Developer Criterion Games and publisher EA Games have released a new gameplay trailer for the upcoming arcade racer, Need for Speed Unbound. The gameplay offers a glimpse at an adrenaline-fuelled speed race and a closer look at how the game’s world and vehicles look and play in-game.
The speed race gameplay trailer for Need for Speed Unbound arrives a couple of weeks before the game’s release on 2 December 2022. Marking a big departure from the tone of previous titles in the series, Unbound is going for more stylish, over-the-top racing with exaggerated animated effects bursting around cars during gameplay. Thankfully, it doesn’t appear to be too distracting in the gameplay trailer as most of those elements are still dressing on top of the main focus being on the racing itself.
