Shake your arms, it looks like the new Need For Speed game launching in November will be a little different.
According to Jeff Grubb of VentureBeat, who spoke on the Giant Bombs Grubbsnax program (thanks to VGC for the transcript): “It will be photorealistic, but in addition there will be elements of anime.”
Basically, this seems to mean that the game will adopt a new artistic style, with Grubb adding: “You know, when you see a car commercial or something like that and the car turns around, but then the calls come from animated drawings and other things come flying? That’s the kind of aesthetic you seem to be looking for. “
New anime from Need for Speed to Go
Of course, Criterion has chosen a typical anime scene for this new game, with the infamous Japanese city of Chicago, Illinois, as the impression of the fictional city of Lake Shore.
According to Grubb: “Criterion that it feels like a real city, even though it is a fictional version of a city”.
While not everything in the game will be new and different, with more features in previous Need For Speed games returning triumphantly.
“Autolog is back to multiplayer mode, you can customize all parts of your car, it’s back,” Grubb said.
Autolog is a social network that will be introduced for the first time in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit from 2010, another Criterion game designed to facilitate competition games and rankings as much online as it is offline.
It appeared for the last time in the remastered version of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit from 2020, but before that the game had not appeared in a Need For Speed game from Need for Speed: Most Wanted in 2012.
The Need For Speed franchise has held and won between two studios, Criterion and Ghost Games, for most of the last decade, and Criterion regained control recently in February 2020 to allow a restructuring of Ghost.
The new Need For Speed game currently appears to be ready to hit the PC as well as the PS5 and Xbox One consoles in November, and rumors suggest that the PS4 and Xbox One versions will not launched.
