The reboot of EA’s Need for Speed will be out November 3 this year, according to a listing on Xbox.com. EA have yet to confirm a release date for the game and the page was quickly removed, but not before being posted to reddit.

Along with the potential release date some new features are given in the games blurb.

It reads

Discover the nocturnal open world of urban car culture, driven by 5 unique ways to play and win, in this thrilling reboot of Need for Speed™. Carve your own unique path, via multiple overlapping stories, gaining reputation on your journey to become the ultimate icon. • Rich Authentic Customization: Build a car that reflects your character through extensive visual and performance customization. • Five Ways to Play: Need for Speed returns with 5 unique ways to play, Speed, Style, Build, Crew and Outlaw, enabling you to earn reputation and ultimately win your way. • West Coast Urban Setting: Discover a nocturnal open world of urban car culture you never knew existed. Ventura Bay is your urban playground; from downtown, the harbour and the canyons, the city comes alive while you sleep.

According to this, the game is set in Ventura Bay and has a West Coast Setting. Along with the expected car customization the game boasts 5 unique was of playing, Speed, Style, Build, Crew and Outlaw.

EA have described the game as a “full reboot” but from the details given in this blurb it does not seem that EA are radically reinventing the Need for Speed franchise, with nothing really that unique revealed so far. However, E3 is just around the corner so maybe EA will give us the details on why this is being considered a “full reboot” then.

This Need for Speed is set to come to Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC.
