The saga of Need for Speed is about to make its roaring return with Unbound, a new chapter that will transport players to the roots of the brand, with clandestine races and rigged cars. Need For Speed Unbound, Criterion promises, will represent a return to origins and to the true spirit of the series but at the same time it will innovate, introducing several new novelties.
As reported in a previous interview with IGN, one of the key components of Need For Speed Unbound will be the new “Risks and Rewards” mechanic.
