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!

Surely such a powerful platform will have no trouble handling audio CDs, right?

    Where in Asia are you located? You can certainly enjoy the game without internet access, but not split-screen multiplayer.

Just curious, will this game have an actual story or will it continue the trend of just racing?

Thanks!

    The game does have two narratives, Cop Progression and Racer Progression. Progression is optional, but it does lead to unlockables.

30fps? On a next gen game? Especially a RACING game? Seriously EA get your act together.

The ONLY decent NFS game on current gen has to be Hot Pursuit, the graphics, the handling and overall quality of the game was and still is BRILLIANT.

Also instead of making constant different NFS titles why not make the one that nearly everyone actually wants? NFS Underground 3 please!

Lastly I am rather put off now that Rivals is only 30fps…I was seriously hoping for 60fps and don’t think splashing down £50+ for this game on the PS4 is going to be worth it…

What about stop beating a dead horse?

What about reviving FUN in videogames?

What about letting Criterion work on another freakin’ Burnout?!

I was wondering if the PS4 version will support the PS Move racing wheel……or how about the PS3 version while I’m at it? Thanks.

If this is going to be held to anywhere near the standards of the last need for speed this looks like it will be a great game. 53.5 hours to go and I can hardly wait!

Will It support 2 players on the same screen racing against each other?

Why no wheel support?

Having a wheel (Logitech G-27), I have enjoyed many of the NFS games.
But now… I’m not sure that I could enjoy a racing game on a pad again.

Limiting the game play to JUST a pad seems like a backwards step in game play and player immersion, let alone enjoyment.

This seems like a patch you could do to fix this.

Please contemplate this request to support a wheel for NFS:Rivals.

Does anybody know if Drive Club will support a wheel?

+ Cheytou on November 14th, 2013 at 9:04 am said:

BTW… Having NFS:MW really blow my mind, I WAS excited about NFS:R, but with no wheel support… I’m not as excited about it.

What an absolute travesty! No steering wheel support in a dedicated driving game. I am so disappointed in developers decision to not support my wheel. If I could return this game and get a refund I would. Using a steering wheel enhances the game experience exponentially.

To developers: please reconsider and add wheel support ASAP through a patch!
