Server Issue Fixed for Newer Xbox 360 Need for Speed: Rivals Players

By Kelly Packard, 3 months ago
Players have been chasing a fix for a server issue in the Xbox 360 version of Need for Speed: Rivals, and they've finally gotten it.

The problem, which was much-discussed in our TrueAchievements forums, was that users who played Rivals for the first time past a certain date in 2017 were unable to access the game's online service. User Domanator316 posted a video in EA's forums showing that they were able to log in on an account that had already played Rivals before something went wrong in 2017, but not on an account that hadn't played the game before that time frame.


"We have done some digging on our end and tweaked some nuts and bolts," responded an EA community manager.

Whatever nuts and bolts EA tweaked look to have been the right ones, as users have confirmed they are now able to access Rivals' online after previously not being able to.

We've got the full list of Need for Speed Rivals (Xbox 360) achievements - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
