The countdown has ended and the new Need for Speed game that was being teased has officially been announced. Ghost Games has revealed the new game to be Need for Speed Heat and they are calling it “the ultimate street racer versus cop fantasy.”
Need for Speed Heat takes place in Palm City, where by day racers can compete in a sanctioned competition known as the Speedhunters Showdown.

From your character’s style to your car’s performance and your driving style, we’re fuelling everyone’s creativity with this new game.”
