The first Need for Speed Unbound trailer is here and it certainly looks different to what you might expect. But we like it.
Developed by Criterion Games, when the debut trailer dropped, it seems like the overall response has been positive from fans. My initial impressions were that it blended elements of modern-day Need for Speed as well as the fan-favourite Underground series.
Need for Speed is back!
“Need for Speed Unbound is all about self-expression, taking risks and disrupting the status quo by just being you – through your racing style, unique car builds, fashion, music and much more,” said Kieran Crimmins, Creative Director at Criterion Games.
“We are inspired to create a truly authentic universe where players see themselves represented in the game. The visual experience of Unbound redefines expectation, with a new signature art style that brings graffiti to life, intensifies the competition, and creates adrenaline-inducing, high-speed action.”
Unbound looks stunning!
Furthermore, its new art style certainly caught our attention. Not only did the cel-shaded visuals give it a distinct identity over previous games in the series, but its pop-up graffiti presentation was wonderfully vibrant. The developers also promise the most realistic-looking cars in the franchise’s history.
Moreover, Need for Speed Unbound will feature a story campaign said to have “thrills and consequences through an immersive narrative that engages players in the city of Lakeshore as they race, collect, upgrade, and customise the world’s hottest performance cars on their way to the top of the scene.”
Furthermore, it will also feature full cross-platform multiplayer for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. Additionally, “built for a new generation”, Unbound features 4K resolution and 60FPS “for the first time in the series”.
Is Need for Speed Unbound new-gen only?
