As part of Electronic Arts Gamescom briefing today, the developer released a brand-new trailer for the upcoming Need for Speed game in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The video highlights the real world automotive "icons" that EA says have inspired the gameplay and more.

Developer Ghost Games executive producer Marcus Nilsson said in a statement that the studio is "honored" to be working with the icons. Their inclusion helps create a better overall story, he said, which is something Ghost Games has said it really wants to do.
