Palm City: That's the name of the city where players in Need for Speed Heat whiz – but after a few streets it becomes clear that the metropolis is more or less directly based on the Miami of the 80s. Heat may be ahead of the next Grand Theft Auto, which, according to various leaks (which may also be fan-made fakes), is also in a slightly modified version of the East Coast city.
In Heat, the players compete in legal races during the day in order to use the prize money to buy a fleet of high-performance luxury sleds. With the carts, you then race at night in illegal underground races for glory and honor, while a highly specialized special police unit tries to pull the drivers out of traffic and take their receipts and cars.
The city of Palm City should be largely open and freely passable. But above all, the Electronic Arts developer Ghost Games wants to give players a lot of options to tune and otherwise customize the cars.
"Our fans have made it clear that they want more cars, more customization and more challenges, and we're going for it in every aspect, from the style of our own character, to the performance of the car itself, to the individual driving style we animate in this new game everyone to be creative ", comments Riley Cooper, Creative Director Ghost Games,
