Need for Speed Unbound’s debut trailer has, well, debuted a couple of hours earlier than it was supposed to. The clip – as we expected from yesterday’s first screenshots – is absolutely bursting with style, with cel-shaded character models and bundles of visual effects. These stylised elements all contrast with highly realistic car models and scenery – it’s a really unique look.

The game’s due out on 2nd December, 2022 for PS5 – and it’ll be new-gen only, so there’s no PS4 version at all. “Race against time, outsmart the cops, and take on weekly qualifiers to reach The Grand, Lakeshore's ultimate street racing challenge,” the video blurb reveals. “Pack your garage with precision-tuned, custom rides and light up the streets with your style, exclusive fits, and a vibrant global soundtrack that bumps in every corner of the world.”

On the subject of the soundtrack, American rapper A$AP Rocky is in the trailer – and his song, Sh*ttin’ Me, looks like it’s going to feature heavily throughout. What are your thoughts, then? This is the most personality a Need for Speed game has had in over a decade – but we suspect it’s going to prove divisive among franchise fans.
