Need for Speed Rivals Coming to PS4 on November 15th

The wait for a next-gen games is getting unbearable! And our team at Ghost Games has been pushing themselves to be a part of PlayStation’s big launch day. We’re excited to announce today that Need for Speed Rivals will be a launch title for PS4 in North America on November 15th.

We’re stoked to be the first racing game on PS4, and believe we’re setting a new bar for driving gameplay and visuals. PS4, coupled with the Frostbite 3 engine, will give players unparalleled next-gen gaming — epic locations and vistas, stunning time of day and weather changes, and super high fidelity cars. But we’re not just about looks — what’s under the hood counts, too! With Rivals, we’re introducing AllDrive, a new feature which allows players to choose seamlessly between single player, co-op, or multiplayer, and a completely new way for you to play Need for Speed.
Share Your AllDrive Moments on PS4

Even as we play Need for Speed Rivals, we can never be sure what’ll happen next. Just recently in a Pursuit race, one of the racers dropped a stun mine at the bottom of a jump — another car landed right on top, wiped out, spun out of control, finally landing on the cop that was pursuing him. It’s that chaos and variety enabled by AllDrive that makes Rivals so unpredictable and fun. There’s no way you can script something like that, and when it happens, being able to have players show off those moments through the Share button is something we’re really excited about.

Continue the Race with Remote Play

This feature will work out of the box, allowing players to put down their DualShock 4, grab their Vita, and continue their game for those moments when you have to give up the TV. This is a great new feature, and when you also consider the drop-in functionality of Overwatch mode, we’re giving you more ways to enjoy and play Need for Speed.
See You on the Road

All in all, our team is incredibly proud of what we’re delivering on PS4. As a new studio, this is our first game, and we couldn’t be more excited to have Need for Speed Rivals be there at launch. Whether you choose to be a cop or a racer, we hope to see you out on the open roads of Redview County!

If you have any questions or comments about Need for Speed Rivals, let us know in the comments and we’ll do our best to answer them. Feel free to also drop by our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter.

Ghost Games has people from Criterion and DICE, so hopefully they are good sauce.

I can't find one screen shot of an in-car/dash/hood view. If the view is only outside and behind the car, then I may have to pass on this one.

Oh man, that would suck. I guess I'll hold off to find out. I would be pretty pissed if I bought it and there weren't any immersive driving modes, just that follow cam kiddie crap.

A lot of arcadey racers are bailing on the cockpit cams.

It doesn't even have to be cockpit cam, at least hood cam or bumper cam, dash cam. Most trailers do show follow cam though to show off the car models. It probably has other camera modes.

NFS:HP and NFS:MW both had hood cam options, so I'd be shocked if this one didn't.

Well, no cockpit cam kills this as a B1G1 free option. I will miss Forza this generation.

Have you confirmed that there is no cockpit, hood, or bumper cam?

A pure arcade racer doesn't really need a cockpit cam imo. Need For Speed is pure arcade style racing.

Having said that, they might as well have the option for it, so it's pretty lame that they don't.



I really want to rent this game, here's hoping RedBox gets PS4 games right away.

I found this:

And with Rivals being an action racing game we provide you with a first person and third person view, but not from the cockpit.

That's good news. At least the game has a first person cam. A hood view would have been a better option and is still fitting with the arcade style of the game. They could patch it at some point, but it will likely never happen.

How can they call anything but cockpit cam first person view? It's AHEAD of person view if its bumper or hood cam.

1080p @ 30 FPS but honestly the game feels blazing fast. The controls are tight and responsive.
Motion blur is put to good use to amp up the sense of speed.

I'd be able to tell you if my PS4 wasn't DOA! Then again, Amazon shipped the game out late anyway.

I recieved my copy yesterday. Played for about an hour, going through the both the cop and robber tutorials then a few speedlists after that.

The good parts:
  • Driving is typical NFS, more arcadey and fun than simlike. It's a LOT of fun though, Vin Diesel and The Rock would feel right at home sliding around switchback curves and punching the nitro button on long straights. However, it's predictable, so once you get how a car drives you can really push it around the streets.
  • The graphics look great, plenty of smooth curves and shiny paint on the cars. It runs smooth as silk, at least in single player mode.
  • The world itself looks like it'll be a lot of fun to explore.
  • Audio is as good or better than any other racing game I've played. Cars RUMBLE and GROWL, nice LFE effects, and plenty of separation. The position of the cars around you is very well defined.
  • There appears to be plenty of customization options for the cars, I've already repainted and upgraded my starter Carrera. tongue.gif
  • I do like the two types of missions you can run, cops or racers. Makes for a nice way to change things up when running from the law gets boring.

The Bad:
  • If dialogue is any indication of the plot then the plot wlll be atrocious. FF6 is Shakespeare compared to this.
  • The music. Hopefully I can play my own playlist. If not the music is going away.

The I don't Know.
  • Alldrive - looks cool, haven't tried it yet.

Is it worth $60.00? I think so, I know I'll get at least that much fun out of it.

So - after playing a few more hours tonight the verdict is simple. Mash up Burnout Paradise and NFS Hot Pursuit and you get NFS Rivals. Criterion Games influence is all over this game.

Looky here!

One of the best NFS games for me in a long time. Reminds me more of Most Wanted(2005) than anything else. Quite addicting too. Small graphical issues (stutter during turning mostly) and doesn't look as crystal clear as Killzone for example. All in all, it's a great launch game.
