Need for Speed Rivals for PC / Windows is another installment of a well-known racing series published by Electronic Arts. The players can pick one side, i.e. racers often violating speed limits or police units with super cars to chase reckless drivers.

Choose the racing career and avoid chase and score points that enable purchasing new and better cars, as well as modifications improving their appearance and performance. If you are caught by the police or you completely destroy the vehicle, you lose your newly gained points. Become a police officer and cooperate with other players to catch “speed kings” and earning a higher rank, i.e. access to new models of police cars.

The common element of both careers is acquisition of various technologies useful while escaping or catching the speeders. List of available technologies includes firing EMP charges, calling police helicopters, stingers or supercharged engines guaranteeing sudden increase of power.

One of the most important components of the new version is All Drive module. Players can switch between single and network mode without losing progress in the campaign. This mode connects offline and online mode which is the core mechanics in Need for Speed Rivals for PC / Windows.

The game runs on well-known Frostbite 3 engine used in other productions published by Electronic Arts and provides exceptionally detailed and realistic environment. You race in Redview County packed with cities, highways, forests, deserts, and even mountain areas. Player can explore the game world freely, finding special locations where certain actions may be triggered (e.g. speed cameras enabling you to break speed records). The cars are presented in a very detailed manner. It is worth noticing that Need for Speed Rivals for PC / Windows includes again Ferrari cars, e.g. F12 Berlinetta.

System requirements

Recommended: Core i5 2.5 GHz, 8 GB RAM, graphic card 3 GB (GeForce GT 660 or better), 30 GB HDD, Windows Vista(SP1)/7(SP1)/8
