    This year's Gamescom is certainly shaping up to be quite impressive, with the recent announcement of Mafia 3, and loads of developers unveiling thrilling new releases. Most of them just plan to uncover more in-depth details for titles that have already been displayed. Need for Speed will be one of those titles, as EA confirmed they'll be showing off some more specifics for what their reboot will feature. This update will be relayed to everyone during EA's press conference at 12:30 this coming Wednesday.

    All of this considered, there will also be new trailers shown, not to mention that Need for Speed will actually be playable for the first time. Players will enter Ventura Bay, a fictional Los Angeles, where they can choose between five cars to customize before burning out in free roam or testing them out in a handful of events.

    When making a game in a genre that has seen a countless number of titles and individual series, it's undoubtedly a feat to overcome to make the development competition eat your dust. Simply improving overall gameplay, adding newer vehicles or inventing a sort of variation on the classic form of street racing seemingly will no longer cut it in this field of gaming.

    This is where Need for Speed has been showing great potential. It still has the cliché of a knock-off L.A. city, but that aside, it truly has some of the most life-like graphics I've come across, pushing the standard of even the most realistic driving games that we've seen in recent memory, including titles such as Driveclub, Project CARS, and the upcoming Forza Motorsport 6. Proving to rise up above all the rest in this genre will be the ultimate test, and also a thorough analysis, of whether Need for Speed can genuinely improve what we currently consider next generation gaming. I surely hope EA doesn't rush the release or come up short when taking on such a huge responsibility/opportunity to roll out a new bottom line for racing games as a whole.

    Need for Speed will launch November 3rd, 2015 for Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC.
