Ghost Games, an Electronic Arts studio, today announced the next installment in the Need for Speed franchise, Heat. Touted as the ultimate street racer versus cop fantasy, the game deepens and expands everything Need for Speed fans love: expressive customization, authentic urban car culture, and an immersive narrative that pulls you into the game. Check out the trailer here:
Need for Speed Heat sends fans to Palm City, a brand-new open world where street racers have gathered to make their names known. By day, players compete in the Speedhunters Showdown, a sanctioned competition where they earn Bank to customize and upgrade their garage of high-performance cars. At night, players risk it all to build their Rep in underground races where a rogue police task force roams the streets, ready to take racers down and swipe all their earnings. The roads, the risks, and the rides never end in this street racer where a player can roll deep with their crew, build their garage full of hot cars, and make the city their nonstop playground.
Riley Cooper, Creative Director at Ghost Games said:
We’re delivering more options than ever before for players to be unique and make themselves known. Our fans have been clear that they want more cars, more customization, and more challenges, and we’re tuning up on every aspect. From your character’s style to your car’s performance and your driving style, we’re fueling everyone’s creativity with this new game.

Pre-ordering the Deluxe Edition adds three K.S Edition styled cars (BMW i8 Coupe, Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe, Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport), gives access to exclusive deluxe edition character clothing, and increased earnings of in-game currencies Bank and Rep.
