Need For Speed Unbound leaked and the first images were surprising. So what should we expect from Need For Speed Unbound? The upcoming Need for Speed game will be formally announced by Electronic Arts on October 6, according to the firm, but an early leak may have jeopardized the publisher’s surprise.
Although this page doesn’t seem to be active anymore, EA’s own website supposedly contained a graphic for a game called Need For Speed Unbound. Unbound would not be a surprise as the title, according to a prior rumor. The official revelation will happen on October 6 at 8 AM PT/11 AM ET.
A 90-second video will be used to introduce Unbound, according to a report. According to rumors, the game would emphasize multiplayer and have a “meetups” function that allows users to team up to compete in races.

The new Need for Speed is reportedly being created by Burnout creator Criterion. Leaked gameplay footage revealed some animated features in the arcade style, correlating with rumors that the game would combine photorealistic graphics with anime aspects.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit was remastered and released in 2020 for the Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Through Codemasters, EA also produces the F1, Grid, Dirt, and Project Cars games in addition to the Need for Speed series.
What should we expect from Need For Speed Unbound?
Need For Speed Unbound leakedWhen the new Need for Speed was first announced nearly 2 years ago, the graphics quality was astounding. The production, which was introduced with the image above and announced with a video with a very limited number of images, has been expected for years. For some reason, EA was being secretive about the new Need for Speed. In some interviews, the authorities said little things about NFS and avoided giving details. Finally the game is about to be officially recognized.
Although we expect very realistic images at first, the first promotional images and the leaked images of Need For Speed Unbound look a little different. When we look at the image above, we think that a new Forza Horizon is coming, while the images below tell us no, this is the Need for Speed exaggeration we know.
In terms of gameplay, Need For Speed Unbound is expected to be similar to the Need for Speed Underground games. In fact, the sparkling style of the visuals makes us think that Need For Speed Unbound and Need for Speed Underground are related.
Vehicle modifications will have an important place in the game, as always, but the Forza Horizon series will be taken as an example in terms of style. In other words, vehicle modification will include a certain level of detail. This situation can be upsetting for those who want to completely disassemble and reassemble the vehicle.
So where will Need for Speed Unbound take place? The answer isn’t clear yet, but the leaked images may have given some clues. Maybe Need for Speed Unbound could take place in a fictional city inspired by Japan. However, this does not mean that the steering wheels will be on the right. Judging by the images, the steering wheels are on the left. Of course, the fact that the city in which this game will take place is fiction is only a guess. Maybe EA designed a real city. Let’s face it, that’s less likely.
Finally, in terms of number of cars, Need for Speed has never been competitive. Usually Need for Speeds has around 100 cars. In Forza Horizon 5, which is shown as a competitor, there were more than 400 cars at the launch of the game and it continues to be added constantly. Currently, the number of vehicles in Forza Horizon 5 has exceeded 500 and will exceed 600 in the future, just like in the fourth game.
