Need for Speed Rivals captures the adrenaline and intensity of the street's ultimate rivalry between cops and racers in a stunning open road environment. Built on the Frostbite 3 game engine; Need for Speed Rivals allows gamers play as either a cop or racer; where each side of the law has its own set of high stakes challenges; rewards and consequences. As a racer; the goal is to become infamous for taking risks behind the wheel and capturing your most intense escapes on video for the world to see. The more cops players evade; the more Speed Points they collect; enabling them to unlock new cars and items. Keep raising the stakes race after race to become an ever-more valuable target to the cops -- but risk losing it all if busted. As a cop; players work together as part of a team in pursuit of racers; earning prominence and rising in the ranks of the Police Force with every bust. Achieving higher ranks unlocks new police-only cars and more powerful pursuit tech. At the heart of Need for Speed Rivals is AllDrive; an innovative new online feature that allows gamers to seamlessly transition from playing alone to playing with friends; eliminating the line between single player and multiplayer. Players will have to keep one eye on their rearview mirror as friends will be able to enter and exit races on-the-fly; creating a world where no two events will ever be the same.
