PC Gaming has never been easier

Product Details:

Welcome to Redview County, where a street-racing rivalry between cops and racers never stops as both sides compete in an all-out war featuring the fastest cars, mods and technology in a stunning open-world environment. Play as either a cop or racer, where each side of the law has its own set of high stakes challenges, rewards and consequences. Risk everything in the ultimate high stakes rivalry.

Will You Cross The Line?

Welcome to Redview County, a gritty open road environment where the intensity of the street's ultimate rivalry between cops and racers never stops.

HIGH STAKES RIVALRY

Watch the stakes grow through a new scoring system that lets racers risk their speed points to shoot for higher multipliers and greater rewards, or bank their speed points safely when they return to a hideout. The more risk you take on, the faster you can progress, but get busted by the cops and they take your speed points as a reward. Hundreds of thousands of speed points can be at stake at every turn and at every bust - will you go from hero to zero?

Live the Rivalry

Cops and Racers earn speed points, progress the ranks, and unlock unique cars through distinctive gameplay

Don't come here to race fair

Racers are all-in for personal glory, leaving only exhaust and burnt rubber for their rivals

Have no rules, show no mercy

Cops operate as pack animals collectively locking down their targets

ALLDRIVE

This revolutionary new feature lets you seamlessly join a world where your friends are already racing and chasing. Single-player and multiplayer are no longer isolated game modes. There are no lobbies, no waiting; everything is seamless. You and your friends can all share the same game, same race and same chase. Paths cross and experiences merge: imagine your race and your friend's pursuit colliding creating a world where no two events will ever feel the same. Don't want to play with others? Then simply choose to make Redview County yours alone and dominate the advanced racing and cop AI.

Organized and Organic High Speed Vehicular Mayhem

A living world awaits you filled with an overwhelming amount of speed, races, and chases.

Anything, Anytime

Spontaneously challenge a rival or friend to a race or chase instantly.

Seamless Gameplay

Singleplayer and Multiplayer collide into shared experiences creating the ultimate rivalries.

YOUR CAR, YOUR IDENTITY

Power up your car with the latest upgrades in pursuit technology and personalize your bodywork with fresh paintjobs, liveries, custom license plates, rims, and decals to show off your car to the world. With millions of potential combinations you can save different configurations and keep a variety of car packages on alert to leave your mark no matter the situation.

COPS VS. RACERS

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. Intense racing moments are made even more thrilling with access to upgradeable pursuit technology customized to each side. Racers use this technology to evade cops - using tech such as turbo bursts, jammers and electromagnetic pulses. Cops will be armed for aggressive busts, deploying shockwaves, jammers, and calling in police roadblocks or helicopter support. Each side has a different set of supercars, technology, tasks and career milestones. Switch sides whenever you want to get that car you need, the tech you want, and the role you crave in a progression system that is different for each side.

NETWORK

Network will be the hub for continuing your racing and chasing with access to stats, leaderboards and content uploads direct from the game. Breakdown what's happening in your friends worlds in real time, join groups to team and engage on the forums. Share your progress and images with your social networks. Prep for your next gaming session as you build playlists, and add your latest rivals to your friends list.

Engage with Need for Speed Rivals from the web, tablet, or mobile in Overwatch, a mini-game that connects you with the console/PC game by letting you help or hinder your friends to earn points towards exclusive paintjobs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not my type of need for speed when I first saw this game I thought sweet another need for speed game. and then I thought hope it's better then most wanted. sad truth is none of them are really good. In this game rivals you don't have to search a whole bunch of places for hidden cars. that's the only thing I actually like about this game. pros graphics are great if you got a PC graphics card that can handle them and this game. game play is great but the collisions you do them all the time. your not just slowly working your way through the levels your drop kicked into online game play while your going into the story mode. players are very rud and will stop at nothing to get you out of the way I like how you can go up to a repair shop and boom your all better cons the graphics I've got a pretty good one but it doesn't handle them well on the PC version of the game your dropped into online play you can't just pull up to a hideout and drop all the money that you just made in the game. you gotta stop and that can cost your time and efforts a lot the cops are the same exact way as the racers all you have to do is just bust them not much else. the game your have to do over and over and over again to get the stuff that you want for your cars and that's too much time I'm willing to spend I suggest the next need for speed whould be something on a slim line of need for speed hot pursuit for the PC that game was sweet thanks for taking the time in reading this

Rated 2 out of 5 by from What a waste I was really excited to get this game and well the excitment runs out pretty fast. The game is basically an online single player game. You can have 5 other racers or cops on the map, but there is pretty much no interaction. If you fail to read this you will soon find out that you feel pretty much alone when playing this game. I really wish I would have chosen Grid 2 over this game. The Grid 2 demo demonstrates graphics that look way better along with better gameplay. The only way that this game could be saved is with a patch that allows for you to actually queue up to race other real people. :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good The first thing I have to say about this game is that it's a direct console port. They didn't seem to spend any time optimizing it for PC, so if you have a next gen console, definitely get it there. You don't gain much of anything on PC, no matter how good your rig is (which is why I didn't give a higher graphics score). The game itself is pretty fun. There isn't a whole lot of online interaction between players, since only 6 real people can be on a map at a time, and the map is pretty huge. It seems to disconnect fairly often, which can be jarring at times. This makes it a primarily single player game, unless you intentionally meet up with people. Playing as a cop is less rewarding or frantic than as a racer, since wrecking a cruiser has very little consequence. If you wreck your car as a racer while being pursued, you lose any points you gathered during that road session. If you get way ahead of cops or other racers, the game catches them up to you to make the races more interesting, which can sometimes be frustrating. The race modes are also a bit limited, and there's not really any urban areas on the map. Other than that stuff, it's a solid arcade racer. It's definitely not a racing sim, but if you've played any other NFS games, this one plays about the same. Conceptually, this game is basically a cross between the last two NFS games, Most Wanted and Hot Pursuit, but it is more like HP once the race starts. The cars do allow some visual and performance customization as a racer, but don't expect anything too deep. In my opinion, if you have Hot Pursuit already, wait for this one to come down in price, but it's a good game if you just want a fun arcade racer to play.
