The thrill of racing and the adrenaline of the chase is back!
The world is your canvas in Need for Speed Unbound. A new and original visual style combines elements of today’s street art with the most realistic cars in the history of Need for Speed. Get behind the wheel of these iconic cars in a single player campaign that challenges you to beat the competition, earn money and make your mark in the world of street racing.
Immerse yourself in the world of Lakeshore City: A family shoplifting rips apart friendships and marks a driver’s breakthrough to the top, after a journey to win the ultimate street race and recover the priceless car that was stolen.
To get to the top, you have to take risks. Choose how and when to put it all on, do big street drifts, outrun the police or place bets with rivals. But don’t forget, the faster you go, the more brutal the chase will be… Use your head, make bold decisions and rule the streets.
If beating Lakeshore’s biggest names isn’t enough, take on pioneering hip hop artist A$AP Rocky in a new event that will have you prove your skills… in style. Who knows? Maybe you’ll get a chance to see his car up close or even take a ride in one.
Did we talk about style? Keep your look cool and eye-catching with hundreds of visuals featuring world-renowned avant-garde designers, endless car customization options, including new driving effects to help you light up the streets of Lakeshore. Don’t forget… it’s not enough to just keep up appearances. Sound is also important. Enjoy a genre-bending soundtrack from avant-garde artists from the world of hip-hop, including world-renowned rapper A$AP Rocky and AWGE, including the world premiere of new track “Sh*ttin’ Me,” which will also feature a launch trailer.
