  • Speed Cards are completely removed
  • Off-road is gone
  • Graphics look better than Payback and is on par with 2015. You’ve got water on the road, reflections, that kind of thing
  • No Day/Night cycle. Time of day is dictated by which races you get into
  • Rain is confirmed
  • Classic NFS-style cop chases are back and are in free roam. They have heat levels, helicopters are returning to free-roam chases and there’s no speedbreakers.
  • Damage bars and petrol stations are returning from Rivals
