25 Years of NFS Anniversary Update

Need for Speed No Limits

Hello, Racers!

The year was 1994: Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction debuted in theaters;  The Beastie Boys’ Sabotage was on constant rotation on MTV; and a little game called Need for Speed was released into the world. 25 years later, NFS it is still tearing up the streets! To celebrate, we have a Speedhunters takeover of Novato Coast and Blackridge Mountain! Also in this update, take a look back at the classic series and forge ahead into the future of dominating the competition!

We heard you like Bugatti? Take No Limits' first Bugatti on a journey through Need for Speed's greatest hits in the Need For Speed 25th Anniversary Special Event. You can also earn the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R in a brand-new Breakout event. Plus - Urban Legend joins the NFSNL Flashback list.
