Welcome to Redview County, where a street-racing rivalry between cops and racers never stops as both sides compete in an all-out war to take over the social, local and national media and earn the best cars, mods and technology. Risk Everything. Trust No One.

KEY FEATURES - High-Stakes Rivalry – Racers are lone wolves out for their own glory; driving agile cars built for high speed racing and epic chases. Cops work in teams to hunt down and bust racers using the full power of the police force. Switch roles at any time and watch the stakes grow in an all-new scoring system that lets you put your speed points on the line to earn even greater rewards.

All-Drive – New in Need for Speed Rivals, All-Drive destroys the line between single player and multiplayer gameplay. Seamlessly join a world where your friends are already racing and chasing. No lobbies. No waiting. Paths will cross as races and pursuits collide, creating a world where no two moments or events will ever be the same.

Your Car, Your Identity — Power up your car with the latest performance upgrades and technology, and personalize your car with fresh paintjobs, liveries, custom license plates, rims, and decals to show off your style to your friends and rivals. Save different configurations and keep a variety of car packages available to leave your mark no matter the situation.

Pursuit and Evasion Tech — Intense racing moments are made even more thrilling with access to technology and upgrades customized to each side of the law. Racers can choose evasion technology from jammers to electromagnetic pulses. Cops are outfitted for aggressive busts with shockwaves, roadblocks, helicopter support and more. No matter the side you choose, use technology to keep you one step ahead of your rivals.

    Is there really no interest in this? The game is absolutely fantastic. I've got it on PS4.

    Picked this up on PC as well. While I miss finding jack-spots scattered throughout the city (at least, if they exist, I haven't found any) and get frustrated at losing over 200k worth of speedpoints due to wrecking during a pursuit, I must admit Rivals is definitely giving me flashbacks to a LOT of things I would do in Need for Speed 3: Hot Pursuit.

    One thing I've learned, though: do NOT deploy shock mines when your intended target is riding your bumper. As it turns out, there's a bit of an area of effect to the mine detonation (it wiped out about 40% of my endurance bar).

    I have it on PS4.

    I like this game, but the fact that you're only playing with 6 people in the world at a time and there's no good way to really meet up and play together means I spend most of my time driving around playing solo.

    See, I'm one of those anti-social gamers (I'll only play if it's with people I know...or with other of you fine PA folks), so I restrict my game's access to invite-only and spend most of my time doing what I did in Most Wanted: drive around and explore the area.

    The game is essentially Need for Speed: Dark Souls Edition and I love it. Mostly played as a Cop, which has helped to just learn the various routes for the gameworld. This helped a LOT when I hopped into Racer mode, and just busted out into 100k++ points in a single run.

    I lost it all cause I did something dumb but still.

    I've got this on Xbox One, gamertag is TPSou - I'm having loads of trouble actually finding populated games lately so if anyone is up for joining for a crime spree or crime-stopping spree this evening (GMT) please let me know!

    I bought this on impulse after being a little annoyed with the lack of games on PS4, frustrated because I spent $60 for Knack and dissatisfied with the face simulator that is Killzone. Wasn't expecting NFS:R to be good, but it is good. Some caveats, but one of the best arcade racers I've played in some years. I really love the SP banking system, really adds excitement to the game.

    Any other Racer High Rollers out there? I bank nothing less than 500,000 - you mad cops?
