Check Out the Need for Speed Movie Full Length Trailer

Need for Speed Rivals on shelves now in North America (coming for Xbox One on Friday and on PS4 in Europe next week) and being praised by critics around the globe.

Need for Speed Rivals is injecting new innovation into the racing genre with AllDrive, a revolutionary feature seamlessly connecting gamers to one world where their single-player races and chases can collide at any time. Game Informer claims that it “brilliantly blurs the line between single and multiplayer experiences,” while Eurogamer calls it “a racer that any of its competitors would do well to match in the new generation.” USGamer also raved about Need for Speed Rivals saying it is “without a doubt the PS4’s very first ‘must have’ game.”

Next year, Need for Speed will be hitting the big screen in a major motion picture starring Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad, who plays Tobey - a muscle car mechanic and street racer framed for a crime he didn't commit. When he leaves prison he's determined to settle the score with the man responsible for his false conviction. Check out the latest full-length movie trailer and don't forget to pick up your copy of Need for Speed Rivals and start racing today!

    Many teenagers will find it very interesting. Their love of high-speed cars will really help increase the sales. So the more cars there are, the more interesting they will find it. It will help if some information about different cars is included in it since audience is keen to find out a little bit more about their favorite vehicles in a fascinating way. DbaiG Bolee.com

    Fix your damn game is all I'm asking for. I pre-order it on PSN (Playstation Network) downloaded the game play for a few days now the game don't even work. First: Frame rate drops to the point it get so slow you can't even move. Second: The screen goes from blue to red then back again ever so often. Third: I can't even get out of the hideout without the game freezing up my PS3. I have to unplug it turn it back on & it been doing for hours now. FIX THE DAMN GAME OR GIVE ME MY MONEY BACK.

    If I had had any Idea that NFS Rivals om the PC was LOCKED at 30 FPS I would not have purchased it!! News and complaints about this globally are increasing - listen to your customers and remove / patch this really really stupid fps lock - you think people who own PC's want this - there is a long list of gpu's/cpu's that are capable of running the game much much more - if people wanted sub standard 30fps we would have not gone past PS1 !! Look at the complaints - patch it - fix it!!!

      Got the same problem. Was told to unplug the network cable during startup/loading, delete game profile and saved gama data, test the game with another PSN login account, test the game on another PS3 console, bla bla bla.... Nothing works, and EA need to come up with an emergency fix ASAP!!!

      Reasons being many, I am guessing this is a site that has been put up to appease the general disappointment the public has in this game. A sounding board so we think they are hearing us. I bought this game just over a week ago, it has froze on me a number of times, online and offline, at least twice a day. It will also perform temporary freezes, upto 5 seconds, this happens about as often as the full freeze. You can imagine the momentary heart rate spike. I really enjoy the playing of it when you have several cars and helicopters etc around you and it starts to lag. Surely the PS3 can handle this or maybe not, I don know. The playing of the game..... cruising at 180+ straight stretch of road no cars.... nope I am wrong a car appears either out of no where or actually drops 8 feet out of the sky in front of you. Love that you can't pause in the once driving, heaven forbid a doorbell or phone rings, dogs have to go outside, etc etc. In cop mode I have unlocked all the cars.... ohhh no wait, I haven't one relocked itself so I can't be 100% complete in cop mode. I am level 61 in cop level 50 in Overwatch, all cop events are completed, level 37 in racer. As for how they got all these raving reviews I have no idea, other than the reviewers or reviewees obviously did not play the game for any length of time. There are some less serious issues, customized licence text defaulting to ghost after you have changed it repeatedly. An option of selecting an event and it showing the map before you commit to racing it would be a nice feature as I find at high speed the map in HUD does not give you enough scale to know there is a tight right or left coming until you shoot past it. Also of course you dont want to be looking there too often in case those magically appearing cars. We have all paid top dollar for this game, some of us 3 days before it went on sale. My two cents worth.

    Wow, looks like everyone else is as happy as i am with this game. The things i like the best is how they say how many people are giving good reviews and are so happy but when u look at reviews besides the ones they handpick it's almost impossible to find any good ones. O and i really love the deception of how customization of the cars is super important so you can really stand out among your friends then u find out u can't even change your rims even though it clearly stats u can. AAAHHH!
