Need For Speed: Rivals' Redview County features "well over 100 miles (16X16 km) of open roads" making it "bigger than" Need For Speed: Most Wanted's city of Fairhaven, Ghost Games has revealed.

Discussing the map on, Ghost confirmed that "the world of Redview County is bigger than Most Wanted and well over 100 miles (16X16 km) of open roads. It is a place designed specifically for driving in the world’s best cars at speeds over 200mph. There are also different shortcuts not shown on the map for you to find."

Ghost also revealed more about the game's unlock system, confirming that players will unlock new cars "every time you complete a Speedlist or Assignment and head back to your Safe House or Hideout", which can then be purchased with Speed Points.

Players can also use Speed Points to purchase different stripes, decals, liveries, pursuit tech and performance upgrades for their vehicles.

"While the narrative helps push you through the game, how you pick your Assignments and Speedlists is totally up to you," said the developer. "As a Cop, your Assignments differ by Patrol, Enforcer and Undercover, and as a mysterious Racer named Zephyr you’ll complete different Race, Pursuit and Drive Speedlists, and drawing the attention of the police force while you’re at it.

"After completing the narrative you can then go back and complete the other Assignments and Speedlists that you haven’t attempted yet."

Ghost revealed that it had taken control of the Need For Speed IP earlier this year, with Need For Speed: Rivals launching on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on November 22. A PlayStation 4 version follows on November 29.
