for its racing reboot, Need for Speed
Today, the publisher/developer has revealed more information on the extent of the storyline in the game and how this impacts the gameplay. EA promises that the five different ways to play will result in an "action-packed overlapping story", with more specifics given below for each of the play style options:Speed – Pedal to the metal, high speeds, maximum adrenaline rush. Keep your nerve and never lift off the gas, the fearless always push the limits.
Style – Expression through driving, sliding the car into a corner sideways with ultimate precision. For some, style is all that matters.
Build – Take your car to the extreme through visual and performance modification. The constant need to improve and personalize. Craftsmen build, searching for perfection.
Crew – Ride together with your Crew and never hit the streets alone. Put your faith in others and the skill of close proximity chaos.
Outlaw – Messing with and escaping from the cops. Push the limits and live life on the edge as you crave the thrill of the chase.
The new details are accompanied by several slick screenshots that highlight different vehicles.
