Cross the Line as a Cop or Racer today on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC
Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) today announced that the highly anticipated, high-octane racing game Need for Speed™ Rivals is now available on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Set in a world with a variety of stunning environments and effects powered by the advanced Frostbite™ 3 engine, Need for Speed Rivals is injecting new innovation into the racing genre with AllDrive, a revolutionary feature that destroys the line between single player, co-op and multiplayer. AllDrive will forever change how racing games are played with friends seamlessly connecting gamers to one world where their single-player races and chases can collide at any time.
Winner of the official Game Critics Award for “Best Racing Game” at E3 2013, Need for Speed Rivals is “impressive” according to IGN.com. So far, Need for Speed Rivals has received review scores of 100 from USGamer.net, 90 from Machinima, 85 from AusGamers, 85 from PlayStation Lifestyle.
“At Ghost Games we were given the keys to the Need for Speed franchise to bring new energy into the genre and we’re doing that with AllDrive,” said Marcus Nilsson, Executive Producer, Ghost Games. “Thanks to AllDrive, players can create their own organized chaos, going from driving alone to being in an all-out chase with their friends at an instant. These unexpected moments create the ultimate edge-of-your-seat experience, and this is the direction our team wants to take racing games in the next generation.”
Need for Speed Rivals glorifies the street’s ultimate rivalry, daring gamers to cross the line as either a cop or racer to gain the upper hand by any means necessary.
Playing as either side of the law comes with its own distinct career experiences, each with their own set of high-stakes challenges, rewards, pursuit tech and cars. But this time, the stakes are at its highest level with an all-new scoring system where gamers put their Speed Points on the line and risk losing it all if busted.
Need for Speed Rivals will be in-stores November 22 in South Africa for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system from Microsoft and PC via Origin™.
