Video games galore – Need for Speed and Forza Motorsport 6 revealed

Snapshot: EA Games and Turn 10 Studios have released the gameplay trailers of NFS and Forza Motorsport 6 respectively. Both games will be released later this year.

At the ongoing E3 conference, two of arguably the biggest racing game titiles have received their successors. The new Need for Speed (or just Need for Speed, as it’s called) caters to the arcade gamer, brings along a huge list of lust-worthy items (and a fitting collaboration with Speedhunters and other prominent names in car culture), and appears to have taken the NFS Underground theme very seriously.

The Forza Motorsport title is very different in that regard – it’s not available on multiple platforms like the NFS, is less of an arcade game, and to top it all it features real racetracks, so is a better tool for honing one’s track driving. But there are no real comparisons here, these are two very different games but will be launched close to each other – NFS comes in November while Forza 6 is out in September.

Need for Speed features age-old NFS features like customisations, and street driving in the night. And let’s not forget cops! The other noteworthy thing is the presence of five silhouettes, probably denoting the 5 ways to play the game – Speed, Style, Build, Crew, and Outlaw. Mentioning any other detail would be doing injustice to the game trailer, so watch the video below instead.

Coming to the Forza 6, it will be available in 1080p resolution, offering the larger than life action at a smooth 60 frames per second. There will be more than 450 cars (each of which feature detailed exterior and cockpit views, full damage, and things like working doors, headlamps, and even gauges), 26 of world famous tracks (including the ‘ring and Spa, if you’re particularly interested in those), and of course, the new Ford GT, too.

And while NFS offers cars like RTR Mustang, Nakai san’s RWB Porsche (type 964), Rocket Bunny kitted GT86’s, and even a Porsche 911 Carrera RS with ‘Walker’ reg plate (referring to the 'Urban Outlaw' Magnus Walker), Forza offers a little more serious approach towards gaming, no cops, and the ability to drive a multitude of cars around real-world race tracks.

Now with an increasing number of serious racing simulators being available, it will be interesting to see how the fun-oriented NFS and the Xbox-inclusive Forza 6 carve their niche.
