Don’t worry, you can turn off comic effects



Don't worry, you can turn off comic effects

NfS Unbound relies on a distinctive graphical style.

Last week, after much rumour, EA finally pulled the cat out of the bag. A new part of the popular racing game series for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC will be released later this year with Need for Speed ​​Unbound.

It takes us to the fictional town of Lakeshore, where we have to participate in various races with our inflated carts in order to finally be able to participate in The Grand tournament. Along the way, of course, many other parties want to spit in our soup, including various opponents and of course the police.

Comic effects off or on? Criterion gives you the choice

So far, a lot of things look like a classic NfS, but the graphical style is definitely not. Because developer Criterion relies on a mix of realistic looking and comic/animated elements. Effects such as smoke caused by spinning tires are therefore presented “artificially”, leading to a rather unconventional style that has not been seen in the series before.

But not everyone likes these comic elements. Even when the game was rumored to haunt, the look was controversial. And apparently Criterion noticed this thread, as it’s now been confirmed on Twitter that you can optionally disable the mentioned effects in-game.

So, if you want, you can cross Lakeshore without comic elements, so the look of the game should then be much closer to that of older games. This message has already been well received under the tweet, as evidenced by the many replies “Thank you!”.
