EA Reveals Terrific Customization Potential In Need For Speed Unbound

Need For Speed Unbound reveals the customization details in the new "Under the Hood."

Need For Speed Unbound reveals several features and details regarding in-game customizations in the latest “Under the Hood.” The game also introduces Legendary Customs that will allow you to transform your car into a one-of-a-kind in Lakeshore City.

Major Takeaways:

  • Need for Speed Unbound releases a detailed guide on in-game customization.
  • You’ll be able to customize your character model and your car to a massive extent.
  • You can also share your car design with others or use someone else’s design from the community.
  • The game is set to release on December 3.

Let’s start with driver customization. You’ll have to select a model and then customize your way out according to your preferences. There are a lot of options available in the driver customization section. You can add face tattoos, makeup, dirt, and even bandages if that’s your type.

You’ll also be able to select the pitch of your voice to add to the uniqueness.

After all that is done, you can get to the clothing section. The game features Brand Collection, which includes all the gear from a single brand if you want to tailor all your gear, focusing on clothing from one brand alone. If you want to mix it up, you can choose the All Clothing section.

The All Clothing section will let you select each part of your gear to make yourself look the best. Need For Speed Unbound also lets you select poses to style on your opponents after every win.

If you’re unsatisfied with your clothing and want to change it up, you can do so by hitting the Safe House whenever you’re not in pursuit.

Now, let’s move on to car customization. Need for Speed Unbound allows you to truly turn your car into a work of art. To access car customization, you’ll have to get to your safe house and select the “Rides” section.

You’ll then be able to choose one of the four options: Style, Performance, Buy and Sell, and All My Rides.

The Style section will include all your visual customizations. In Performance, you’ll be able to ensure that your car is the fastest there is. Buy and Sell will allow you to sell your cars and buy better ones. Lastly, All My Rides will display all the cars in your possession.

The Style section is full of customization features. You can customize just about anything, from the headlights to the taillights. You’ll also have a whole bunch of decals, fonts, street art, and other content to turn your car into a unique beauty.

The game also introduces Legendary Customs. These customizations are a new addition to the Need for Speed universe and will allow you to transform your car’s parts into something unique and dashing.

The game will also include Driving Effects. These effects include Tags that will explode as you ride your way in Lakeshore City. The Driving Effects also feature Samples. These Samples allow you to customize the “audio” of your car. You’ll be able to change the sound of shifting gears, high speed, horn, and many other things.

If you don’t want your car to be too flashy, you can select the “Cloaked” version, a toned-down version of these Tags. And, if you want to reduce the stylized audio, you can choose the “Silent” sample.

The best part of the customization is that you’ll be able to share your custom designs with the rest of the community. You’ll also be able to use someone else’s design from the community as your own. However, keep in mind that community sharing is locked by the platform.

Time for some performance upgrades. The performance section gives the player two choices. You can customize your engine piece by piece or do all of it in one go.

Need for Speed Unbound by Electronic Arts will let you change and upgrade each individual part of your engine. Once you’ve made some name in Lakeshore City and gathered enough cash, you can access several other features, such as the Auxilary.

The race events in the game have a tier system, so you’ll have to ensure your ride fits under the appropriate tier to participate in the events.

The performance section will also allow the players to change the handling of their cars to suit their preferences. You can adjust the handling to be better able to turn those sharp corners or make your car likely to drift. It’s all in your hands, thanks to the awesome customization features of this game.

Need for Speed Unbound is set to release on December 3 on PC, Playstation 5, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X.
