NFS Unbound has a new art style that might not be to everyone’s liking. This cel-shaded “anime” style can be a bit distracting when driving around so players have been wondering if you can turn off these driving effects in NFS Unbound.

Well wonder no more as we are here to explain which driving effects can be toggled off in Need for Speed Unbound and how to do disable these effects for a cleaner look.

How to turn off cel-shaded driving effects in NFS Unbound

We need to blunt from the start, you cannot completely disable the driving effects in NFS: Unbound. These effects are permanent and here to stay. Fortunately, there are a few workarounds that allow you to tone these down a bit and make them less cartoonish.

The developers did announce that they will allow layers to disable Driving Effects, but they soon retweeted that the Tail Smoke and Trail Lights cannot be disabled.

These driving effects are known as Tags in the game, and you can change them in the game. Although they won’t be disabled, you can still change them to something more realistic or less distracting, making your experience much better.

To change your Tags, simply go to Rides and into the Styles menu. Here, select the Tags tab and from here, you can select any Tag that you think is the best for your ride.

We recommend that you go with Cloaked Tag as it results in gray smoke, which seems the most reasonable and bland such that it becomes less distracting and cartoonish in the game.

Cloaked Tag is your best bet for reducing the Driving Effects to a minimum. Even though it isn’t reduced at all, it becomes much more bearable and sensible rather than neon smoke coming from your car as the tires screech.
