Need for Speed: Rivals Lets You Play Both Sides

Do you want to uphold the law or break it? In this fast pace racing game you can experience both sides!

I love the Need for Speed games so I cannot wait for this new one to come out! Need for Speed: Rivals takes place in Redview County where an all out war is happening. This street racing rivalry is between the law-abiding policemen and the law breaking racers. In this fast-paced game there are high stake challenges, consequences and rewards. The best part is you can play both sides! You can play as a stern cop one day and a daring racer the next!

Whats cool about this game

As a cop in this game your job is to stop the racers at all costs. They are breaking the law and it is your job to catch them. You have a team of cops that will help you hunt down racers and catch them. As a racer you are only looking out for yourself. You have fast sleek cars ment for high-speed racing and the unavoidable chases. You will have do anything to avoid the cops. Each side has different cards and technology, so chose a side and chose it well.

You can also put your identity into your car. You can give it a paint job, custom licence plates, rims, liveries, and decals. You can show off your style in your car, and then you can save the look in a car package.

A new feature is "All Drive", which allows you and your friends to race together. You can have a group of saved races and cars to play with your friends. You can play with them online or offline.

Need for Speed: Rivals is set to release in mid to late November in North America, starting November 15 for PlayStation 4. Need for Speed: Rivals will be available on Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One as well.

So which side will you choose?

    I used to be a big fan of the Need for Speed franchise back in the Playstation and Playstation 2 era, and have slowly started liking their game a little less with each subsequent release. The games are still fun but they are similar to one another it feels, but I am hopeful that Rivals will break that trend. I've always liked being able to be a cop or racer, so that's a definite plus for Rivals. Not sure that it will be one of the first next-gen games I buy, but I will definitely be trying out Rivals before the end of 2013.

    Playing both sides is very intriguing. I'm not one for racing games, but this one looks good!

    I really like the dimensions this game is getting. I feel like this game is so classic and now to be able to play both sides makes it so interesting.
