Well it’s EA, they have no excuse, they abandoned the game and didn’t at least try to update it little few more times, be it a pandemic or not, they were planning to ditch the game later anyway so I don’t trust them, the game got so boring after I finished the story, I’m planning to uninstall it after this month, kind of make me wish I didn’t even bother buying it
|In an unexpected, yet not THAT shocking turn of events, it's been announced that development of NFS Heat will come to an end, as Criterion has begun development of the next title in the franchise. |
There will be an update this month, but aside from smaller fixes, there will only be one new addition, and that's Cross-play, a first for the NFS franchise. No new cars, events, or anything else.
But, this does mean one positive thing for the future of NFS, and that's the fact that Heat will lay the groundwork for Cross-play in future NFS titles, which will be implemented from the start, not as an update, like on Heat.
Obviously, this whole global pandemic has had a massive impact on the gaming industry, and it's likely that a lot of planned content had to be cancelled, in order for the next NFS to be even remotely capable of being released on time sometime next year.
Hopefully, we'll get a chance to see what might have been coming for the game, and in turn, what we might be able to expect in the next NFS.
It's like they say, behind every gray cloud is a silver lining. And I'd say that cross-play could be that silver lining, even though it's a shame that there won't be any new cars added to this game.
|F1 will have F1GT/F1LM and a MFG Chav/Ricer kit.This is a reused model from HP2010(since it's a standard F1)Another EA cashgrab|

There's a longtail bodykit so yes.
|Classic McLaren F1 makes a return. I hopes there's a GTR kit for it.|
|...and the two vehicles being released in the March update will be the '19 Aston Martin DB11 Volante (convertible), a variant of an existing car which will be free, and the paid car being the '93 McLaren F1 (VERY excited to see this one back again!).|
Big news for Heat, the March update is coming on March 3rd (Tuesday), and it will add two cars to the game.
No word on what they will be, other than the fact that one will be a completely new car that can be bought with real money, while the other is a variant of an existing car that won't need a cash purchase. They will be part of a new 'Black Market Delivery' feature in the game.
All cars, whether free or purchasable will need to be picked up from a shipping container in Port Murphy, and will have a small narrative attached to them, which includes challenges and such that will get you further rewards, like customization parts for the new car, character clothing, and other effects fitting the car (like neons).
Through the process, you'll encounter new events (races and such) that you'll be able to replay after completing them the first time, adding new events to the map.
You WILL, though, have to reach a certain REP level to get these cars in the game. The free car unlocks at REP level 20, the paid car unlocks at level 30. Of course, most people who have already been playing this game for a while already meet those criteria (myself included, being at level 50).
|Apart from bad drifting system, weird damage system and some weaknesses of story, I have to say I liked this NFS so much!|
Maybe because I didn't play Forza Horizon 3 and 4 yet?
