Online Video Footage of the New Need for Speed
Criterion Games announced the development of a new Need For Speed video game. It was rumored to be and scheduled for release this year. However, we have seen very little.
Screenshots showing an overworld map and a few cars emerged. This is all we have from the project except for the most recent news that Codemasters are now aboard. The latest leaks, which seem to have been taken from a playtest, are not likely to be from the mainline series game. It’s a very short clip that shows the Need For Speed we love.
Reddit has leaked the new footage, which a user took from Discord. According to one studio, the playtest was conducted by a third party. It is being developed under Tencent, the largest game publisher in the world.
The removed IDs and watermarks relate to the person playing the test. They can be traced back to the original person who took the footage if found. The footage is from a new mobile Need For Speed video game. Tencent owns three cars, the McLaren F1, Lamborghini Aventador SVJR, and the Gallardo.
The mobile game will not have a story, and there won’t even be cops. This map was taken from 2019’s Speed: Heat and created in the Unreal Engine 4. Tencent’s Edge free-to-play Need For Speed title will continue to be used for the handling. However, it is unknown if this latest game will be either an MMO or free.
