UPDATE: Here's the teaser trailer. Spoiler: it has cars in it. They go fast.
According to the press release this is a "a full reboot" with developer Ghost saying that: "the game delivers on what the fans want, and what Need for Speed stands for - deep customisation, authentic urban car culture, a nocturnal open world, and an immersive narrative that pulls you through the game".
There's a bit more of EA info that adds: "Need for Speed will deliver an experience that's grounded in authentic car culture by diving into the rich world of past, present and emergent trends of the urban car scene". The new game has apparently been shaped using feedback and research from EA own "car culture community" SpeedHunters.
ORIGINAL STORY: We've already had the image below, promising a Need For Speed reveal today from the game's Facebook page:
Obviously, it didn't look like that when it was posted, but if you ramp the levels right up it reveals the street racing, drifting image hidden within. Now the same page has also posted this, simply stating "Are you ready for the next chapter?":
That looks like a hi-res render of the green car from the first image. Other more recent posts are all leaning towards the past with 'Throwback Thursdays' showing video of old games like Most Wanted and Underground 2. All the evidence, then, is pointing towards a return to the neon decals and bad life choices of the urban racing scene.
The first image promised the reveal would take place on the game's YouTube channel, so expect to see some wheels spinning at some point in a trailer later today.
