I think they were hoping some people on access premier would make the mistake and still order it beforehand, only to find out it is coming to the vault.

Looks like it, just started playing an hour ago or so
Cool curious to know your thoughts.
It's obviously not a Day 1 purchase given Day 1 has come and gone but still curious.

Odd how hype for this game completely vanished. Haven't even seen the usual IGN or Gamespot review yet.

So far gameplay is cool, I am not a big fan of the my little pony colours .

I also think as game progresses and one upgrade and tune the cars the gameplay will be more enjoyable

So, Origin Premier Access has it currently and its live for early access play...you get the Deluxe edition which gives you a few cars (2 available immediately - Mitsubishi Lancer Evo) and a few that unlock at later rep levels.

Just a quick word, if you dont like the default keys...better configure it before starting the story mode ... it defaults to WASD for driving the vehicle, i personally prefer using the Arrow Keys, as i have gotten used to that over the years of NFS.

Havent played much, but it seems to run quite well for me currently. Back to the old cops vs street racers...and by the looks of the updates/accessories for the vehicles, this is going to get a bit more tech advanced when facing the cops - Kill Switches and kill switch jammers, etc.

Review came out 2 weeks ago. On IGN. Was actually shockingly premature.

It largely depends on what you got used to using. I grew up playing the old NFS games with a keyboard and so even now I'm still very comfortable with it. Only use the controller for games like Forza and Asetto Corsa which require more delicate controls.

Wait turns out it was just a "preview". But essentially he out lines the entire game just as you would expect from a review regardless. Didn't seem much different than the usual sort of video they come out with.

So anybody playing this yet?
Yea plating it since launch.not to bad.feels like an updated payback without the shitty slot machine upgrades.

I did not like the way you have to unlock new cars,parts ect in the start...but now that i have gotten into the game im starting to see what they intended with the game being this way.day time racing gets you the moola,night time street racing gets you the rep to unlock new things.

Damit did not want to throw this on here but hey screw it.add me on origin , Donkiepeel...

This game is laughable, dont buy it.

- No cockpit view
- Camera has a seizure every time you pull off from a stop
- Graphics are garbo
- Handling/drifting mechanics are wack.

I am quite enjoying the game, love the simplistic controls and that drifting has become 'easy' again. I quite enjoyed that style of drifting from nfs underground 2.
Game looks pretty a.f for me, and I must say I am glad they did away with that bullshit 'upgrade' system from payback...

Im really enjoying this one. A big step up from payback and the handling is alot more refined.

A car tuned for grip will never kick out and you arent penalised for having a grippy car instead of the brake to drift like you were in payback. The cop chases are fun too and im not generally into those but the risk/reward for having a successful night racing and banking all that rep was a welcomed addition.

Story is alot less cheezy and alot darker. Graphics look good to me on 1440p ultra i mean its not Forza but still looks great.

All in all they are heading in the right direction again.
