Despite constant behind-the-scenes delays for the Need for Speed Unbound reveal, sources have now said that the reveal is imminent. It’s understood the long-awaited reveal will take place within the next 2 weeks.
Rumors have suggested that the reveal will take place in early October, although we are unable to corroborate an exact release date.
Sources have also revealed that Need for Speed Unbound will have a release date of December 2nd, 2022.
It’s understood that the trailer is around 1 minute 30 seconds in length and its soundtrack features American rapper A$AP Rocky.
Need for Speed Unbound has been a hot topic of discussion following leaks of the game showing that the title will incorporate anime elements within the title. Fire, smoke, flames, etc. will all appear from the car as you drift, jump, and crash.
As I reported by eXputer earlier in the year, it’s understood that Need for Speed Unbound will be very multiplayer-focused and feature “meetups”. Meetups will allow people to race against one another in different locations around the map.
In addition, it’s been said that Need for Speed Unbound will feature a unique map that is completely unique to the Need for Speed franchise.
Originally, it was understood that the title was going to be revealed in July, then August, and then September. No official reason has been given for why the constant setbacks, but the reveal date is now on the horizon.
Need for Speed Unbound is scheduled to release on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|s, and PC. No official word has been given on if the game will arrive on past-generation consoles.
UPDATE: Sources have confirmed that Need for Speed Unbound will only release on current-generation consoles.
