When Need for Speed 2017 launches, players will be able to enjoy the game offline. This means you'll be able to play single player without logging on, and you won't be booted off if the servers go down or your internet shuts off. The last we knew, we were definitely getting an NFS game before April 2018.
Auto customisation will play "as strong a role as ever", and it sounds like the cops vs racers dynamic will be alive and well in this one too.
Next, they talk about the police, and the satisfying nature of a police chases in Need for Speed games. The 2015 Need For Speed took place entirely at night.
"Rest assured that we're committed to customization having a home within the Need for Speed series", the blog reads. However, it is very probable that this Need for Speed game will be available to play on Microsoft's upcoming Project Scorpio. It looks like developers Ghost Games took most of the criticism levelled at that game to heart, because it sounds like what players hated about that game has been addressed in this one. Not to mention cops are back and will chase you.
Currently under development at Ghost Games, the next installment of the Need for Speed saga is now delivering additional information about its content and ambitions. There will be cops to run away from, and in-game events, and of course it will all be very pretty and flexible: "A world that not only looks attractive, but offers you the space in which to do the things you want". "We're building the world, but what you do in it is the aspect that excites us most".
