Need for Speed No Limits teaser 001

Electronics Arts’ newest racing game on mobile, called Need for Speed: No Limits, is now available in the App Store as a freemium download. Created by developer Firemonkeys which brought you Real Racing 3, this new game challenges you to become a reckless yet respected driver.

A stable of sports cars available in No Limits include the Subaru BRZ, BMW M4, McLaren 650s, Porsche 911 and many more. Unlike previous Need for Speed Games, No Limits is big on customization.

“Build your dream ride, drive fast and fearless through the streets, and race for dominance in the first white-knuckle edition of Need for Speed made just for mobile,” teases EA.

In Need for Speed: No Limits, players can race against other real players in Tournament mode, not only to boost their score but win legendary performance parts and exclusive cars, too, such as the Toyota Supra.

You’ll race across more than 1,000 races on the streets of Blackridge, picking up speed boosts in the Nitro Zones, avoiding and outsmarting cops and earning upgrades along the way. Here’s the official teaser trailer for the game.

There’s even a limited-time Snoop Dogg event to take on the rapper in order to win his body kit, livery and a Ford Shelby GT.

As mentioned, customization plays a mayor role in No Limits.

Your garage

This is where the magic happens.

You can make already iconic cars your own with “the most authentic customization in Need for Speed history.” The new garage lets you take a car from its stock appearance and make it awesome with the all-new Need for Speed wrap editor.

Built from the ground up, that editor promises to re-define how you personalize your ride. All told, there’re more than 2.5 million customization combos in the game. No Limits also includes Game Center achievements for your drifts, builds and races, Conversion Kits in Car Series races and more.

The video below shows off innovation in the car customization department.

“Launch yourself between chaos and control as you hit the loud pedal and roll into underground car culture,” reads the blurb. “Win races, up your rep, then kick into more races, more customizations and more cars.”

Key highlights

Among other things, No Limits packs in the following features:

  • Customize extreme rides: Pick up the real-world cars you’ve always wanted, from the Subaru BRZ to the BMW M4, McLaren 650s, Porsche 911, and more. Then trick them out with the hottest customization system on mobile, from spots like the Mod Shop and the Black Market, giving you over 2.5 million custom combos to play with. Your rides are waiting – take them to the stages or streets to go head-to-head versus the competition and prove yourself.
  • Drive fast—and fearless: Steer onto the streets of Blackridge, driving reckless and juiced as sparks fly. Accelerate over jumps and around debris, into traffic, against walls, and through high-speed Nitro Zones. Flip on the nitrous and thrust yourself into another level of adrenaline-fueled driving and drifting. Around every corner is a fresh race as you clash with local crews and local cops. It’s a world full of wannabe drivers – can you stay in front and earn respect?
  • Race to win: Never back down as you race anyone crazy enough to take you on, leave them gapped, and increase your rep. Dig, drift, drag, and roll your ride to wins with police on your tail, hitting each inch of the map hard by the time you reach the big end. Burn rubber in over 1,000 challenging races – and that’s just the starting line. Be notorious, own the streets, and score the world’s best cars. Because one ride is never enough!

As most other freemium games, No Limits is available on a free-to-play basis with In-App Purchases of in-game items like new cars and car upgrades, nitro packs and more.

    I stopped reading at Freemium…

      Amen

    There Must be a Brain on EA that make a “Full game unlock system pay” for the people that want to buy a game and play. So you can play FreeCrapium system if you want… Or buy the Full game… All in one

      Why? those are for profits organizations doing it the way you want would limit their earning potentials. We need to wake up from whatever dream world most of us seems to be living in. 99% of the time organizations are going to make decisions that brings in the most profits, it’s only natural. The crazy thing is how surprise most of us acts when they do. The problem is with us, not those companies.

        In that case, gamers who want a premium gaming experience may as well just quit gaming altogether.

        nonono their earning potential would not be affected because the happy and intelligent people that like to play freemium games will continue playing that nice experience, the company will not loose any penny… but the sad and bad people that want to destroy the market because they just want to play game with a total price (EA’s price) will have and option to ALSO play that game…
        EA wants 100 dollars for the game?… ok… LET ME CHOOSE… don’t miss the people that WON’T DOWNLOAD the game because of the wonderfull freemium system…

      • Toukale

        Really! that’s news to me, since just about every developer tells you asking people to pay $10 up front to even download a game will severely limit your download/purchase numbers, which will effect your bottom line.

        I know some of us keep thinking of this alternative world where that would be the case, but it’s not. There is a reason why most apps/games are freemium with IAP and that is to maximize your earning potential.

  • Freemium my ass!

  • Victor Molina

    Freemium and always need Internet connection to play. I’m not even gonna open the App Store page to see the game details

  • Mayakovski

    If you like racing games where the load times are longer than the races, where the cars all handle the same and where the action is so sloooooow that you can fall asleep and still win the race, then this is the game for you.

    • Quadzilla

      Haha sounds epic!!!!.

      Another wonderful 110% fail on the part of a once decent company.

  • apolloa

    Hmm so seems like I’ll stick with Real Racing TWO still then, I have tried this game for a bit and to be honest, it is beginning to smell the same way as Real Racing 3 does, money money money money money first and foremost.. freemium is fine when it’s sensible, when the pay wall all but forces you to pay for ONE in game car the equivalent or a full AAA console game, then it’s down right theft!
