EA announced today that Need for Speed Rivals players would be among the first to experience the upcoming 2015 Ford Mustang. Available today as a free download, players can choose from five customized car designs — four of which were voted from the Mustang Customizer site.
“We worked closely with the development team at EA to provide them with engineering data for the new Mustang, several months before we showed it to the rest of the world,” said Mark Bentley, Ford product licensing manager. “Computer design models enabled the game developers to create an accurate representation of the new Mustang before it goes on sale.”
As an unabashed Ford Mustang enthusiast, this is perhaps the most exciting Need for Speed Rivals news I could ask for. In fact, I exclusively drive a fully-upgraded 2012 Mustang in the game as it is and I’m excited to see how the redesign of the classic car handles — even if it’s not exactly the most realistic to outlet to find that out in.
