The British developer studio Criterion Games has been working on Need for Speed Unbound since 2020.

In a video, the developers have now revealed what the racing system in the arcade racing game is all about.
Play dollars as wager
Need for Speed Unbound earn more money with side bet Source: Electronic Arts You can earn virtual money in the game for four weeks by taking part in different races. The qualification then takes place on Saturdays, and only those who have collected enough dollars over the week can participate. Before each race you have to pay a participation fee, which you get back if you win the race. To earn even more virtual dollars, you can challenge opposing racers with a side bet. In addition, you get more money by escaping the police in car chases. The law enforcement officers can also use helicopters for this purpose. The more races you win, the higher the police wanted level.
The new vehicle handling should come into its own in duels with law enforcement officers in particular. Each of the 140+ cars included has its own driving strengths and weaknesses. In NFS Unbound there is a single player campaign that is played offline and an online multiplayer mode. Incidentally, the controversial anime effects can also be switched off. If you like, you can buy various cartoon effects to celebrate your own lifestyle while driving. The style should come into play even more through individual clothing for the avatar. Cars can be tuned in terms of both performance and appearance. NFS: Unbound will be available on December 2nd for PC on Steam, Origin, the Epic Games Store, and for Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X|S on Amazon. No version of the new NFS has been announced for the PS4 and Xbox One.
