Need For Speed Will Require an Online Connection

According to a few tweets by Need For Speed’s official twitter account, the game will require an internet connection to be played. Apparently doing so will enhance the narrative experience for players because it will allow their friends to enjoy it with them. That, however, isn’t sitting well with fans.

Fans are bringing up the likes of Sim City, The Crew and other online only titles that did poorly because of the online requirements. Only a teaser has been released for the game so far so there is presumably time for them to make changes to that aspect of the game, but few are optimistic as their hasn’t been any word of an offline mode.

Need For Speed will be released sometime this year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
