Need for Speed: Heat Becomes the Most Played Game in the Series this Generation

Need for Speed: Heat is a big hit with gamers

By Grayshadow, Posted 20 Nov 2019

The Need for Speed franchise hit a slump with Need for Speed: Payback with the game's heavy monetization and lackluster options. Need for Speed: Heat has had the opposite reception with many loving the game's return to dedicated street racing and customization. So much so that its' the most played game in the series this generation.

There have been 3 games before Need for Speed: Heat. Starting with Rivals having positive reviews, followed by Need for Speed receiving lower scores but still have a positive reception, and then lowest received game in the series Need for Speed: Payback.

It's relieving to see the series take a sharp turn from the previous installment. Focusing more on driving than on constantly charging the player for random rewards. Similarly, EA published the recent Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order which has been receiving a lot of praise. With myself considering the best Star Wars game in years. Maybe EA has finally turned or this is a 1-off thing to make us forget.

Need for Speed: Heat is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
