Need for Speed developers at Ghost Games have outlined what we can expect from the game’s upcoming update.

This is going to be the first update after its launch nearly two weeks ago. The headline feature here is a fix for AI rubber-banding – which we, and many of the game’s fans, found very distracting.

Neons will also be introduced with the new patch.

Find all the changes below. The update is due before the end of November.

  • More balanced ‘AI Catch Up’
  • New Wrap Editor features:
  • Mirror functionality
  • Improved colour picker
  • Hoonicorn and Morohoshi-San Diablo
  • Gifted upon completion of their respective narrative threads
  • First look at neons
  • Early in development version on Morohoshi-San’s Diablo
  • REP increase 50-60
  • 3x Trophies & Achievements
  • New daily challenges
  • x30 new pre-set wraps
  • General bugs, tweaks and improvements

Ghost Games added that a hotfix was released last week on Xbox One to address the stuttering issue.

Need for Speed is out now on PS4 and Xbox One, with the PC version following early in 2016.
