Need For Speed Unbound Gameplay Trailer Shows Off Speed Race Events

Nov 22, 2022 · 13


Another extended gameplay trailer of Need For Speed Unbound showcases the highly-requested return of speed race events, prior to the game's release next week. The trailer dives into the racing action itself, detailing meetups, specialty manoeuvres, and side bets where players can choose to bet on any of the competitors.

Electronic Arts previously released gameplay trailers showing police chases and illustrated effects based on graffiti-like animations. But the latest gameplay snippet gives players their most in-depth look at Need For Speed Unbound thus far, showcasing meetups, the menu of options, and how players can participate in Speed Race events.

The trailer, which can be viewed below, starts with the player joining a meetup while driving through the streets of Lakeshore, at which point a menu with options like rivals, events, and my rider appears. The race on display, called Lakeshore Express, includes a buy-in which showcases the amount of money players must pay to participate in the event, whilst also showing how much money players will earn if they win the race.

After starting the race, four heads up appear in all corners of the screen, showcasing what position the player is currently in, what the lap time is, and how many laps are left to the end. A mini-map appears on the bottom left, while the tach with a dashboard is located in the bottom right. Once players complete the race, four new speed race events will appear on the screen, giving them another chance to win the big prize. Additionally, speed race events include drift and endurance races with different specialty manoeuvres. There will also be races with $0 buy-in and a certain amount of payout.

Players can also choose which one of the competitors to bet with an aim to double their money. Once players bet on a driver, the speed race will kick off immediately. Although the exact locations of meetups were not shown off in the trailer, these meetup spots are hidden away from the police department. So players will have to go on a trip through the city to join illegal races. Lastly, they will have time to customize their car and driver before racing.

Need For Speed Unbound set itself apart from previous NFS games with its graffiti-themed visual art style. Set in the sprawling city of Lakeshore, Need For Speed Unbound will release on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC on December 2.
