Need for Speed DLCs for free Saturday, 07.11.2015
Need for SpeedNeed for Speed was released this week, at least for Playstation 4 and Xbox One, PC players will have to wait until Spring 2016. As in most games, Need for Speed will also get DLCs which extend the game after the release.

In an interview with » VICE the Creative Director Craig Sullivan announced that the developers won't charge players for upcoming DLCs. All content is given away for free:

All I can say is, honestly, hand on heart, is there are absolutely no plans to charge for content in this game. We're going to give you everything for free. I've seen the plans for what's going to happen over the next few weeks and months – there's nothing in there, by which I mean, we don't even have the ability to charge you in the game. There's no store to speak of.

Everything we're doing is focusing on listening to what the fans are asking for. They're certainly not saying to us, "Can you build a load of stuff and charge us for it?" They're not saying that, so we're not doing that. I know some people when we do press like this, they say, "Yeah, but I'm sure it'll all change in a week or two, or six months." It's not going to. The plan is that there are no transactions in this game. All of the content that we're going to give you – a pretty substantial amount in the future, starting pretty soon – is going to be free. That's what players deserve.

Need for Speed: Always-On Monday, 10.08.2015
Need for SpeedNeed for Speed relies on the always-on principle, which means in order to play you have to be connected to the internet. This has many advantages, but also disadvantages because you depend on the availability of the servers and your internet connection. Executive Producer Marcus Nilsson explains in the Official Xbox Magazine why they want to use always-on:

"We’ve been pretty big with Autolog throughout the years and, as we know, it’s a really powerful feature," says Nilsson. "This time around we’re going to give it more of a human voice. It will treat your friend’s play as if it is part of the narrative experience."

Additionally the game features a new image sharing system:

We also have a new snapshot system as well," adds Nilsson. "Which is taking pictures of a lot of different moments – [they go] out to the Need for Speed network where people can ‘like’ them, and those likes are being pushed back into the game as currency. So you get progression from sharing your photos.

Need for Speed - Icons / Realtime-Compositing Wednesday, 05.08.2015
Need for SpeedThe upcoming Need for Speed will feature 5 Icons the player will encounter in the game. Those Icons are (in their genre) famous drivers and tuners, eacah representing different areas:

Outlaw-Icon
Become an Outlaw, messing with and escaping from the cops. Always looking to raise the stakes through risk vs reward driving, pushing the limits and looking over your shoulder. Live life on the edge as you crave the thrill of the chase.

Morohoshi-san is usually found prowling Tokyo’s expressways late at night in any one of his heavily modified and brightly coloured Lamborghinis, little is known about the real Shinichi Morohoshi, a man with one foot in normal society and one in the underworld. Morohoshi-san is a walking contradiction, an oxymoron caught between his love of the fastest, the loudest and the flashiest street cars in existence and a desire to keep who and what he is, to himself.

Style-Icon
Style is pure expression through driving, sending your car into a corner sideways with ultimate precision. It’s the feeling of freedom for that split second as your tires leave the ground, when you find yourself in a place where only you and the car exist. For some, style is all that matters.

Ken Block might just be the undisputed king of the internet and has quickly become one of the most recognisable faces and names in the automotive game. Years of driving in top-tier rally, X-Games competitions and his famous Gymkhana videos watched by hundreds of millions of people around the world have honed his skills behind the wheel. Few, if any, can match his ability to throw a flame-belching car sideways with such incredible precision.

In a realm where an inch can mean the difference between worldwide fame or global ridicule, Block rules the streets.

Build Icon
Build is where you take your car to the extreme through both visual and performance modification. The constant need to improve and personalize, shaping the car to your own vision. Craftsmen build, searching for perfection.
Nakai-san

Akira Nakai is a true automotive artist, an artisan builder who uses feel, emotion and nuance to build some of the world’s wildest Porsches. Based out of a small shop in the back blocks of rural Chiba, near Tokyo, Nakai-san has taken his long-running Rauh Welt Begriff brand of Porsche tuning to the world, and now spends much of his time travelling across the globe, building super-aggressive cars for an almost cult-like following of customers.

Speed Icon
Speed is the connection that exists between car and driver that is only present at top speeds. It’s about keeping your nerve and never lifting off the gas. It’s about the adrenaline rush of taking a corner at high speed, having faith that your car will hold firm and not lose grip. The fearless always push the limits.
Magnus Walker

Magnus Walker is one of the most recognisable characters in the automotive world, not just for the dreadlocks and majestic beard, but the accompanying roar of a turbocharged flat-six cylinder howling through the open exhausts of a Porsche “Widowmaker” 930 Turbo.

Magnus may collect and modify classic Porsches, but he’s never been afraid to get out and push them as far as he can on the mean city streets and canyon roads of Los Angeles.

Crew-Ikone
Ride together with your Crew and never hit the streets alone. Put your faith in others as bumpers come within inches of one another. This is the skill of close proximity chaos.

The name Risky Devil has been synonymous with the underground street drifting scene in Chicago. Fish, AJ, Cook, Stevo and T2 are drivers of some of the most badass, tyre-incinerating and envy-inducing street sliders found anywhere, this crew has long been running the midnight streets in this part of the world.

Always coating their machines in a violent shade of blood red, Risky Devil has constantly pushed the boundaries to the absolute limit in search of perfect form, both when it comes to driving and their VIP-inspired, spark-throwing style.




Technically they put a lot of effort in the production and the sequences during the game are created with realtime compositing, where real persons are planted in the game, or the other way round you can find your own car in movie scenes, which creates an interesting graphical mixture:

Need for Speed 2015 - Story and open world Tuesday, 26.05.2015
The new Need for Speed is coming this fall 2015, but so far Ghost Games doesn't reveal very much about the game, apart from the » teaser trailer.
Only on » Gamespot the general manager Marcus Nilsson gives an interview and some insights into the game:

Ghost Games took a year off to find out what the fans really want from a Need for Speed game and try to develop it in several years. A big part of the game will be the story, which came too short in previous NFS games, according to Nilsson. They have an innovative approach on how to tell the story, but Nilsson didn't want to go into detail. With a story though, the game can connect players much better emotionally.

Another point are the online features: Ghost Games wants to "advance the seamless online mode from Rivals, AllDrive, offering players a range of new tools to help them start playing with friends and groups."
Other people can enter your game in the single-player-story-mode and interact with you.

Nilsson has a positive outlook on the racing genre and since the last Need for Speed games didn't sell that well compared to 10 years ago, there is still room for more, but it'll be difficult to compete with other games and especially other media like Facebook and TV.

Need for Speed 2015 Teaser Trailer Thursday, 21.05.2015
The upcoming Need for Speed 2015 is still nameless, but EA released a teaser trailer to give you a little glimpse of the game:



"Need for Speed is one of the most iconic names in gaming, and we're returning it to greatness in this reboot," said Marcus Nilsson, Executive Producer at Ghost Games. "Pulling on our 20 years of history, and then taking a year out from releasing a game, we are making the game we’ve always wanted to. We're listening to the fans and delivering an experience that will capture their imagination and unleash their passion for cars and speed.

Fuelled by EA's own car culture community, Speedhunters, Need for Speed will deliver an experience that's grounded in authentic car culture by diving into the rich world of past, present and emergent trends of the urban car scene. This collaboration with Speedhunters in the research and development of the game means the level of detail and real-world authenticity will envelop gamers in an exciting world to discover and enjoy in a way that only Need for Speed can deliver.

The game will be released this fall for PC (Origin), Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
