The upcoming Need for Speed Heat, which will arrive in November 2019, is set in a vibrant metropolitan area called Palm City. It will feature Speedhunters Showdown, a series of sanctioned races where you can earn Bank through high-stakes race, drift, and off-road events. The game is all about hustling your way to the top of the racing block. To do that, you must win a lot of races, fill your garage with high-speed cars, customize them, and attract certain people to become your crew of speed demons. At night, Palm City becomes a no-holds-barred event, risking everything to boost your rep, and of course it’s a nonstop problems with the cops. The cops you encounter during the day in Palm City are the lawful guardians of the road – they play by the rules. At night, it’s a different attitude where law enforcement is nothing but a twisted excuse for corrupt cops to ride your tail and take you down. These rogue cops stop at nothing to take it all and burn you and your tricked-out car to the ground.
Getting that first place doesn’t mean anything if you don’t do it in style. That’s why your garage is critical in Need for Speed Heat. Your garage is your sanctuary. It’s a safehouse for you and your crew to celebrate colossal wins. Winning unlocks more options in your garage. Winning boosts your crew. Winning increases your notoriety. Your garage is the ultimate workshop for building and customizing your dream car. From wild colors to go-faster stripes to tons of high-performance options, you’ll have everything you need in your garage to trick out and tweak your car to match your driving style. The roads, the risks, and the rides are endless in Need for Speed Heat, as the stakes don’t get any higher than when you’re locked in a toe-to-toe with the corrupt Palm City PD. Will you take the biggest risks to earn the biggest rewards? Will you own the night to make a name for yourself when the stakes are highest? And when the cops come for you, will you have what it takes to burn them down and win the ultimate prize?
