    Game overview

    Take on the city by night, tearing through underground street races to build your reputation.

    Work hard by day and risk it all at night in Need for Speed Heat, a white-knuckle racer that pits you against rogue police officers as you fight to earn your place in the world of underground street racing.

    By day, compete in the Speedhunters Showdown – a sanctioned competition where you earn money to customise and upgrade your garage of high-performance cars. Then, when your ride’s tuned to perfection, drive out into the night and take on new competition in illicit street races that build your reputation. 

    By night, however, a rogue task force patrols the streets, looking to crush the underground racing scene. Take them on and risk it all for big rewards or head back to your safehouse to regroup. The roads, the risks and the cars are everything in a street racing scene where your crew is ever expanding, your garage is full of high-end cars and the city is your playground.
