EA States New Need for Speed Is Not Underground 3

EA States New Need for Speed Is Not Underground 3 News  Need for Speed EA

EA has now confirmed that the new Need for Speed game is not really a spiritual Underground 3 game.

The official Need for Speed twitter page confirmed:

It’s not Underground 3 as such, but does share a lot of the stuff that made that game great. This is just #NFS”

Many people were hoping the new game was Underground 3. This pretty much confirms the new game is not, but it will still share some of the same content.

Judging from the first teaser, the new Need for Speed game will be open-world and police cars will still be a part of it. It might not delve too deep into the street racing culture like the Underground games did.

The Need for Speed twitter page also clarified the game’s title is just Need for Speed. Some people were thinking a subtitle would be added later on. Just like we saw from the first teaser trailer, the simple title will be kept. It’s kind of like a reboot such as 2011’s Mortal Kombat game and 2013’s Tomb Raider.

It’s interesting they decided to “reboot” the franchise since the last game in the Need for Speed series only came out in 2013. Also, Need for Speed Rivals was still well received too.

    Need for speed games have been so terrible lately, lost what made them so great. I think the last need for speed game I thought was good was undercover. Could not care less about the games they release now, pretty much just burnout and God how I loath those games, they’re fun if you’re 10, literally no skill is required whatsoever considering you don’t even have to break fucking once. If this sees a return to actual street racing, career progression with cars to be unlocked, not just given at the start, and provides in depth customisation similar to the likes of underground series, most wanted original, carbon etc then, and only then, will I be happy.

      hot pursuit was awesome! and Most wanted was a solid game…. and they were both from the last 5 years

    Need for speed games have not been the same sense carbon it would be amazing if this new need for speed could have a lot more similarities to the other old games not only that but I feel like it would be a great way to bring need for speed back out there

    The last proper NFS I played was Carbon I loved Underground 2 but it really lost its spark since then. I bought Rivals and the very next day put it on Ebay. It was not a proper NFS.

    i sincerely hope they have drag mode and include real time damage.. having damage like engine probs, tyres blown ect will make it realistic as it should be but keeping it fun and competitive.
