The gameplay video for Need for Speed Heat at Gamescom’s Opening Night Live has revealed many aspects of Electronic Arts’ upcoming arcade racing but has not clarified whether or not the title will require an obligatory internet connection in order to devour Palm City’s digital asphalt.
In this regard, the developers of Ghost Games intervene to definitively clarify this important point. Intercepted by the editors of Twinfinite, the top management of the Swedish subsidiary of EA officially confirmed the absence of the Onlineways but suggesting to fans of driving games and the NFS series to play as much as possible together with the other users because all this ” will be useful “ for gameplay purposes.

By deciding to play online, users will be able to experience an even wider range of strategies and tactics: one of the in-game approaches described by the bosses of the Swedish development company involves the search for a player with a higher Heat level than ours, a once reached, he will push the policemen in our pursuit to head towards the new target considered more dangerous.
