The team has been working hard on finalizing the June update, and we’re happy to announce it will be released tomorrow, June 9. It addresses the missing vanity items for 100%ing the game and you should encounter DR1005 less often.
We’re also thrilled to announce that cross-play is coming to Need for Speed Heat, allowing you to cruise Palm City with your friends, regardless of platform.
It’s been quite a packed week for Need for Speed, and we have published an article on our website that tells you everything you need to know beyond the update notes.
We switched up the order in which the update is released for the platforms, starting with Xbox, followed by PlayStation and then PC. More info about estimated file sizes and timing at the end of this post.
Now let’s jump into the update notes, starting with the newest addition: Cross-play.
Added Cross-play functionality across all platforms.
Once you’ve installed the June update, you will be prompted with the option to activate cross-play, which you can later find in the privacy settings in the game menu. Opting in will allow you to race players across PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on the same server.
You can search for friends in the Find Players menu. Head over to the Party Menu and check the new EA Friends tab to see who’s online across all platforms. In order to create a party and invite them to your game, they naturally need to opt-in for cross-play as well.
In the game, you will see icons next to players' names, indicating which platform they’re playing on, and you can use the proximity voice chat to talk to them.
We also improved overall stability and fixed rare instances where the game would crash or hang.
