The Team At Ghost Give Us A Glimpse

On Wednesday February 3rd, Ghost Games is going to be releasing the newest update for Need For Speed - the reboot of the quickly failing franchise. This time around all the DLC is free, which is an odd move to Electronic Arts, but an extremely welcome one. Okay I'm done yapping, here's what's in the newest update!


From needforspeed.com

Snapshot Pro [aka Photo Mode]

...we’re introducing Snapshot Pro, a mode which will allow you to create some stunning photos of your favourite car.


Hit start to get to phone screen, then select Snapshot Pro from the phone menu. You’ll then be able to manoeuvre the camera around the car, apply a number of custom settings such as depth of field, brightness, contrast, vignette, saturation and more. You’ll also be able to apply a number of pre-set filters, allowing you to achieve great results in a very short amount of time.


...we can’t wait to see what you do with it!


Wrap Sharing

...we’ve constantly been blown away by the talent and creativity being shown by the Need for Speed community when it comes to wrap creation. We’ve seen wraps inspired by past NFS games, comic books, films, and much more.


Wrap Sharing has been one of the most requested features to date and because of this we’re adding a new option within the Paint and Wrap section that will allow you to browse and download wraps shared by other players. If you’re a wrap creator then simply mark your creation as shareable and it’ll show up for everyone else.


Downloading and applying a community made wrap is as easy as heading into the community wrap section in the 'Paint and Wrap' section, finding one that you like and hitting the download button. Once downloaded you'll then be able to apply it to your ride and even edit and tweak it should you wish.


Customization Items

Customization continues to be something we see you talking about and requesting more of, which is why we’ll be following in the footsteps of the Legends update and adding another 100+ new customization items in this update.


In total, eleven new cars will be getting new parts:

Ford Focus RS

Chevrolet Camaro Z28

BMW M3 E92

Ford Mustang Boss 302

Ford Mustang Foxbody

Ford Mustang GT

Mazda MX5 (2015)

NISSAN 180sx Type X

NISSAN Silvia Spec-R




Want to test your skills against other people? We've added a “Competitive” option at the front menu which will see you placed in a game with other players who are also looking to race competitively. Or, select “Alldrive” and you can experience Need for Speed as it is now.


License Plates

You’ll now have the option to customize the license plate on your car, giving you even more options to personalize your ride.


You’ll be able to choose from a selection of backgrounds from past NFS games including; Redview, Fairhaven, Palmont City, Rockport, Olympic City, Bayview and Tri City Bay. Alongside the backgrounds you’ll also be able to apply a number of frames to complete the look.




Gas Stations

Players of previous NFS games will be familiar with the gas stations and their ability to repair your car. Something we heard directly from you, the NFS community, is that you wanted this functionality brought back. You missed the option of having your car look new again, instead of having to wear the scars of racing until you ventured back to the garage.


As such, all gas stations in Ventura Bay will now repair your car, free of charge. Simply drive your car through the station and it’ll be looking as good as new. And to help you out further, we’ll be adding all gas stations as points of interest on the map.


New Trophies and Achievements

Three new trophies and achievements will be added to the game, go out and earn them all:

Filter Addict - Take a Snapshot with a Filter in Snapshot Pro Mode

Wrap Artist - Share a Wrap with the Need for Speed Community

Climbing the Ranks - Reach Monthly Rank 10 by completing Daily Challenges

We'll be seeing you on the streets, kids! Tell us what you think of the update!

We are BIIIG fans of photo modes in games and want every game to have one, yes even that one. And we hope that you will come on by the forum and share your outstanding pics you have captured with this new mode.
