Electronic Arts has released the first trailer for Need for Speed Rivals, the latest installment in the long-running NFS franchise.

The new Need for Speed game is being developed by Ghost Games and will be out on November 19 for the PC, Sony PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The next-gen PlayStation 4 and Xbox One game consoles will receive this title sometime in 2014.

This short clip gives us a glimpse of the familiar cops versus racers battle which once again will be one of the highlights in a NFS game. While some will always be fans of the racing franchise, others are still waiting for an innovation since the last few games have been mostly the same.

On a personal note, Need for Speed Porsche is probably the best game of the franchise. Underground 1 and 2 were also a lot of fun thanks to in-depth car customization possibilities, while ProStreet is the least appealing game. Earlier titles will always be remembered and valued since back then there wasn't a lot of competition, but now we do have significantly more alternatives (GRID, Forza, Gran Turismo, etc.) so EA has to come up with something fresh. Maybe next year…
