 1080P 30fps on all nextgen consoles

    This is correct, thanks!


+ boxmyth on November 4th, 2013 at 10:42 am said:

Maybe I overlooked this detail, but does Rivals have an open-world like Most Wanted (which I loved) or is it more of a list of races?


+ DavidHewett on November 4th, 2013 at 10:43 am said:

Nice…but I wish a PS Vita version would have been made. I would buy both versions if that were so. Poor PS Vita ):

Great…. BUT WILL IT SUPPORT WHEELS? Fanatec? Logitech? Thrustmaster? No wheel support=nobuy for me.

YEAAAAAAAA! I am so hyped about this game! I was disappointed to hear I would have had to wait until the xbox one release date to get this game. Now it’s actually a confirmed launch release for ps4 and I’m beyond grateful! I thought I would have to buy Shadow Fall just to have something to play. Thanks again EA for your hardwork in making NFS Rivals accessible at launch for the ps4!

+ Xanzar on November 4th, 2013 at 1:07 pm said:

One question; are there talks of a psvita variant of the game(because not everyone will have access to a ps4), and if so will it be possible to sync progress across the two titles(ps4/psvita variants)?

    + Jessica Damerst on November 4th, 2013 at 2:14 pm said:

    Currently, there are no plans for a PS Vita variant of the game, but (as mentioned) Remote play will be supported for those who do have a PS4.


+ phinnv8 on November 4th, 2013 at 11:23 am said:

This is a racing game how could it only designed to be 30fps?
