Need For Speed ​​Unbound players can customize their driving VFX

In a new Need For Speed ​​​​Unbound blog post, devs Criterion highlighted the art style and special visual effects emitted by in-game vehicles. Called “tags”, these driving VFX manifest as graffiti-like art around the lines of cars – activated by players activating boost powers.

Players can earn power-ups by performing specific actions such as jumping, drifting and more. “Need for Speed ​​Unbound’s realistic-looking world and cars really help ground the visuals,” said art director Darren White. “Taking inspiration from street art and other mediums, we creatively subvert characters and visual effects, turning them into expressionistic illustrations of ‘you’ and ‘your actions.’ It’s literally graffiti-come-to-life.”
