Need for Speed is an open world racing video game developed by Ghost Games and published by Electronic Arts, released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in November 2015, and to be released for Microsoft Windows in 2016. It is the twenty-second installment in the long-running Need for Speed series, and was a full reboot of the franchise. It marks the series’ second eighth generation installment, and was the first Need for Speed title to only be on eighth generation hardware. It marks the franchise’s first return to the import scene and tuner culture focus since the release of 2010’s Need for Speed: World.
The first gameplay footage of the pre-alpha build for Need for Speed was revealed at EA’s press conference at E3 on June 15, 2015. The E3 presentation shows a part of the story, followed by the customization of a Subaru BRZ which showed the new and improved customization system, and the ‘action camera’ which was later to revealed to be one of the five different camera angles. There are five different gameplay types: Speed, Style, Crew, Build, and Outlaw where players can earn points for engaging in to progress in the game through five overlapping storylines. Need for Speed takes place in the fictional city of Ventura Bay and its surroundings which is based on Los Angeles.
Need for Speed has a redesigned ‘Wrap Editor’, and body modifications return to the series after nearly 5 years. The game features real-life tuning companies including RAUH-Welt Begriff, SEIBON, and RTR Mustang. A new ‘Handling Slider’ was exhibited in the E3 gameplay video, which combines the best elements of the earlier Black Box titles’ grippy tires, as well as the drift style of the newer Criterion titles.

Error fixing for Need for Speed with “Xenthor’s Reshade Preset for Need for Speed (2016)”
- WARNING! Before following these steps, it is recommended that you backup your files.
- Download the files from: https://mega.nz/#!0g9glYBJ!VAtL43-JTqsv7S7EzoGf5hSWYMlpgnwjUFY6n4X8lwM
- Extract the file inside your game installation directory.
- Stop Scroll Key toggle the effect on/off.
- Check the link for more informations about it.
Disable Film Filter
Need for Speed has a film grain effect that it achieves via a filter. In case you want to disable the effect, follow these steps:
- Go to Documents\Need for Speed\settings
- Find the PROFILEOPTIONS_profile file and open it with Notepad, or some other text editor
- Change the line that says FilmGrain 1 to GstRender.FilmGrain 0
- Save the file and exit. Now run the game.
Black Screen Workaround
Need for Speed has a black screen crash near the beginning of the game that can make it impossible for users to play the game- fixing this issue is usually a simple matter of making the game run in Windowed mode, but since that requires you to access a Settings menu, and since Need for Speed has this crash right at the beginning of this game, before you even get to a Settings menu, this can be a problem.
- A simple workaround to this is:
- When you reach the black screen, don’t quit the game. Alt-Enter into windowed mode, and let the cinematics play. You cannot interact with the game right now.
- Any time the game asks for a button press, Alt-Enter into full screen- the game will turn into a black screen again. Press the button the game asked for, then Alt-Enter back into windowed mode.
- As soon as the tutorial ends, pull up the map. Select PC Settings, turn Fullscreen to off.
Increase Render Resolution
If you want to increase Need for Speed‘s render resolution without affecting the display resolution, follow these steps:
- Right click on Need for Speed in your Origin library. Go to Game Properties.
- Write -Render.ResolutionScale 1.5 or -Render.ResolutionScale 2.0 in the field box.
- Apply and quit.
Need for speed best cars:
- “BMW M3 Evolution II E30” → In all of its Bavarian beauty, the super rare E30 Evolution II was produced by BMW as a homologation car for the DTM championship back in 1992, with only 500 examples sold worldwide. The E30 is best-known for its enlarged boxy guards, iconic retro styling cues and user-friendly handling characteristics. Powered by a screaming naturally-aspirated inline 4-cylinder engine, it’s lightweight, ultra-desirable and built to race.
- “Toyota Supra SZ-R”→The MKIV Supra was a huge hit for Toyota upon its release in 1992 thanks to its sleek, rounded good looks, superior build quality and planted road manners. But all of that is unimportant compared to the Supra’s twin turbo straight six 2JZ-GTE. One of the best performance engines ever built, the 2JZ is extremely popular with drag racers, drifters and street fiends alike, and with the help of some more boost and perhaps a little nitrous, the indestructible 2JZ is capable of massive power.
- “SUBARU BRZ Premium”→With its fun-to-drive spirit and great handling, the SUBARU BRZ packs a boxer engine that’s just begging for boost. Boasting excellent handling and all-round performance, the BRZ is an exciting, affordable modern sports car, dedicated to the art of driving. With the right customisation, the BRZ is ready to take on any challenge.
- “Ferrari 458 Italia”→The 458 Italia can be considered a completely new car from every point of view; engine, gearbox, chassis, suspensions, electronic controls, aerodynamics, design, instrumentation and ergonomics. Powered by a highly strung mid-engine V8 boasting 562hp, it’s well-balanced and has an exhaust note that’ll please even the sportiest of driving enthusiasts. Beware: this is one prancing horse that can deliver a swift kick on demand!
- “Lamborghini Diablo SV”→In all of its ‘90s retro glory, the Diablo SuperVeloce or SV is powered by a screaming 510hp V12 engine and is instantly recognisable by its sharp, sloping form and outlandish, futuristic styling. This radical supercar comes with Lamborghini’s signature scissor-doors, and its rear-drive layout loves to get sideways.
- “Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR”→The final Lancer Evolution based on Mitsubishi’ CT9A platform, the Lancer Evolution IX MR is powered by a super responsive 2.0-liter 4G63 turbocharged engine that utilizes Mitsubishi’s MIVEC variable valve timing system. With its advanced all-wheel-drive system (Super AYC and ACD), Bilstein shocks, Brembo brakes and Recaro bucket seat, the ninth-gen Lancer Evolution MR is the complete package of grip, acceleration and stopping power.
- “Nissan GTR”→The 2017 the GT-R arms itself with a boost in power, up to 570HP, as well as refreshed and more functional aerodynamically-sculpted exterior. With brutal acceleration and physics-defying handling it continues to be at the top of its game.
