The recently revealed Need for Speed reboot is going to be running on the Frostbite engine, the same engine which is also being used for Star Wars: Battlefront.

Johan Andersson, technical director on the technology, confirmed this on Twitter where he wrote the following: “Our next @NeedForSpeed by @GhostGamesEA running on the same version of @FrostbiteEngine as Battlefront!”

Last month we were treated to an in-engine footage of Star Wars: Battlefront which looked phenomenal. While the footage was not in-game, EA confirmed at the time that every asset on display has been taken from the original version of the game. Except for a few cinematic lighting effects, players should expect the same visual experience which the Frostbite engine guarantees.

The Frostbite engine has also been previously used to power Dragon Age: Inquisition and the Battlefield titles.

In related news, the official Twitter account of Need for Speed revealed earlier this week that the reboot shares a lot with the Underground games, but will have its unique identity to boast.

A full reveal of the game is promised to take place during EA’s media briefing next month at E3 2015. For now, the game is known to be in development for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
