Harlem-rapparen bidrar även med ny musik till spelet.

Speltillverkaren Electronic Arts lanserar nästa generations racingspel; “Need for Speed Unbound”. I den nya upplagan av spelet går det bland annat att skräddarsy sina bilar med graffiti och exklusiva tillbehör från några av världens största modehus. Dessutom medverkar A$AP Rocky i spelet, där han bjuder på ny musik med låten “Sh*ttin’ Me”. Kieran Crimmins, Creative Director på Criterion Games, säger i ett pressmeddelande:

“Need for Speed Unbound is all about self-expression, taking risks and disrupting the status quo by just being you – through your racing style, unique car builds, fashion, music and much more. We are inspired to create a truly authentic universe where players see themselves represented in the game. The visual experience of Unbound redefines expectation, with a new signature art-style that brings graffiti to life, intensifies the competition, and creates adrenaline-inducing, high-speed action.”

Spelet har en rad features som erbjuder just friheten att uttrycka dig själv i spelets värld,  med stort fokus på Harlem-rapparen A$AP Rocky. Se spelets huvudsakliga features nedan och beskåda trailern.

* The World is Each Player’s Canvas
“Graffiti comes to life in a new art style as players ride through the city equipped with a brand-new toolkit of high-energy visual and sound effects, like Burst Nitrous, which rewards players with style-based boost, reflecting how they drive.”

* Run the Streets
“The more players race, the more heat they build up. Choose to outdrive or outsmart cops using new escape mechanics to take control of the chase to earn big rewards or even bigger consequences for getting busted.”

* Self-Expression and Style
“Hundreds of cosmetic items including exclusive licensed gear from some of the world’s pioneering fashion innovators and custom automotive gear companies give players endless options to not only kit out their car but show off their personal style in game.”

* Find Freedom in the Flow
“Ride to a genre-defying soundtrack of trailblazing artists from the world of hip-hop led by multi-hyphenated artist, entrepreneur, actor and fashion icon A$AP Rocky and his creative agency AWGE, including the world premiere of A$AP Rocky’s brand new track “Sh*ttin’ Me”.

* Takeover Scene featuring A$AP Rocky
“A$AP Rocky will appear in-game as the leader of the Takeover Scene, a new replayable precision driving mode that brings together the community to take over parts of the city and celebrate driving with style over pure speed. AWGE also functioned as creative consultants on the game.”

“Need For Speed Unbound” släpps till PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S och PC den 2 december 2022.
