Need for Speed Reboot Will Require an Internet Connection
Ghost Games’ reboot of Need for Speed will require a constant connection to the internet, as the developer confirmed today on Twitter. When asked about the game, a spokesperson revealed that the internet requirement it’s implemented because it will add “more variety and a more rewarding experience with friends.”, “allow your friends to be part of your narrative experience, something only possible through connected play.” the spokesperson continued.
This means that if you don’t play games while online on either PC, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One, you shouldn’t even bother picking up the new Need for Speed game because you won’t be able to play it anyway. Of course, the main reason behind this decision is not based on the fact that the game is better online, it’s just another excuse to enforce an abusive DRM system.
