During the Gamescom opening ceremony, EA gave Need for Speed fans their first glimpse of gameplay for Need for Speed: Heat. Placed back into an open world setting, NFS: Heat is set in Palm City, a place where escaping the cops is just as important as winning street races.
In the daytime, players will participate in legal races in the Speed Hunters Showdown, where winning money will help players customize and improve on their vehicles. At night players will participate in illegal street races, gaining respect among the other racers but dealing with aggressive and more coordinated cops.
Need for Speed: Heat launches November 8th for Steam, Xbox, and PlayStation 4.
