One of the Best-Selling Video Game Franchises of All Time Returns with Underground Races, Police Chases, Customized Rides and More Authentic Car Culture

Ghost Games™, a studio of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) has announced Need for Speed™ Heat is available worldwide on the PlayStation®4, Xbox One and Origin™ for PC. Need for Speed Heat sends players to Palm City. It is a brand-new open world where street racers choose their way to play; earn Bank in sanctioned events by day, or risk it all to build Rep in underground races by night. Big risks could mean big rewards, it’s up to the player to make the call.

Ride or Die

“At its core Need for Speed is about custom rides, adrenaline-filled races with cops and without them and showcasing the latest in-car customization. With Need for Speed Heat we’ve dialed those core tenants up and dropped them into a vibrant new world,” said Riley Cooper, Creative Director at Ghost Games. “Heat offers two firsts for the series including a unique day and night cycle that offers players two ways to play. It also has customizable avatars so they can express themselves beyond just their wheels.”

Electrifying

In Need for Speed Heat, players can drive the hybrid-electric performance, Polestar 1, for the first time ever, as well as some of the most iconic car brands in the world, see the full list here. The game also offers the deepest customization the series has ever seen, including a range of options for both performance and style. This gives players the tools they need to create their perfect high-octane, anything-goes, dream car. Additionally, as another first for the franchise, Need for Speed Heat features character customization. Giving players 12 preset avatars to choose from to further adapt their own style. Clothing and accessories from PUMA, Life’s a Beach, End Clothing and other well-known brands, ensure that players will be going full throttle with the latest fashion when they hit the streets of Palm City.

I’m Going to Miami

Need for Speed Heat also introduces players to a bright, new urban environment that becomes a dangerous neon playground once the sunsets. Taking inspiration from Miami – a vibrant city with a multicultural blend of music, cool street art, and stunning night lights – Palm City is a street-racer’s paradise. Day and night are at the core of progression in Need for Speed Heat. During the day, players race in a series of sanctioned events to build the Bank. At night, they must engage in illicit racing to establish themselves and reap extra Rep. When the sun goes down things heat up, but the rewards are there for the fearless.

EA Access* and Origin Access* Basic subscribers can enjoy up to 10 hours of playtime, along with 10% off the purchase of the full game. Origin Access Premier Subscribers get all the benefits of Basic on top of full access to the game on PC for as long as they are subscribed.
