NEED FOR SPEED 2017: PAYING IT BACK

A new Need for Speed game is on the way this year, and developer Ghost Games has taken to a brief blog post to share a few more details about the open-world racer. And while the developer didn't share any groundbreaking new information, the details it did reveal indicate that it is listening to fan feedback from 2015's Need for Speed reboot.


Most importantly, Need for Speed 2017 will ditch the always online component that was maligned by fans of the previous game. That means you'll be able to play through the full single player experience without connecting to the internet. "Before you ask, and we know you will, this does mean you will be able to pause the game," Ghost Games says.

Outside of the removal of always online, the game is set to feature lots of customization:

Customization, we love it, you love it, everyone loves it. What's not to love? Rest assured that we're committed to customization having a home within the Need for Speed series. It's not going away and it will play as strong a role as ever as we move forward into the next game and beyond.

Ghost Games is promising plenty of cop chases and a world that will let you "do the things you want." What, exactly, that means is a mystery for the moment, but we're expecting to learn much more at EA Play during E3 in June.


Release date

Still now no release date has been announced, but it is expecting to release in June of this year.
