It feels great to have a properly good arcade racing game on PlayStation again. They don't come around too often these days, with petrol heads generally favouring more realistic driving experiences. Despite this trend, Need for Speed drops by every couple of years to provide some high-speed thrills and glorious power slides. The series...
If you're not on FF XVI
If you're able to pull yourself away from Final Fantasy XVI on Thursday and you subscribe to EA Play, then you'll have a new PS5 game to play: Need for Speed Unbound. It's been revealed the stylish racer joins the service on Thursday, 22nd June 2023, bringing its arcadey action to anyone who's a member. In our N
Need for Speed Unbound is a highly entertaining arcade racer, but let's be honest, the online multiplayer and post-game experience isn't particularly interesting. That looks set to change pretty soon, though, as developer Criterion has just announced the first post-launch update, called Volume 2. This free game update is a pretty big...
Criterion isn't done yet
Need for Speed Unbound arrived to little fanfare earlier this month. It's a shame, because the PS5 arcade racer is really rather good — probably the best the series has been in a long time. Whether or not you've joined the crew, Criterion Games clearly isn't finished with the stylish street racing title just yet. In a...
EA Play trial begins tomorrow
This year is going out in style with several big releases launching at the beginning of December. Among them is Need for Speed Unbound, the latest effort to revitalise the arcade racer. Featuring a bunch of flashy effects and a new city to burn through, the game certainly looks promising, and it won't be long until we...
Feeling the heat
Update: Well, this isn’t very rebellious, is it? Need for Speed Unbound has been playing it fast and loose on social media, and it’s been drawing attention to the game. However, it seems executives have got cold feet on the strategy, and the account has apologised for its overly aggressive tone earlier in the week. While we...
EA still seems reluctant to show uninterrupted footage of Need for Speed Unbound, but at least this gameplay trailer has a good chunk of actual racing in it. From the clip, we get to see the setup that will precede each race, as you have to buy-in to each event and bet against rivals – and then we see the core, arcade action. In...
Driving you crazy
Upcoming PS5 arcade racer Need for Speed Unbound is fast approaching its 2nd December release date, and we're looking forward to getting in the driver's seat. You know we're getting close to a game's launch day when Trophies start to appear online, and PSNProfiles is here once again with the full list of trinkets. You can view the...
But it ain't bad
We’ve already established that Need for Speed Unbound is way too cool for school, so you can only imagine what its soundtrack looks like. Look, we hate drawing attention to our thinning hair, but genuinely we’re struggling with this list of artists. A$AP Rocky was a given, he’s a character in the game, after all. And we’ve...
New mode shown off
Need for Speed Unbound is just under a month away at this point, and it looks pretty promising from what we've seen so far. A new gameplay trailer has just arrived, this time focusing on a new mode — Takeover. These are replayable events that are all about driving with style to rack up points. Think of it a bit like gymkhana in...
