Do you feel the Need for Speed? Electronic Arts is certainly hoping so, as the publisher announced plans for a series “reboot” (what does that mean for a racing game?) with a freshly released trailer.
There’s a distinctly Need for Speed: Undercover (2008) vibe in this all-too-brief trailer, which, it’s worth pointing out, is culled entirely from in-game footage. The short chase sequence ends with a note that points to a bigger reveal on June 15, the same day as EA’s E3 press conference.
The Need for Speed series took some time off last year after 2013’s Need for Speed: Rivals launched alongside the then-new PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. The game was well-received, but the hiatus in 2014 gave developer Ghost Games some extra time to get the hang of building for the new hardware.
There’s no word yet on what to expect from the next Need for Speed. EA’s announcement promises a return to familiar elements of the series, including car customization and story-driven gameplay, but that’s the extent of it.
Stay tuned for more details on June 15 when EA brings its current lineup to E3 2015.
