Dress To Impress Your Rivals

As you race through the ranks in Need For Speed Rivals, you unlock more car classes to match your racing style, but after you chose which car is right for you, the real personalization begins.

On EA's Need For Speed blog, lead designer James Mouat walks readers through the ins and outs of Need For Speed Rival's personalization system, which let's you trick out your cars in all kinds of cool colors. Players who get behind the wheel as a Redview County Police Department Officer will unlock different versions of each car depending on how they choose to play, since it would be strange to see a hot pink cop car streaking down the street.

Each car class has a unique visual style that reflects its performance. Patrol cars and base level cars that give general performance in all areas and will come with the standard RCPD livery. Sturdier Enforcer vehicles offer reinforced construction, and deal more damage when a car chase devolves into bumper cars. Enforcers feature more stylized RCPD livery to reflect their status.

Stay tuned for more details during EA’s Gamescom press conference taking place on August 20 at 8:00am PST.

  • Holy crap. Not a Need for Speed fan, but those models look amazing.
  • Im so glad they brought back the ability to play as a cop.

  • Hey, does anyone see the license plate saying the word "GHOST" on it? seems kinda strange to have that plate, u know. it could be a reference or just a misconception. who knows?
  • The steering wheel is mandatory...
  • I hope the car painting is detailed like Forza Horizon
  • I hope this game turns out to be good!!!

  • I'd like to give it a shot when it comes out.

  • Oh man, do I pick this up for the PS3, or do I wait to get it for PS4? Crap crap crap.
  • So no changing wheels, body components etc? Or is it just a different paint scheme for performance levels?
  • Now they have to specify, where do the graphics look like this? because I do not believe ps3 or xbox 360 will look like this. They look AMAZING!!
  • What The Hell Is this? The cars are nice but in another way they look like crap. Tuners/imports will look better. I'm so not buying this game.

  • So there are different decals on better cars. Cool I guess? Can I pick different decals? Can I make my own? Where is the body customization? The rims, the spoilers, the hood scoops? You know, all the stuff that made the older NfS games awesome.
  • If this game is anything like the Hot Pursuit reboot I am not interested.

  • I pretty sure I read that he said he was going to talk about car customization ..am I right?? yes I am!! 3 stupid pics of cars is not showing sh**t..is this guy serious.. good thing I haven't pre order bc I prob wont get it they cant do better than this..

          ps. the crew from next-gen will prob replace you

  • It's funny. They know the NFS Underground series was the best, but won't go back to it... Silly Rabbits.
