Electronic Arts released a new trailer video for the "Need For Speed Rivals" racing game, this time focusing on the progression and pursuit technology upgrades. As expected, the new "NFS Rivals" will offer all the gadgets the players are used to from previous iterations, but taken to a completely new level of customization.

The best part of the new game is that it will offer its players the ability to drive a bunch of rare exotics , like the Pagani Zonda , Bugatti Veyron and the strange looking Lamborghini Veneno .

All the latest sports cars are also featured in the game, including the 2014 Corvette Stingray , the SRT Viper and the McLaren MP4-12C .

The new Need For Speed Rivals will be released on November 22nd, 2013. The game was specially designed for for the PlayStation 4 and the XBox One, but it can also be played on PS3 and XBox 360.

Back in 2012, Electronic Arts and Dreamworks announced plans to develop a movie inspired by the "Need For Speed " video game . After much speculation, today we can bring you the first official trailer of the movie, and we have to admit, it looks quite promising.

Muscle car mechanic and street racer Tobey (Aaron Paul) was framed for a crime he did not commit, so he gets out of prison determined to settle the score with the man responsible for his false conviction.

As you can see from the trailer video, he gets to thrash around tons of bad-ass cars, like a heavily modified Shelby GT500, a McLaren P1 , the MP4-12C , a Bugatti Veyron , plus a few Koenigsegg and Saleen models. If that’s not enough to get the race fuel running through your veins, we don’t know what to say...

The "Need For Speed" movie will hit theaters on March 14th, 2014.

We all know the thrill of playing a game like Need for Speed . No matter how expensive our wrecks turn out to be, there still just a reset button away from being brand-spankin’ new again.

So it comes as no surprise that the newest title to come out of the Need for Speed franchise, appropriately dubbed "Rivals", allows us to go through the ringer of being chased by some highly-powered police cars. Of course, the cars that are at our disposal are no slouches either, making for a really awesome game that allows us to wind down after a day’s worth of work.

Check out the new trailer video featuring the "undercover cop" and you’ll notice a bevy of rare exotics getting wasted like there’s no tomorrow. There’s a Pagani Zondas , Bugatti Veyrons , and yes, even the rarefied Lamborghini Veneno .

All of them, and a whole lot more, are part of the new Need for Speed: Rivals game.

The game is scheduled to hit shelves this November as part of a series of launch titles for the PlayStation 4 and the XBox One. But don’t worry, the game will also be available for the PS3 and the XBox 360.

Though we’re pretty confident that the "Need for Speed" movie will hit theaters on schedule next March, in the event that it doesn’t, we can all take comfort in knowing that director Scott Waugh is taking the video game treatment to the cinema screens pretty seriously.

We already saw a "making-of" trailer of the movie a month ago, and now, more behind-the-scenes footage is propping up for our enjoyment.

This particular scene was apparently filmed in the streets of Detroit with the one-off Shelby GT500 Need For Speed Edition taking to the streets to put in some serious drift work ala those "Need for Speed" video games.

We already know that the Shelby GT500 also plays the role of the movie’s "hero car," which means that we expect it to last for the duration of the movie. The same can’t be said for some of the supercars that were used and abused in the "making-of" trailer.

As for this footage, it doesn’t last long, taking up only half-a-minute of your time. Yet in that short time frame, we’re treated to a pretty sick shot of the GT500 doing its business right in its hometown.

Needless to say, we can’t wait to see this movie come out.

“Need for Speed: Rivals” is the latest version of the long-running NFS franchise and is set to be released late in November. However, until then EA’s recent E3 press conference brought us a new trailer video and some more details on the upcoming racing game.

The new “Need For Speed: Rivals” will offer you the chance to drive lots of agile cars built for high-speed racing and epic chases. You can play either as a street racer and run from the cops, or as a cop and chase the racers.

As a street racer, you can drive cars like the new Ferrari F12berlinetta or the Nissan GT-R Black Edition . When playing as a cop, you will enjoy the Koenigsegg Agera R and others.

“Need for Speed: Rivals” will be released on November 19, 2013 and it is now available for pre-order on Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3 & PC.

