Need for Speed: Heat ditched loot boxes forever

EA games affirmed back in May a fresh Need for Speed game will arrive at 2019, therefore barring any unexpected delays, we will not need to wait too long to take Need for Speed Heat for a spin.

Need for Speed Heat was announced on Wednesday and is due for release later this year.

This trailer is filled with Need For Speed staples which includes high-performance and customizable cars, which is racing through fictitious but detailed urban settings. It shows plenty of fast, modified cars evading law enforcement officers, as well as street racing.

Pre-orders for Need for Speed Heat are available now. "Heat" will feature day- and night-time driving, as well as weather conditions like rain. This loot box-issue can be considered serious, as, in 2019, Democrat senators in the United States proposed legislation on loot boxes and games described as being "pay-to-win". Though EA issued an apology, they've continued to create loot box and microtransaction-centered controversies. Instead, the game will feature "post-launch paid-DLC in the form of vehicle packs [and] a time-save pack, which will show all collectables on the map", Walke told a few Reddit users.

"Honestly, that's it. No loot boxes and the above". Later this year we'll introduce a time-save pack, which will show all collectables on the map. The developers promise an immersive narrative, authentic urban auto culture, and deeper customization.

Just like the earlier versions of the game, there is a "rogue police task force" which is hell-bent to hunt you down.

"We're delivering more options than ever before for players to be unique and make themselves known".

The game offers more opportunity for players to unleash their creativity and imprint their signature on the cars and characters.
