Saw Need For Speed Deluxe(2015) is on sale for $14.85 for Xbox Live gold members.

There standard edition is $13.20.

Attention EA Access members, Need For Speed(2015) should be in the vault today.

Deluxe from what i can see provides an additional starter car option a 10% in game credit discount and additional performance and style packs. Given the <$2 difference, it sounds like an excellent deal. Alas the upgrade is not on sale and I'm sure the vault version is the standard edition.

Also saw Need For Speed Rivals Compete is on sale for $9.90(base game is in EA Access vault).

Having played a trial of Need For Speed(2015) and base game Rivals, you're better off not getting Rivals imho. Need For Speed(2015) honestly let's you tune up and tweak cars so well that it doesn't feel like you're going to be forced to buy ever more prayerful cars, instead just upgrade your ride. Rivals though felt like you had to constantly upgrade to a new vehicle to make progress. Though Rivals does let you be the police and there is enjoyment in chasing down a racer and beating them till they can't move.

I'm guessing these are part of this week's deals with gold, but that page won't refresh for me to see other deals.

Both from what I can tell. By default it will try to log you in to an already open multiplayer world with potentially other players already present, but I've seen a setting that should only have you run single player (never used). In fact in Rivals(maybe 2015) the hosting is done by one of the players own Xbox. If the host quits then the game migrates to another player present to host, during this time the game freezes so if you're in the middle of a race you'll have to be ready to resume at a moments notice. However, this sometimes caused the game to crash for me. During my trial of 2015 I ether got lucky and never had a host drop or EA may host the world instead.

All that said, even in multiplayer, you are in no way required in either of these games to race real players or even be in the same part of the map. Most racers you race are NPCs. Note the real players are more noticeable as they'll have their Gamer icon above their car and on the maps. You can also easily invite real players in game to map events. If they accept they teleport to you automatically.

If you like racing games, Need For Speed(2015) is excellent imho. Though can't say how it compares to Forza. Rivals is okay, but pales in comparison since 2015 let's you customize your car so much that you shouldn't feel like you have to give it up the minute you can afford the next best ride(Rivals feels that way imho).

Thanks and repped for your reply!

Does either game have in game dlc purchases or are they both complete games? I read something about "in-game currency" in the 2015 game. What is the currency used for?

I played rivals and I liked it the way they integrated multiplayer into the story mode. But I am seeing lot of negative reviews on this one - like the gameplay is similar to the old nfs underground

They both have DLC. Rivals is mainly new cars from what i can tell and the Complete edition(linked above) includes all. 2015 on the other hand from what I've seen only has one "DLC" and it's bundled in the deluxe edition. There is a seperate purchasable Deluxe upgrade, but it's not on sale.

Both games have in game currency for buying new cars and upgrades. Rivals is very limited on upgrades and some vehicles have higher limits on theirs. You earn credits in both games from completing various events across the maps as well as performing various stunts/maneuvers(not as much as you might get from events). For Rivals, an extra layer is in place where Racers only get to keep their credits of they don't crash out before reaching a hideout, police always keep theirs.

Never played Underground, so it's very possible that it is similar. Last Need For Speed I played before Rivals was way back at NFS 2 or 3. I remember wanting Most Wanted so i t think 2. That said 2015 is identical to Rivals on the story mode integration and it's an open world as well. Honestly i think i saw one reviewer that mentioned the Underground comparison and that this was intended as a reboot of NFS franchise. Either way, I did like Rivals, but once I tried 2015, I really didn't feel like playing Rivals anymore. Was waiting for a sale and it comes same day that it was added to the EA vault, so I'll be saving my money because of that.

Thank you again Smilie. As long as there is nothing extra to buy each game seems like a very good deal.

You're Welcome! I'm doubting it'll go GwG anytime soon due to it just entering the EA Access vault, but you never know.

You're Welcome! I know the pain there, grabbed Lego Batman 3 Deluxe in last week's sale only to find out there is one DLC not included in the bugger and it's not on sale.

Agreed, a beauty of a game! Some of the car wraps that have been put together are just
awesome looking! As for PC, I saw a claim that they put NFS 2015 in Origin Access vault, the PC version of EA Access. I think that runs about $30 a year also, but you don't get too keep the game once it expires.

I bought both of the NFS games. I had about $15 credit from bing searches so I only paid about $11 for both. I think I have a problem laugh out loud
