Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Need for Speed Rivals
After months of anticipation, it has arrived: Sony’s PlayStation 4. The $399 successor to the PS3 is available alongside numerous games and services, including the PS App companion for Android and iOS, allowing use of the handhelds as second screens and as remotes; PSN for PS4, along with popular apps such as Hulu and Netflix; and over 20 games, including Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Battlefield 4, Contrast, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack, Need for Speed Rivals, and Resogun. The system comes with a replaceable 500 GB hard drive and 8GB of GDDR5 of RAM, while the operating system allows gamers to share videos and screenshots over social media networks and streaming sites. Each package also contains vouchers for a free month of PS Plus, one for a month of Music Unlimited, and another for $10 in PS Store credit.
Electronic Arts has announced that the next-gen version of Need for Speed Rivals will be arriving ahead of schedule and hitting store shelves (and PSN) alongside the PS4, on November 15. Rivals will support Remote Play, which will allow gamers to begin races on their PS4 and end them on their PS Vita, or vice versa. The Frostbite 3-powered racer will allow players to take to the streets as a racer on the run from the law or as the pursuing police. The game will boast day and night cycles, weather effects, and different progression paths that have their own vehicles and unlocks.
