EA has revealed its newest racing game, setting the Need for Speed Unbound release date for December as it unveils the next iteration of the long-running series. After many rumours and much speculation, the newest game from former Burnout developer Criterion Games has been shown off in an official reveal trailer featuring American rapper A$AP Rocky, who looks to feature prominently in the game itself.
The trailer features Need for Speed’s classic underground street racing vibes, with a blend of on- and off-road racing. Set in Lakeshore City, Unbound pitches a classic rags-to-riches story, following two friends torn apart following a robbery at a family auto shop. In the trailer, we see plenty of neon-lit cars billowing coloured smoke from their wheels as their drivers screech around corners, hurtle off construction ramps, and attempt to evade the cops trying to break up nighttime tuner meets.
The Need for Speed Unbound release date is December 2. However, EA Play members can get early access to the game with a 10-hour trial beginning three days earlier on November 29, and EA Play Pro members on PC get unlimited access to the special Need for Speed Unbound ‘Palace Edition’ starting on November 29.
