Ghost Games recently confirmed that a new Need for Speed game is currently in the works and will arrive this year.

After the 2015 Need for Speed reboot, we haven’t had a lot of news on the next entry in the popular racing series. In a recent blog post, Ghost Games finally confirmed that a new Need for Speed is getting ready for release and revealed more details about the game’s direction.

Need for Speed new features

The developer confirmed that car customization will still be a part of the game in a new big way, and added that police chases would also make their grand return.

Woop woop…let’s talk about cops. There’s nothing more satisfying than getting into a cop chase and feeling the heat on your tail as you tear it up through the city. Cops in pursuit, racers up ahead and then out of nowhere BAM! They bring a Rhino to a street race. You got this?

Need for Speed now supports offline gaming

The new game will lack the previous game’s always-online requirement. This previous feature was not at all appreciated by the gamers and Ghost Games is aware of this:

So, when release day rolls around for the next Need for Speed, you will be able to play through a single player experience completely offline. Before you ask, and we know you will, this does mean you will be able to pause the game.

The new game does not yet have a name and is expected to arrive sometime this year. Ghost Games promised more information before the Electronic Art’s E3 event, EA Play, scheduled for next month.
