EA has finally revealed Need for Speed Unbound in a new trailer and has announced a December release date at the end. The game looks to have anime aspects, which undoubtedly sets it apart from the previous installment. Here’s everything known about Need for Speed Unbound, including gameplay, platforms, pre-order details, and more.

According to the recent reveal trailer, Need For Speed Unbound is set to release on 2 December 2022. The platforms include PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC, and they will all be launched on the same day. However, there could be some bad news for users of previous generations.
The reveal trailer doesn’t mention consoles from the previous generation, such as the PS4 or Xbox One, implying that fans would require a current-gen system to access the game.

Need for Speed Unbound seems to have a lot to offer, including the potential to challenge A$AP Rocky to a style competition. The new game combines actual cars with street art to create a distinctive appearance that seems quite original for the franchise.
