Need for Speed: Rivals captures the adrenaline and intensity of the street's ultimate rivalry between cops and racers in a stunning open road environment.
This edition of the popular racing game allows you to play as either a cop or racer, where each side of the law has its own set of high stake challenges, rewards and consequences.
As a racer, the goal is to become infamous for taking risks behind the wheel and capturing your most intense escapes on video for the world to see. The more cops players evade, the more Speed Points they collect. Speed Points enable you to unlock new cars and items. Keep raising the stakes race after race to become an ever-more valuable target to the cops, but risk losing it all if busted.
As a cop, players work together as part of a team in pursuit of racers, earning prominence and rising in the ranks of the Police Force with every bust. Achieving higher ranks unlocks new police-only cars and more powerful pursuit tech.
Need For Speed have also included an innovative new online feature called AllDrive. This allows gamers to play online with friends; players will have to keep one eye on their rearview mirror as friends will be able to enter and exit races on-the-fly, creating a world where no two events will ever be the same.
