The latest entry in the award-winning Need For Speed series will allow video game racing enthusiasts the chance to thoroughly experience the thrill and depth of driving the most storied and technologically advanced sports cars in the world from Porsche's extensive 50 year history. Staying true to Porsche's philosophy of building performance cars that could be raced competitively, as well as put through their paces on city streets, players will be able to drive Porsche's historic and future line-up of models starting with the 1948 356 Roadster to the newest 2000 996 Porsche Turbo. Additionally, players will be able to experience some of the most famous Porsche racecars from over the years.

Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed also boasts two new modes that will enable players to drive and race the Porsches of their dreams either in exciting racing situations to progress through a career or in open road situations that rewards them for pushing the cars to their limits.

Key Features

  • Two new gameplay modes:
    • The first mode features mission-based driving including rewards for highlighting your driving abilities (360-degree turns, etc), as well as dealing with challenging situations such as when police appear.
    • The second mode is a deep career mode that progresses through time. Cars need to be purchased and can be upgraded through performance and aerodynamic modifications. This mode takes place within a working economy simulating supply and demand as well as factoring in inflation. A car's history will be tracked affecting its future value. Additionally, car parts need to be repaired and maintained.

  • The new gameplay modes are complimented by a series of quick, fast-paced single-race modes for instant gratification. Up to four-player on the PlayStation via the multi tap and multi-player support on the PC supported via LAN, Modem, Direct Link and up to eight-players over the Internet through a new distributed server model.

  • The PlayStation version will allow gamers to race in five countries with the capability for up to 40 segments using the new "grid based" track technology, which allows for more realistic city environments with multiple routes.

  • Four-point physics model that simulates the subtleties of each car model, car upgrade, detailed car settings and damaged car parts.

  • Over 80 historic and future Porsche models players can race in the PC version and over 50 on the PlayStation. A damage model is incorporated to affect both car's performance and appearance.
