Criterion Games bounce back with their next annual take on the Need For Speed franchise.
EA Games and Criterion Games have announced the development of Need For Speed: Rivals for release on various consoles in the near future. The latest entry in their hit video games racing franchise, Rivals is thought to be Criterion's fully-fledged spiritual successor to their acclaimed 2010 epic Hot Pursuit, reviving a sense of adrenaline in both its narrative and core race modes.
We don't know tonnes just yet on what the new gameplay features will entail, but rumour has it that EA want to match up to the success of off-road efforts such as DIRT and Forza Horizon, perhaps influencing the direction the main campaign will take. Whatever their approach, you can bet that this new sequel will have just as much appeal as Call Of Duty: Ghosts and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag do this year for their respective fanbases.
Need For Speed: Rivals retails on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Nintendo WiiU and PC on November 19th.