The “Need for Speed” movie is scheduled to hit theaters next year and while that’s been getting more publicity in the past few days, it’s also worth pointing out that Electronic Arts is releasing the latest installment of the car racing video game franchise this year.

The game is called “Need for Speed: Rivals” and the latest trailer appears to suggest that the ’rivals’ approach is far more than just a title.

It’s already been established that with “NFS: Rivals”, gamers will be given the opportunity to either play the game as a the street racer or the cop, ensuring that they can experience the thrills of being the chaser or the runner, depending on what suits their style better.

What’s more, Need for Speed’s new trailer gives everyone a chance to understand both situations, complete with a voiceover dialogue from the protagonist and antagonist alike.

“Need for Speed: Rivals” is scheduled to hit shelves on November 19th, giving us enough time to absorb what we’re in store for so once we get a hold of the game later this year.

The "Need for Speed" movie has been getting plenty of publicity the past few days. A day after it was announced that the Ford Mustang will play a starring role in the movie, a new video "Making-Of" trailer was released on the "Need for Speed" YouTube channel. And it shows quite a lot of carnage of the supercar variety.

We’ve already touched on the McLaren P1 being a part of the movie a few months ago. Apparently, the P1 is there alright, together with a slew of other high-priced exotics, like the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport , the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento , and the Koenigsegg Agera .

But what really caught our eye was the untimely demise of the P1, which made us wonder if all those supercars in the movie are actually replicas instead of the real thing.

Now, we wouldn’t put it past Dreamworks Studios and Electronic Arts to get the real McCoys, but if you watch the video and see what happened to the $1.15 million P1, you’re gonna start wondering about the studios plans for these cars.

With the upcoming launch of both the Xbox One and the Playstation 4, a new generation of video games is about to follow. Both Forza Motorsport and Gran Turismo have already released previews of the next-gen versions of their video game franchises.

Now, it’s Need For Speed’s turn.

Just like its predecessors, Need For Speed: Rivals takes a different approach to the usual hardcore street racing involved in Forza and Gran Turismo. Instead, its gamers will be given the opportunity to either play the game as a the street racer or the cop, ensuring that they can experience the thrills of being the chaser or the runner, depending on what suits their style better.

Even better, the cars available for Need for Speed: Rivals will be some of the finest you can ever drive, including the Ferrari F12berlinetta, which has found its way into the game as part of a new partnership with the Italian automaker.

Need for Speed: Rivals will hit shelves on November 19, 2013 and will be available for the Xbox 360, the Xbox One, and the PlayStation 4.

As is Need For Speed’s fashion of releasing new titles and sequels every year, this year we have witnessed NFS launching a sequel to Most Wanted, a title that is considered to be the best and the most visceral NFS game ever made.

Unlike the Hot Pursuit series, the Most Wanted ’05 didn’t really bother with damage or physics. The main goals were to take down the Blacklist and escape from the cops however possible. Most Wanted allowed users to ram through road-blocks, heavily customize a lineup of top brand supercars in its era, and introduced in-game clips that featured real actors interacting with you. Developed by BlackBox, the Most Wanted ’05 was a game that even a non-gamer would enjoy. It definitely was the best car racing game ever made, and, safe to say, is the best even in today’s standards. Even after 7 years have passed since its launch, we’d still play that game and enjoy terrorizing the streets in gleaming, noisy Blacklist cars that we won.

So the big question is, does the Most Wanted 2012 live up to the great reputation of its previous title?

Click past the jump to find out our answer to the above question.

Electronic Arts officially unveiled the new Need for Speed Most Wanted on October 31st, but that didn’t mean the goodies would stop appearing. The company announced today that a new demo version will be released which will offer players the possibility to test four amazing cars: the Aston Martin V12 Vantage , the Porsche 911 Carrera S , the Audi R8 GT Spyder and the Ford Focus RS500 .

Each vehicle will offer its own unique races, challenges, and mods to unlock, and players will get 50,000 Speed Points in the full game just for playing the demo version.

The new demo tracks and compares everything players do against their friends and offers up game-play recommendations and challenges throughout the open world as a result. Players are constantly blazing a trail of high scores not only in their game, but in their friends’ games as well.
