There’s a rivalry in the Need for Speed: Rivals trailer

On the highway to hell

Cops vs. robbers — but which is good or evil? Whoa. Philosophy, I think.

While the Need for Speed series’ more recent entries have been hit or miss, there’s always a part of me willing to take a crack at the next one. Rivals, from the former and remnant staff of Criterion Games, looks like it will focus back on the cops vs. racers theme of 2010’s Hot Pursuit.

So long as the EMP and helicopters return, I’m sold, though the revamped car customization looks pretty good too.
