At Gamescom 2019, Electronic Arts revealed the first gameplay trailer for Need for Speed: Heat. However, it appears that a demo version of this new racing game is available to the press. As such, IGN has shared a video showing 7 minutes of gameplay footage from it.
This video will give you an idea of what you can expect from this new Need for Speed game. We strongly suggest watching it as you’ll get a glimpse at the game’s control/car handling mechanics. This is something that will interest a lot of racing fans (hint: it’s arcade as it should be). Moreover, we can take a look at the environmental destructibility that is mainly due to the Frostbite Engine.
By day, players compete in the Speedhunters Showdown, a sanctioned competition where they earn Bank to customise and upgrade their garage of high-performance cars. At night, players risk it all to build their Rep in underground races. In these events, a rogue police task force roams the streets, ready to take racers down and swipe all their earnings.
Ghost Games has stated that the game will not have any loot boxes or microtransactions. However, there will be a time-save pack, which will show all collectables on the map.
Need for Speed: Heat will come out on November 8th.
Here is another video, showing 17 minutes of gameplay footage!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
