The first Need for Speed: Heat screenshot has found its way online via GamerGen.com, and it’s pretty much what you’d expect. Developer Ghost Games recently unveiled the title via a brief teaser trailer, although we didn’t get much of an idea of how the game will actually play. The screenshot depicts a racer flanked by a copy car on the neon-lit streets of Palm City.

Check out the screenshot below.
Need for Speed: Heat is pencilled in for a November 8 release for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One. The game will not feature loot boxes, so that’s a plus, and those of you looking to splash out on the game can snap up the Collector’s Edition exclusively at GAME in the UK.
Developer Ghost Games is also planning a series of post-launch car packs for the game, but hasn’t shared any more info at this point on its DLC plans.
Need for Speed: Heat takes place in an open-world Palm City, a location that serves as the meeting point for numerous street racers looking to leave their mark. It all sounds a bit Fast and Furious, to be honest. During the day, players take part in Speedhunters Showdown, which is a sanctioned competition allowing racers to earn Bank to customise and upgrade their flashy motors.
However, things change when night falls, as racers must then risk it all in an attempt to increase their Rep during underground races. This is easier said than done, with rogue police task forces roaming the streets looking to strip racers of all their earnings.
EA will be showcasing the first Need for Speed: Heat gameplay at Gamescom next week, so keep your eyes on PSU.com for all the latest updates as we get them.
Here’s hoping it’s better than Need for Speed: Payback, eh?
