In-Game Anime A$AP Rocky : As EA released the trailer for Need for Speed Unbound early, the new title has officially been announced. The game will be released on December 2 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC, as earlier leaks suggested. Sorry previous-gen console owners.
The trailer states, “Race against time, outsmart the cops, and compete in weekly qualifying events to reach The Grand, Lakeshore’s ultimate street racing challenge.”. The street will be lit up with your style, exclusive fits, and a vibrant global soundtrack that bumps in every corner of the globe as you pack your garage with precision-tuned, custom rides.”
There is an in-game anime-styled A$AP Rocky and some furious street racing action in the trailer, along with other anime-styled characters, cop cars on the chase, harking back to the original Hot Pursuit games. Below you will find a trailer:
Throughout recent weeks, leaks have been steadily revealing that Unbound would have an anime-inspired art direction, as well as details about the game’s platform and launch date. It is possible that EA took notice of the leaks and decided to release the trailer a couple of hours early.
It appears that Unbound will follow in the neon-lit and street racing vibes of previous Need for Speed titles Underground and its sequel. The original A$AP Rocky song featured in the trailer is entitled “Shittin Me.”
EA and Criterion will reveal further details on Need for Speed Unbound at 8am PT / 11am ET / 4pm BST, so keep an eye on us here at TheGamer where we will have all the details.
