The first game in Electronic Arts' Need For Speed franchise debuted back in 1994, which makes it older than many of the series' fans.
While there's no shortage of racing games on the market. Need For Speed has remained outrageously popular, even spawning a 2014 feature film starring Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul. And though fans can be forgiven for forgetting that outing, the teaser for a new, rebooted game simply labeled Need For Speed promises a much better experience. The shots in the clip—all captured in-game—have the feel of YouTube street racing videos, if the folks shooting those hyper-legal activities used decent cameras, and had the brain cells not to record vertically.
We'll obviously know more about the cars come closer to game time, but at this point, we know we'll be seeing the 2015 Ford Mustang, a RWB Porsche 911, a Scion FR-S with what looks to be the wide-body Rocket Bunny kit, and a Nissan 180 SX. Electronic arts is also touting "deep customization, authentic urban car culture, a nocturnal open world, and an immersive narrative," along with the spectacular—see the rendering on the puddles and light—graphical elements.
For those who prefer their racing games with a side of Grand Theft Auto, this looks like just the ticket.
The full trailer for the latest Need For Speed will be release June 15.
