Electronic Arts Inc. today announced Need for Speed Rivals, an action/racing game created by an inspired new development team, using a powerful engine and delivering next-generation gameplay, will be available November 19, 2013 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, and will also be released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year.
Need for Speed Rivals is being developed by EA’s newest studio Ghost Games, who bring new thinking and innovation to the Need for Speed franchise in partnership with the expert racing team at Criterion Games. Built on the Frostbite 3 game engine , Need for Speed Rivals captures the adrenaline and intensity of the street’s ultimate rivalry between cops and racers, in a stunning open road environment. Get your first look at the Need for Speed Rival.
In "Need for Speed Rivals", gamers play as either a cop or racer, where each side of the law has its own set of high stakes challenges, rewards and consequences. As a racer, the goal is to become infamous for taking risks behind the wheel and capturing your most intense escapes on video for the world to see. The more cops players evade, the more Speed Points they collect, enabling them to unlock new cars and items. Keep raising the stakes race after race to become an ever-more valuable target to the cops – but risk losing it all if busted. As a cop, players work together as part of a team in pursuit of racers, earning prominence and rising in the ranks of the Police Force with every bust. Achieving higher ranks unlocks new police only cars and more powerful pursuit tech.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced today that "Dying Light", a new first-person, action survival horror video game with a portentous day-night cycle set in a vast open world overrun with zombies, will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in 2014.

Namco Bandai Games has announced that "Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures", a new game based on the upcoming Disney XD television show, is under development and will be coming to Europe and Australasia this winter for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U system from Nintendo.
PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures follows the exciting storyline and charming characters from the highly anticipated PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures animated series created and produced by Avi Arad, acclaimed director and founder of Marvel Studios. The animated TV series, based on NAMCO BANDAI Games’ classic PAC-MAN property, will begin airing on Disney XD this summer. The game revolves around the vibrant universe of Pac-World, where Pacworlders lived in peace until the mischievous Netherworld ghosts, led by their wicked leader Betrayus, escaped from their ghoulish domain to forcibly take control of Pac-World. Pac-World’s only hope lies in the last surviving yellow Pacworlder, our hero with a voracious appetite.
Not only will PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures feature an entirely revamped PAC-MAN universe, but it will also hearken back to PAC-MAN origins with classic elements such as Ghost encounters. The Ghost-chomping mechanics return from the original PAC-MAN but with exciting powered up variations in PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures, creating an innovative yet familiar gameplay experience.
“As one of the most iconic and popular video game character, PAC-MAN has virtually become the symbol of our company” said Olivier Comte, Senior Vice-President at NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe. “As a wish to renew the PAC-MAN franchise and bring it to the new generation of gamers, we are proud to introduce a brand new concept in the PAC-MAN universe, with PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures”.
