  • Open-world
  • Darker, more serious story
  • Ghost Games will use this game as a base for ALL Need for Speed games going forward
  • Game is a fusion of NFS 2015 + NFS Rivals
  • Not always online, can be paused
  • Brake to drift is returning but has been fixed and modified to make it responsive
  • Levelling up unlocks parts like NFS 2015
  • Speed Cards are completely removed
  • Off-road is gone
  • Graphics look better than Payback and is on par with 2015. You've got water on the road, reflections, that kind of thing
  • No Day/Night cycle. Time of day is dictated by which races you get into
  • Rain is confirmed
  • Classic NFS-style cop chases are back and are in free roam. They have heat levels, helicopters are returning to free-roam chases and there's no speedbreakers.
  • Damage bars and petrol stations are returning from Rivals
  • Pro Street Legal Races will be around
  • Speed list assignments are returning from Rivals for a more non-linear experience
  • The appearance of nitrous is a mix between the effect in NFS Rivals and the effect in NFS 2015
  • Heat level has an 80s flair to it

Having the ability to pause is now a bullet point. Oh EA.
