Need For Speed: Rivals announced

A new Need For Speed title called Need For Speed: Rivals has been announced to be currently in development.

Rivals is being developed by EA’s new studio Ghost Games, along with previous Need For Speed developers Criterion Games. The game will run on Frostbite 3.0, and will introduce a new feature called AllDrive to the game, which will purportedly allow for seamless transitions between singleplayer and multiplayer racing. According to EA, Ferrari have also made their way back to the Need For Speed franchise after a seven year hiatus, giving players the ability to drive cars such as the F12 Berlinetta.

Those are the stand-out features of the game revealed by EA. Others include improvements to various returning gameplay elements such as Autolog. The game will once again feature the ability to play as either a cop or racer in an open world, and will include various singleplayer and multiplayer challenges for each team.

Need For Speed: Rivals is set for release on PC and current-gen systems on November 19th, while a next-gen release will come sometime after that in 2013. More information on the game will be revealed at this year’s E3.
