Full Patch Notes
With this Living Game Update players will now be able to experience Need for Speed Multiplayer in a brand new way in SpeedLists, and replay the best of the story events with a much harder twist in Prestige.

SpeedLists

Test your skills versus other players in custom made tournaments to become the Speedlist World Champion.

  • There are different types of tournaments so choose the one that suits you: Speed, Style or Mixed.
  • Use the time between Speedlists to tune your car and get the winning edge.
  • The higher you finish in each event, the more SpeedPoints you’ll rack up.
  • Join a Speedlist at any moment and you will race the next event available in the tournament.

Prestige

  • Are you ready to try some of the best events from the story but in HARD MODE?
  • Prestige offers a collection of tougher Speed, Style, Build, Crew and Outlaw events.
  • Once you’ve completed Story mode you can expect a call from some old friends to let you know about this new challenge.
  • Turn on Prestige from your phone to toggle between regular and Prestige events.
  • This time winning isn’t everything. You’ll have to beat a series of increasingly tough target scores to earn Gold in each event.

Activities

  • Drift or Speed? Choose your style and compete with your friends for the best scores in these short skill challenges.
