EA launches Need for Speed No Limits VR for Google Daydream


Electronic Arts has just released the VR version of its popular car racing mobile game Need for Speed No Limits. The game is now available for Android devices that support Google's Daydream VR.

So, if you own a Pixel, Pixel XL, Moto Z or Moto Z Force, you'll be able to play Need for Speed No Limits VR. Keep in mind though that the game doesn't come for free, so there's one more obstacle between you and lots of hours of fun: $15.

The game comes with up to 60 events across 12 tracks set in 4 realistic environments. To improve the level of immersion, EA included 30 fully-rendered, highly-detailed interiors, as well as stunning visual effects and amazing SFX surround sound.

Among the popular cars that you will be able to drive in the game, there's the Subaru WRX STI, Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, BMW M4 Coupe, and Porsche 911. Each of these cars can be customized with fresh resprays.

In Need for Speed No Limits VR, players will take on rival crews like Flaming Skulls, Marcus King and The Royals. The more races you win, the higher your rep will become.

The only weak spot of the game seems to be the control mechanic. Also, some Pixel owners report that Need for Speed No Limits VR randomly crashed on their phones.

That price though, at least give a 5 minute trial to see if it's worth it.

I rather get a game like this for that price, than pay for a brand name game that is just a 2D running game. Here's looking at you Nintendo's Mario run.

Asphalt extreme looks better and in the settings you can put it up to some insanely high quality. At least for windows 10 desktop/mobile.

Is there a phone that could run such game at 90fps without any drops and latency?

Google Day Dream is a good upgrade over Google cardboard. I am glad such realistic games are finally coming to mobile VR. Playing NFS using a VR may be a great experience. I wish my smartphone was compatible with Day Dream. Here are some great VR apps and games for Google Day Dreamhttp://www.techdue.com/best-apps-games-google-daydream-view-vr/
