Need for Speed: Heat added to EA Access June 16th

Posted 8th Jun
To the Need for Speed Community –

Hello, Matt Webster here, General Manager of Criterion Games. First, I wanted to let you all know how excited our team here in Guildford is to be back in the driver’s seat of development for Need for Speed. As you'll know we have real history with racing and with Need for Speed. We're focused on bringing Criterion's unique point of view, unparalleled game feel, and high quality innovations that will chart a new future for this wonderful series of games.

I also wanted to share with you a glimpse of the road ahead, with our first checkpoint approaching quickly. The team has been hard at work to deliver an exciting feature to Need for Speed Heat, which will be in players’ hands tomorrow!

At Criterion, we've always believed that games are better with friends. We don’t want your platform of choice to be a barrier for that experience. So we're thrilled to let you all know that on June 9, Need for Speed Heat will be the first EA title to offer cross-play, meaning that players – regardless of their platform – can jump into Palm City together as one, united community.

Once you’ve installed the update (see full update notes here, including some other fixes, too), you can opt in to race players across PC, PlayStation®4, and Xbox One. You can search for your friends who are playing on any of the above systems, given they’ve opted in for cross-play as well, inside the Find Players menu. Then, go to the new EA Friends tab in the Party Menu to see who’s online to play with.

As we at Criterion shift gears into the future with full focus on developing the next Need for Speed game, this will be the final update for Need for Speed Heat. Since the launch of Need for Speed Heat and as players continue to tear it up in Palm City, we’re listening to what you love about this experience, and what you all believe could be even better. With these insights, we have a terrific foundation to create the most expressive, most socially connected, action-packed game yet for Need for Speed fans and beyond.

As more players join the global Need for Speed community, we also want to provide more options in how the series can be discovered. On June 16, Need for Speed Heat drops into the EA Access and Origin Access Basic Vault*, giving all subscribers the opportunity to enter Palm City.

Another step to connect our players and games on more platforms is the recent release of Need for Speed Heat on Steam, alongside 2016's Need for Speed and Need for Speed Rivals. Keep an eye out at EA PLAY Live on June 18 for more Need for Speed and Steam announcements. Cross-play will work across PC via Origin and Steam, PS4, Xbox One, and subscribers.

You'll know from our past history that we want to bring players together however we can. With this announcement and what we're working on for the future, we're focused on uniting the wider Need for Speed community – so that you can play, race and compete with all of your friends.

We can’t wait to share more details about Need for Speed down the road. Until then, stay safe, and play together!

Matt

I don't understand why people buy EA games and then complain when they come to the Access subscription Just do what I do by waiting patiently to get the best value out of having a subscription.

How? Thanks

To be fair that in itself is a decent game to play so I would still play it. If you're limited on time then this probably, seems to be pretty decent but can't truly vouch for it.
LuFc668608/06/2020 16:08

Seller gave me an option of a 12 month code or 13 one month codes. LINK


IMPORTANT:
** VOUCHERS CAN BE VOIDED FOR FRAUDULENT USE
- I will report it to eBay and Sony Customer Service in case of scam or stolen accounts making the purchase **

Does that not refer to the ebay account?
Like if its hacked or purchased without the owner knowing, then they can void it?

I dunno, it looks great (PS now for under 20 quid??), but I'm hesitant because when something looks too good to be true, it often is

Wasn't the point I was making. Seller not supposed to be or has any authorisation selling codes but will report to Sony if scammed lmao
Just completed this a few days ago - really enjoyable. The story is good, but it's short and ends rather abruptly. Apart from that I was really impressed. I'm playing it through again now and taking my time / unlocking as much as possible before progressing with the story. 2nd play through I'm doing in 1st person perspective with a wheel - it's like a completely different game.

No seller is trying to say that if scammed they can contact Sony to void the code you've entered, that's how I read it anyhow

Nice! Yea me too. I've actually been blocked from entering anymore for 24hrs. I didn't know Sony had a limit per day.

Not what I said. I'm pointing out the temerity of ebay sellers (a private one at that lol)

"Hi Sony I'm selling your digital content on ebay and have just been scammed by someone via Paypal would you please look into voiding their PSNow membership..."

Not sure how much of Criterion are still around from the Burnout glory days to be honest - Didn't most of them branch off to do those weird 'Dangerous' branded games?

While EA are doing Remasters right (C&C), get these guys remastering Burnout 1,2,3 and Revenge into a collection... (Sadly thanks to the soundtracks, probably never going to happen for 3 and Revenge anyway)

my mate used to have the same problem with Xbox Game Pass. he kept buying full price then kick himself when it ended up on there. he doesn't buy full price now for a game and hasn't for months.
