What you need to know
- Need for Speed Heat is the next game in the popular franchise.
- It launches on November 8 on Xbox One and other platforms.
- The title removes Need for Speed Payback's Speed Cards.
- You can preorder it for $60 through the Microsoft Store.
A few months ago, EA accidentally leaked Need for Speed Heat for Xbox One and other platforms. The game is coming out in November, and today, the company released a launch trailer that highlights the gameplay. Let's hope that it offers a 60 frames per second option this time around like Forza Horizon 4.
If you want to preorder the game because you have faith in EA, then you can already do so through the Microsoft Store. The standard edition comes in at $60, but EA Access members can get it for less. There's also a Deluxe Edition with a lot of outfits that will probably be sold through cosmetic microtransactions.
Luckily, the egregious Speed Cards from Need for Speed Payback have been removed. However, it's unclear if this means that the game will feature no microtransactions, or if they'll be limited to cosmetic items. Only time will tell, but we should know more in the coming days when it launches.
Lastly, Xbox One X owners will be happy to know that it runs at 4K resolution on the system.
