Need For Speed Unbound - Speed Race Gameplay

I'm looking forward to this game, Heat was a step in the right direction for NFS. NFS Heat Unite (arcade physics) made the handling a lot better. This looks like Heat 2.0, maybe with better handling.

P.S. how can someone think the artist name "ASAP Rocky" be cool? It sound like something a 5 year old comes up with for a superhero name...

I dont get why people seem so down on this game. We rarely get arcade racing games and this seems like a very pretty, fun looking, one of those. It doesnt need to change the world or revolutionize the genre, it just needs to be a fun ass arcadey open world racing game, just like heat was.
 
Looks like the same tired gameplay we've gotten for 25+ years with a new coat of paint.

I hope that we can disable this wings and any other art shit during the race. Gets old as soon as the race starts
 
When I saw the first trailers for this, I found it to be overstimulating and distracting, especially as the effects were used in several cars on the road. But, seeing it limited to just your car is much better. I think it looks pretty dope, and quite distinct/unique. Feels like good ol' NFS again - very familiar. And no other racer captures the feeling of speed so well.

I'm interested.

Is Jessica Rabbit in..? Because if so, I'm in too - I think. Good to hear it's possible to turn off the car effects..

There are plenty of videos of gameplay for the game already, here is one:
I'm sold, looks awesome. Thank god the cartoon effects can be switched off.

Most important question is, will it be a racing game or a story game where you are a car like payback

I'm really not the target audience for this. Looks dreadful with those Matutano chips effects, teen voice-acting out of some MTV Awards, yehaw, wowwww, boom!, and the trap music and anime visuals... I used to be such a fan of Need for Speed... I'm old...

Yeah not feeling it, just looks like more NFS.
Should be fun for people who are already into the franchise but I'm seeing nothing to bring in a new audience outside of cartoony visual effects.

Haven't checked too many videos. Can anyone tell me how the car upgrades are done?

Is it the way Heat did it? Or is it something terrible like how Payback did it?

That music of slow jazz drums is fucking awful, it fits perfectly with the shitty art style though.

This thing isn't going to sell as well as they want it to.

I've never played a Need for Speed game and I'm dying for a modern entertaining arcade racer. Is it open world and/or in other ways similar to the likes of Burnout Paradise?

I am terrified of Microsoft and am always concerned about them.
I’m sure you’re being sarcastic but the game is running native 4k 60fps on current gen. This was obviously being made with last gen in mind. 1080 30 would have been doable.
So why are there no last gen versions??

Performance musst be trash like I said. Or do you think EA will voluntarily give up the money?🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

Honestly, that's the kind of DLC I could completely get behind: soundtracks. 80's metal. EDM. Grime. Rock and roll. I'd be down for that at the right price.
Same. I miss the Most Wanted 2005 OST. It had something for everyone and it was amazing. Maybe I'm getting old or out of touch.

Where the 60fps footage from the leaks? I see the menus running at 60, but gameplay is at 30. Other vids are uploaded at 30fps.

Seen a lot of gameplay over the weekend and it was actually quite good, apart from the person playing it.
EA Play trial starts in 30-60 minutes, so I'm gonna try that first.

Is it just straight up racing? Are there stupid missions/side quests etc? And is it set in an open world where one wrong turn gets you completely lost?

I like the look of it and want an arcade racer but its a NFS game and I steer well clear of them (hot pursuit is the only one I like).

The chav/wigger (are you allowed to say that these days?) centric characters and sound track is off putting too.

I'm trying to play the game but Kaspersky keeps detecting the main .exe as a trojan. I'll have to try adding the game folder to the exceptions list.



Edit: Yeah, adding the exception did the trick. Hopefully EA didn't sneak in a cryptominer.
