Need unlimited speed It technically doesn’t launch until December 2nd, but you can join now if you already have a Game Pass and are ready to download EA’s app. It’s available as part of EA’s Game Test, so you’ll only be able to play for 10 hours before getting kicked out, but that’s time spent on police chases and lots of gameplay. electronic.
I haven’t played a Need For Speed game since I was 13 and this is completely out of my league, but yeah, sure, let’s drive. It looks like the games I remember but with optional silly cartoon wings and dust trails.
The campaign is structured around earning enough money to take part in ‘The Grand’: the biggest, greatest, streetiest of them all. You can do that by both winning races and betting on yourself to win those races, this sounds like something to be made as a decision but would just make me bet max bet on yourself every time and reload if i lose.
steam page also suggested that you can earn money by participating in police chases, which is more of my preference than straight racing and that’s why I’m interested. Those seem to involve making “tactical decisions using the new escape mechanism”, which seems to mean that in addition to driving really fast, you can choose to hide or ” fight them head-on.” I’ve played enough GTA to know that fighting the police only leads to them having to use a helicopter to launch rockets to shake it up, thank you very much.
I’m sure if I checked, I’d see Need For Speed Underground 2 now look like a horrible pixel streak, but this actually looks like what I remember – except for the animated dust trails and other cosmetics that I’ll probably take out for a short shoot before giving up.
In fact, finding the EA trial is complicated. Unlimited didn’t show up when I searched the store on the Xbox app with Game Pass, so I had to scroll down from the homepage and click through EA Play, then select Unlimited. Probably this link would be helpful, but the difficulty of using an account means you’re better off going to the Xbox app like I did, then following the prompts from there to (ugh) download EA’s app.
If you want to play early without that 10-hour time limit, you can also pay £70 for the Palace version, but that’s silly isn’t it.
