The next installment of the Need for Speed franchise is currently in development at Ghost Games, slated for 2015, and today a new career opportunity ad seeking a Narrative Director gave a tidbit of information on what you can expect.
I don't mind a bit of story in arcade racers, as long as it's done right and well written. Here's one thing I find hilarious. A couple years ago Criterion boasted about how they were now in control of the entire NFS IP. Then they released the pile of crap that was the Most Wanted reboot, and now suddenly Ghost Games seems to be the only studio working on NFS games.
I find it hilarious Ghost games will end up as Criterion games if this 2015 title no better than Crapfest hotpursuit , mostwanted , rival . imo, they need to steer away from Burnout engine completely also Dump alldrive , auto-log . be ORIGINAL !!!!!!!!!!
How was auto-log and alldrive not original? Hot Pursuit was awesome, Most Wanted wasent as good but still good all the same, hopefully this will be just as good if not better than those two.
It shocks me no one has mentioned NFS The Run. Had a story. Was horrible.
I just want Need For Speed Underground 3.
Oh cool Need for Speed series is going to be awesome.
Do u actually ever think before you type?
How is this so hard? Just make an open world game with extensive car customization and fun races. That is all I ask! The NFS: Underground Series was one of my favorites. I just want something like it. I don't need a linear story driven racer.
masuta open world games is the problem . not every NFS need to be open world . that is the main reason i have not bought any n4s titles since UNDERGROUND 1 .... i understand 1 or 2 titles but not all titles need to be open world. as we all experience they're not what we expected . i personally wish the tool kit return to BLACKBOX STUDIO ...............
That's nice to hear. I just bought Rivals for PS4 during the Pre-E3 sale (€39,99).
If you are a fan of NFS, just hope its nothing like NFS Undercover. Actual movie actors and the such but probably the worst NFS to date in my opinion. Pro Street wasn't may favorite either but I wasn't into that specific title.
in my personal opinion to date worst NFS is Criterion 2 titles and rival . along with Prostreets,undercover,carbon, underground 2 , the Run. n4s don't need a storyline it's a racing game from point A to finishline not a plot for a drama show . download Rival off PSN other day tested first 5 minutes it sucked. handling , controlling of cars was unbelievable deleted the game from harddrive .
I like the idea of a good storyline
Story in racing games should be done more often. One racing game that did it well a few years back was Modnation Racers lol. Sure its a totally different kind of racing game but it was so refreshing :) Need for Speed underground had a bit of story too i think. Worked well
Well how did the last NFS fare with a storyline? either way as long a it makes sense to the game why not..
Midnight Club was way better then Need for Speed
I never got into the MC series, but it always looked intriguing. If Rockstar were to release one on PS4/XB1 I'd definitely check it out.
Mid Night CLub 3 Dub Edition was amazing back in the day. It gave NFS Underground a run for its money in terms of customisation
Midnight Club: Los Angeles was the bee's knees.
why does a racing game need a storyline, just race and have fun.
I think a story adds to the fun, as long as it isn't poorly written. It gives a little extra incentive to race, even if it's mostly superficial. MotorStorm Apocalypse had a really fun story proving it can be done right.
The original most wanted had a pretty good story line. It gives a reason for the player to beat the game and get more cars.
Just make Underground 3 ffs.
Rivals was pretty decent. Had a lot of fun with it and it had somewhat of a story, that it felt as if it made no sense whatsoever. Recently got hat platinum on it too.
Can u please add manual transmission for cryn out loud!!!!!
Same here! if they release another NFS game with no manual transmission, i'm not buying it! they can have they storyline all they want to, as long as they gimme the transmission option.
Every time I hear about a new racing game and all they talk about is the "story" I have to frown a little. Cause when I want to enjoy a nice story of course I'll play a racing game. Hm right..
I liked the way they did it in nfs mw
Please just make it like NFS: Underground -> Carbon. I'm sick of of the whole Burn out crap. NFS: The Run was good, but the only reason I disliked it a lot was because I couldn't use any car in any race. You do unlock cars...for multiplayer only!!!!!! Just give us the freedom to use any car in any race, customize and tune the car, START FROM THE GROUND UP (meaning you start with a crappy car and progress to get better cars), Bring back drifting like in Carbon, have boss races, finally the story doesn't have to be that amazing. The stories in NFS has always been kinda dumb, but entertaining dumb at the very least. I'm honestly not expecting much from the story at all. I do care more about the cars (I will not buy this new game if it doesn't have the AE86). *Also have a custom soundtrack option!
PLEASE BE NEED FOR SPEED UNDERGROUND 3!!
NFS Underground 3 or stop making these crappy NFS games.
good! i would love to see a great story maybeeeeee in NFS UG3!!
