Haven’t we seen enough of the fiasco that always online policies put games into? Many a times there have been titles that would usually be loved by the community, but the mandatory internet connection requirement turned things upside down.
Now, we have received confirmation that the upcoming Need for Speed title is also going to ask you to stay online in order to play the game – lets just hope they have the gameplay elements that would justify it.
This came out through the official Twitter profile of Need for Speed where developers have recently answered a bunch of questions asked by the fans.
NFS will require an online connection, but the benefits are nice. More variety and a more rewarding experience with friends.
When asked to explain the need of this, they said that “this allows us to push the boundaries of the overall experience we can deliver to the fans,” I wish they would be a little more precise here. However, they continued
Being connected will allow your friends to be part of your narrative experience, something only possible through connected play.
Someone else inquired them about beta phases of the game to which they said that “we have not announced any news on Beta as of yet, but stay tuned as we have more information coming in the weeks ahead.” So yeah, we might actually get a beta someday.
Other than that, the game has a single player as well as a multiplayer, does not have a cockpit view in camera options, the official name of the game is just Need for Speed, nothing else, E3 will bring the gameplay trailer, lastly it is a “full reboot of the franchise” and not a sequel.
