Is Need for Speed Unbound open world?
We also know that there's a huge car list available, as well as rapper A$AP Rocky playing a role in Unbound's story.
Something that isn't clear though is where Unbound is going to be set or if it's an open-world game. NFS titles are normally open-world, giving you the freedom to explore the city that you're trying to take over.
By our count, it's been over ten years since the last NFS that didn't have an open-world map to explore.
It would be very out of character for Criterion to not make a map to race around in NFS Unbound. That gets even more convincing when you realise that we may have already seen the game's map.
Thanks to an alleged leaked map on Reddit, the map for Unbound might already have been revealed. If the above image is legit, then we could have the biggest NFS map ever available for us in December.
We don't know what this city will be called, but it could well be true. Given that it looks as though there are street races and cop chases in Unbound, we think it's definitely possible this map is real.
Even if it's not, it's going to be more than likely that Unbound is an open-world racing game. After all, a game titled "Unbound" shouldn't place restrictions on its players.
