The lights are on
Electronic Arts showed off a new demo for Need
For Speed Rivals, built on the versatile Frostbite 3 engine.
Need For Speed Rivals is being developed by a new EA studio
called Ghost Games. Similar to the Hot Pursuit series, Need For Speed Rivals
focuses racing clashes between cops and racers. Executive producer Marcus
Nilsson took the stage for a live demo of the game, which blends single-player,
co-op, and competitive multiplayer into one experience.
In the demo, a team member of Ghost Games seamlessly enters
a race by driving up to a start point on the road. A second developer in a cop
car enters the game after a radio call tips him off to the illegal
race. After a few close calls and scraped fenders, a third player uses a tablet to activate Overwatch
mode, calling in choppers and setting up roadblocks.
We'll have more coverage of Need For Speed Rivals from the
show floor later this week.
