Need for Speed: PS4/Xbox One get closed beta

Limited space closed beta registration to perform special technical tests.

Need for Speed made some big announcements concerning the state of development, so both PC and console gamers, listen up.

Xbox One and PS4 gamers will be able to sign up and experience a limited time closed beta session, and for those who haven't heard yet; PC gamers will have to wait for their OS release until September 14, 2016.

So, here comes the closed beta. If you head to the Need for Speed website, you will be able to register today for a chance at the closed beta session that will last until September 25th.

You will need to sign in with your EA account to access the registration process. Space is limited, so not all those who register will be able to get into the beta. Those who are granted access will be notified by email.

This will all be to help the developers, Ghost Games, with some technical testing to have a better launch. There is no news for any beta tests on PC.

Need for Speed is an iconic racing series, and this full reboot for "modern" consoles is meant to reinvigorate that old game with new life. The reboot was announced in late May, and will include online and single-player modes.

    I am so excited for the PC version of this. It's like all the ingredients of all the best NFS's. Underground style car customization with the vanilla NFS police chasing part. Come on EA, all the pieces are there, don't mess this up.
