Electronic Arts announced the next NFS called Need for Speed Heat! In the game, which is developed by Ghost Games, it's all about street racing and speed. An important part of the game will be the difference between day and night. During the day you discover the screets of Palm City in Speedhunter Showdowns with official racing-events. In the night, you can participate in illegal street races and build your rep to get access to bigger races and better parts. Watch out for the cops though.
The first trailer gives you an impression of the game:
Of course the will also be modifications on the car. There will be more individualization and it even should be possible to change the clothes of your character and fulfill your creative vibe.
Need for Speed Heat will be released for PC, PS4 and Xbox One and can already be preordered. The game will hit the stores on November 8th, 2019.

These new events appear automatically on your in-game map and will be visible to all players who have completed chapter two. Simply look out for the event icons in Silver Canyon, Liberty Desert and Mount Providence.

Aston Martin DB5
Add a touch of British luxury to your garage, in the form of the Aston Martin DB5. Drive faster than a thunderball in this absolute classic, regarded by many as the most beautiful Aston Martin ever produced. However, this one comes with a license to Super Build.

This is the first car that will be making the jump from level 299 to 399. We’re looking forward to hearing your feedback on this as it will shape the future of increasing the limit of further cars.
Bait Crates Checkpoint removal
We know that a more open cop experience is important to our community and you will have no doubt noticed that the Abandoned Car system experiments with this. Due to the ongoing feedback we’ve received and the in-game telemetry from Abandoned Cars we’ve made the decision to remove all checkpoints from the Bait Crates system. The end point will remain in place but how you get there is entirely up to you.
In addition to the checkpoint removal we have increased the spawn rate, and Bait Crates will now appear in greater frequency across Fortune Valley.
As announced, Need for Speed Payback will be extended with Alldrive Hangout, which allows you to explore Fortune Valley alongside your friends and to show off your cars.
Additionally you get Catch-up Packs, which allow you to speed up the progression of your cars, new Underglow and Tire Smoke, as well as the ability to sell or trade-in all currently unequipped Speed Cards.
Also the Snapshot Pro mode got improvements, which means you can now take Snapshots while in a takedown sequence. Additionally you can zoom further away from the car and you get new filter options; cinematic, Cool, Warm, Grunge, Vintage, Desaturated, Lo-Fi, Vivid Retro, Infra Zone and Monochrome Monitor.
