Need for Speed 2015 Needs The Internet For You To Play It
2015’s Need for Speed game from EA is taking a page out of Ubisoft’s The Crew. You will need an internet connection in order to play the game.
The official Need for Speed Twitter page revealed:
“NFS will require an online connection, but the benefits are nice. More variety and a more rewarding experience with friends. Being connected will allow your friends to be part of your narrative experience, something only possible through connected play”
An always online internet connection to play Need for Speed can be perceived as a negative thing for some gamers. If PSN or Xbox Live goes down, you cannot play the game at all. People without an internet connection at all won’t be able to buy it.
The Need for Speed Twitter page clarified that the game has both single player and multiplayer modes. They are not revealing how the single player works until a later date.
Need for Speed 2015 sounds very similar to Ubisoft’s The Crew. That game required an internet connection even if you were only playing the game’s single player story mode. The same can be said for Destiny as well. EA probably wants the open-world environment to feel connected and updated.
Are you kind of disappointed that Need for Speed 2015 is an always-online game?
