As previously mentioned, the upcoming "Need for Speed" game is a reboot of the franchise. It is scheduled to come out on November 3 this year in North America and will be available for the Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms.
According to developer Ghost Games, aside from being a reboot, the next installment in the series will require players to always stay online even in singleplayer mode. This is because for the new "Need for Speed" game, the studio will reintroduce an updated version of the Autolog.
In the upcoming game, this system will monitor players' progress and skills. The data collected will then be presented through a virtual leaderboard. Aside from this, the Autolog system will also affect the game's overall narrative.
"We've been pretty big with Autolog throughout the years and, as we know, it's a really powerful feature," Marcus Nilsson, the game's executive producer said according to the PlayStation Lifestyle.
"This time around we're going to give it more of a human voice," he added. "It will treat your friend's play as if it is a part of the narrative experience."
Although the new system will be able to provide a fresh game play to players, NDTV noted that it could also drag down the overall performance of the game.
Through this setup, the Autolog system and entire game will rely on EA's servers. If the servers go down because of either a connection problem or glitch, millions of "Need for Speed" gamers will not be able to play the game.
Hopefully, both EA and Ghost Games will take the necessary steps to ensure a continuous online game play experience for the upcoming game.
