Need for Speed Unbound is the twenty-fifth installment in the Need for Speed franchise. It will be released for PlayStation 5, Xbox, and PC. If players want to unlock all the cars in Need for Speed Unbound, they will have to pre-order it and get the Palace Edition.
Criterion, the developer, took inspiration from Chicago to create Lakeshore City, the fictional city where the game takes place. The game combines graffiti with more realistic art styles, resulting in some high-quality graphics that only the newest consoles can handle.
There are two versions of the game available for pre-order, the standard and the Palace Edition. Need for Speed Unbound Palace Edition includes four exclusive cars:
- Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series 2020
- VW Mk1 Golf Gti 1976
- BMW E30 M3 1988
- Mercedes-AMG G 63 2017
Players will unlock these cars as they progress in the game. This version also includes cosmetic items and a license plate. The Need for Speed Palace Edition retails for $79.99, the Standard version goes for $69.99.
The standard version includes over 100 cars, including:
- Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio 2016
- BMW M3 2010
- Bugatti Chiron Sport 2017
- Chevrolet Bel Air 1955
- Ferrari 458 Spider 2011
- Lamborghini Aventador S 2018
- Mazda MX5 1996
The game features a combination of sports cars and classics like the Volkswagen Beetle from 1963.
Will Need for Speed Unbound be on PS4?
Need for Speed Unbound will not be available for PlayStation 4. From the footage and gameplay available online, it is fair to say that Need for Speed Unbound has graphics that require a powerful console to perform. The same results cannot be possible on a PlayStation 4.
More developers are now focusing on the new generation of consoles and developing ambitious content. Need for Speed Unbound is one of the first franchises to come exclusively for new-generation consoles, but more will follow.
