The new Gameplay Trailer for Need for Speed Heat is here.


The trailer introduces us to Palm City. It expounds upon some of the features we already know about, such as the Speedhunter Showdowns, which you can earn money from to upgrade your car. Night is when you build your Rep. Players will compete in "illicit street races", and "the more you win, the more your heat will rise". But "cops are on another level at night", and increasing your heat will increase the level to which they'll hunt you. As confirmed earlier, the Speedcards will not feature in this game. Players use the money from the Speedhunter Showdowns during the day, and use their Rep to unlock upgrades. The trailer shows off the extensive customisation options for both the cars and the player's avatar. Cars can also be upgraded through a new Need for Speed Heat Studio app, which will also apparently have weekly car drops. garage goes into more detail on the features we already know about, and shows off its customisation options.

Need for Speed Heat definitely looks worth the wait. The game will release on 8th November. What do you think? Let us know in the comments!

We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Need for Speed Heat achievements.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
