Only hours ago we reported that a new NFS game will be shown off at E3 and we've since seen a lot more revealed today.

The game is called Need For Speed: Rivals and is based on the apparent rivalry between cops and  street racers. It is being developed by Ghost Games, formerly EA Gothenburg...

At the beginning of the campaign you will have an introductory race from both standpoints (cops and street racers) and after this chase/race you have to chose between working for the cops or joining the racers.

Both sides will have their advantages, racers will have access to performance and cosmetic upgrades while cops will have brute strength and tactics focused level upgrades.

Racers will lose speed points earned by racing if they get busted, and the more you progress through the game, the more likely it is you will get caught; and the speed points penalty will also increase as you progress. Cops on the other hand will lose repute is they let a racer go. Cops can work in teams of up to 11, allowing boxing maneuvers. Their upgrades will include spikes, EMP and roadblock upgades, to catch those wascally stweet wacers.

EA has acquired a license from Ferrari to use their cars, so we will see around 18 Ferrari cars in the game.

It is being developed on the Frostbite 3 engine in conjunction with franchise creators Criterion Games. Rivals also has a new Autolog style multiplayer management system called AllDrive. This system will allow you to seamlessly transfer from single to multiplayer and back again.

EA has also announced a preorder bonus called the Ultimate Cop Pack. This includes Nissan GT-R police cruiser, some more jammer tech, and extra customisation options.

Take a look at some of the new screenshots released: 

The game is set to release on current gen consoles and PC on November 19th this year, with the  release for next gen consoles coming later. As the game is based on FB3 engine, it will probably not appear on the Wii U.

So are you excited about this new series in the franchise? Do you think you'll play as the wild street racers, or the sleek Police? Tell us below.

Hmm. The Setting of this NFS seems familiar. Looks like NFS Hot Pursuit setting

Yes, this is very familiar to HP.. And I think that HP with car customisation and without that ugly drift would be 200% better game.. But it was a great game anyway.

I don't know about you guys, but I would love to have a simulation street-racing game, I don't think it's been done before, and I don't think there's any franchise to do it better than NFS

you all just have to understand NFS will never go back to "Underground", in the beginning, the very old nfs had no customization and EA seems to choose that way....

I never want it to go back to Underground-I want it to have the flare of the original 6 NFS games. That's all I'm asking for. HP2010 came close, but it was too much like Burnout for me to like it completely.
