All the districts of Need for Speed’s world revealed

The entire city of Ventura Bay, the fictional location where Need for Speed is set, has been detailed.

Need for Speed developer Ghost Games has detailed the six districts that make up the game’s fictional city, Ventura Bay.


Starting with Burnwood, the district housing your garage and spreading through downtown. “Downtown roads connect office and commercial buildings, while on the outskirts the industrial areas and railyard offer an alternative for those looking to take their build out away from the tight inner city layout,” says Ghost.


Then onto Crescent Mountains, which is found to the north of Burnwood. Ghost describes it as having “long sweeping roads that will take you deep into the mountains and give you spectacular views of the city below.”


Between Burnwood and South Port is Royal Park. Royal Park is the city’s residential area and it’s also where the stadium and mall are located.


The industrial part of Ventura is South Port, where narrow roads and the docks can be found.


El Rey is home to the game’s Castle Hill Falls and features mountains and great views. You’ll have to slow down if you want to enjoy it though, Ghost advises.


And finally onto Franklin Terrace, which has a mix of freeway connections and sweeping roads, and provides access to other places in the city.

Need for Speed is out November 3 on PS4 and Xbox One. The PC version follows in 2016.
