Need for Speed: Heat launches on 8 November

Some of you might not know this, but Need for Speed has been around since 1994. It first showed up on a console you might also never have heard of, the Panasonic 3DO, and later got ported to PC, PS1 and SEGA Saturn. Move ahead to the current era and we’ve lost track of the all the Need for Speed games that have launched since. One thing is for sure, Need for Speed isn’t going to please everyone. Some want the Supercar Hot Pursuit action, others want the Underground formula and some also want the Most Wanted cop chase action. Well, here it finally is. Need for Speed: Heat.

Hustle by day and risk it all at night in Need for Speed™ Heat, a white-knuckle street racer, where the lines of the law fade as the sun starts to set. By day, Palm City hosts the Speedhunter Showdown, a sanctioned competition where you earn Bank to customize and upgrade your high-performance cars. At night, ramp up the intensity in illicit street races that build your reputation, getting you access to bigger races and better parts. But stay ready – cops are waiting and not all of them play fair.

Should you buy it via Origin Access Premier, you’ll get access to the game on 5 November. 


Married to a gamer and she kicks my ass at most shooters. If the game is enjoyable I'll play it, no matter the format.
