Need for Speed Reboot Goes Gold

The racing game arrives in November.


Yet another big holiday 2015 game has "gone gold." The latest title to achieve that status is the Need for Speed reboot from Electronic Arts and developer Ghost Games.

Writing on Twitter today, the developer said: "We are GOLD! See you on the streets!"

Going gold means a project has completed initial development. It doesn't mean Ghost Games is packing up and moving on to the next thing, as the studio has extensive plans for DLC. As announced previously, Ghost Games has no plans for paid DLC or microtransactions. Instead, fans can look forward to "free content updates" throughout the game's lifespan.

Ghost Games is calling its new Need for Speed a "full reboot." It is due out on November 3 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while the PC edition is coming in 2016. It's the first game in the series in two years; EA skipped a release in 2014, marking the first time it had done so in more than a decade.

For more on whether that year off has made a difference, read our recent preview. You can also check out the game's roster of 51 cars that will be available at launch.

Other games that went gold this week include Fallout 4 and Just Cause 3.
