This is not the direction that release dates typically move in, but we’re more than happy to report EA has brought the PS4 launch of Need for Speed Rivals forward by a week, to coincide with the U.S. launch of the console.
Jessica Damerst, EA community manager, explains:
We’re stoked to be the first racing game on PS4, and believe we’re setting a new bar for driving gameplay and visuals. PS4, coupled with the Frostbite 3 engine, will give players unparalleled next-gen gaming – epic locations and vistas, stunning time of day and weather changes, and super high fidelity cars.
For those of us who aren’t in the U.S., we’re remarkably unaffected – Need for Speed Rivals is scheduled to launch in most places on November 15 alongside the Xbox One and then on November 22 for PS4.
