Recently, we had the possibility to interview Riley Cooper, inventive director at Ghost Games and one of many folks behind the subsequent Need for Speed title. He had some attention-grabbing particulars to share in regards to the recreation’s core mechanics. What’s intriguing to us is how the crew system in Need for Speed Heat will work, as part of its multiplayer.
When requested about what he can share about multiplayer in Need for Speed Heat, Cooper was fast to level us to the Crew System. When the sport formally releases, it’s going to pit you and 15 extra gamers in a single map.
There, you’ll have the ability to forge alliances and rivalries with different gamers. Joining or creating your personal races can be a vital a part of how the crew system works. As a member of a crew, you’ll have the ability to see your comrades’ vehicles and customised characters in your storage. In element, he stated:
By default, you’ll be in Palm City with 15 different gamers (16 whole.) Once there you possibly can invite everybody on the server to affix your races and you may after all be a part of theirs. We even have a brand new Crew characteristic. We’ll put you in a starter crew and you may type your personal as effectively.

Playing in a map of solely 16 gamers implies that there’s a stronger connection between them.
