Need for Speed Unbound, the latest in EA’s long-running racing series, is out today, on next-gen consoles and PC.
The developer is Criterion Games, the erstwhile master of the Burnout series. The last Need for Speed game that Criterion made was Need for Speed Rivals, in 2013.
If you haven’t seen much of Need for Speed Unbound, that is because it doesn’t really feel as if the game has been marketing very much. But it has a striking art style – a kind of cel-shaded brightness, scrawled with graffiti-like flourishes of animation.
It is set in the open world of Lakeshore, and has you screeching through a story of upstart street racers, featuring rapper A$AP Rocky. Kieran Crimmins, creative director at Criterion, said:
“With self-expression at the heart of Need for Speed Unbound, we’re pulling out all of the stops. From unique car builds and customization options, to high-end fashion collaborations, to a soundtrack packed with global artists – we’re giving our racers a chance to see themselves represented on the streets of Lakeshore as they race against others in this new visually enhanced and stylistic universe.”
Need for Speed Unbound is out today for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
