Need for Speed Heat isn’t accessible to the general public just yet, but gameplay from the latest racer has been draining on the net. Thanks to EA’s Under the Hood upgrades, we know a great deal about the game already, but nothing quite substitutes for viewing gameplay with your own two eyes.

The majority of the NFS Fanbase is remaining quietly optimistic for the latest release in the 25-year-old gaming franchise, especially after the disappointment of 2017’s Payback. However, there have been a lot of positive omens for the racing franchise’s latest installment, but what do these ancient walkthrough and story mode snippets show when it comes to what to expect next month?  Need for Speed Heating is the most recent in a long line of fast-paced and exciting racing games: the sixteenth to be exact.

Need For Speed: Heat will also give players the chance to dress their personality in exclusive new game from Life’s A Beach, designed to fit right in with the game’s visual style. More than just a game, Need For Speed: Heat is as much about design and art because it’s about the gameplay. Specifically, it is about giving players the opportunity to put their stamp on the game, to set themselves apart as individuals by customizing their personality and their whips, all of which are reflected in the PUMA Hi OCTN x NFS sneaker.

Several of the cars featured in Need For Speed: Heat could be seen from the blue-lit area: a McLaren P1, a Lamborghini Aventador, a vintage Ferrari Testarossa, a Dodge Charger and a customized Porsche 991 GT 2RS had all been brought in to give players a tangible taste of what they can get up to in the game. All 12 of the cars they brought in are available to drive and customize from the new game.

The game itself is the franchise’s most eye-wateringly beautiful yet; set in’80s Miami (or Palm City, as they call it), the usual adrenaline-fueled madness is set against the background of fluttering palm trees, pearly white beaches and the era of excess   the ‘Heat’ of the name adding another subtle allusion to the age.

The game’s story can be zipped through in around 10 hours, but after the credits roll, you’ll still have plenty of events to handle, side activities to complete, and cars to earn. Vehicle customization isn’t terribly complex, as enhancing your ride’s performance is a simple matter of updating components from Stock, to Guru, to Elite, and so forth, although there are a few parts that will change your handling, allowing you to, say, change a drift machine into an off-road specialist. And If you’re all about your ride’s appearances, Heat admittedly has a solid livery editor. Multiplayer is fairly robust, letting you join a server with up to 15 other players which you can invite to take part in events or time trials, though, once more, local split-screen isn’t an option. Overall, this one has lots of gas in the tank.

Need for Speed Heat – Handling

It is impossible to say for certain the way the game feels before you try it out, especially when it comes to something as subjective as what managing can be, but the signs look great up to now.

THE HEAT IS ON: Run out of cops or lose your earning
The NFS series is an arcade racer, something which the handling model has represented since you’re able to pull off huge drifts around corners and still be fast, something which would be impossible in real life.

Last month, Ghost Games said:”We have exposed more of the core handling system to permit players to construct and modify their cars in more detail. This will allow a car to have an asymmetric and’non-optimal’ (but fun to push ) handling setup.

This also enables players to tune their cars away from the more balanced inventory handling, which proficient players might find too simple an ‘arcade’, towards a more realistic grasp managing or drift handling depending on what you prefer.
