EA has launched a dedicated mobile companion app for its upcoming open-world street racer, Need for Speed Heat. Available to download now on both iOS and Android devices, NFS Heat Studio allows you to build and customize cars that can be imported to your garage in Need for Speed Heat when it launches on November 8th, 2019.
Creativity and exploration define the NFS Heat Studio app. Swap out car parts, adjust stance, dial in colour, design and apply your custom wrap as you set out to create your perfect ride. Then connect your EA Account to the app and press the “Studio” button in the garage to import your creation into the game.
NFS Heat Studio also features video and image capture tools so you can share your best creations with the world, and in a future update, EA will also introduce an AR car experience in the app – allowing you to drop your creations directly into the real-world. If you ever wanted to snatch a photo of your dream car parked in your driveway, you’ll soon get the chance.
EA will also drop car packs directly into NFS Heat Studio with each passing week, introducing a new selection of cars for players to customize all the way up to the launch of Need for Speed Heat. Naturally, these packs will be free to everyone. In addition, some challenges will also be added to the app as the game’s release inches ever so closer.
NFS Heat Studio has began its rollout across iOS and Android devices, with more supported countries to be added in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, Need for Speed Heat launches on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC this November 8th, 2019. Those who pre-order EA’s turbo-charged street racer in-game via Need for Speed Payback’s menu interface on any format will also get a 10% discount as “a loyalty reward.” Furthermore, those subscribed to EA Access on Xbox One and PS4 or Origin Access Basic on PC can enjoy up to ten hours of game-time from November 5th, 2019 with the Play First Trial, whilst unlimited access will be granted to Origin Access Premier members on the same date.
