Need for Speed fans only have to wait for two months before they go up against the hip-hop trailblazer A$AP Rocky in the upcoming racing game. Need For Speed Unbound launches on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, December 2.

“Race against time, outsmart the cops, and take on weekly qualifiers to reach The Grand, Lakeshore's ultimate street racing challenge,” says the official description.

The Gameplay Trailer

The developer revealed the very first gameplay footage of the game and it contains just what we thought. Need For Speed Unbound art style differs greatly from its predecessors, and it looks like a mixture of graffiti and comic art.

Not everyone might be a fan of such a style but we sure are; it makes the title distinct from other racing games. There are just so many ways you can make a “realistic racing” game before it starts getting boring.

If you aren’t a fan of the graffiti style, then don’t worry. The developer claimed that you will have the option to completely turn it off.

Different Editions

Need for Speed Unbound is now available for pre-order on all the above-mentioned platforms. There are two different editions of the game, with the Standard Edition setting players back by $69.99. The Deluxe Edition, on the other hand, is a little expensive, but contains the following extra digital goodies:

  • Four stunningly intense, new Custom Cars.
  • New gassy Driving Effects.
  • Mashman Decals and License Plate.
  • Exclusive Character Pose and Banner Artwork.
  • Exclusive Clothing Pack containing 20 items.

Pre-Order Bonus

There’s also a pre-order bonus. Players who purchase any edition of the game before December 2 will get exclusive access to Driving Effects, License Plates, Banner Artwork, and Stickers, plus $150,000 in-game currency for Multiplayer Mode.

While there are obvious benefits to pre-ordering the game, we think it's always a smart choice to wait for reviews. After all, digital copies never run out of stock.
