After a few disappointing releases in the series, Ghost Games is hoping Need for Speed Heat brings the franchise back to its core: cops and customization.

The new gameplay trailer for the title unveiled at Gamescom 2019 delves a little deeper into these aspects. The cops are always a presence in the game's fictional Palm City, but the extent of their behavior depends on if it's night or day. By day they'll still chase you and pull you over if you've been breaking the law, but at night things get more aggressive as they coordinate efforts to take you down and possibly steal your earnings (from street races and other challenges) if they get to you before you can get to the safety of your garage.

In the garage the game gives you a slew of customization options for almost every car in the game. You can also see the cars of your crew members in the garage as well. The video above gives you a taste of some of the customizable parts for your car and even your avatar, which you can outfit with Adidas shoes, and more.

If the game's customization gets you excited you can get a head start in advance of the game's November 8 release via the Heat Studio app (iOS/Android) available almost everywhere right now. Your creations can then be imported into the game when it launches.
