Ford Mustang 2015 NFS

For those confused about how EA have managed to get the car into the game so quickly, Ford has given a statement on the Need for Speed website.


"We worked closely with EA to provide engineering data for the new Mustang, several months before we showed it to the rest world. The computer design models enabled the game developers to create an accurate representation of the new Mustang."


Despite the car being available now for free in Need for Speed Rivals, the Ford Mustang 2015 won't actually be available till late 2014, so this has given any car enthusiasts a chance to see it in action within the new NFS Rivals game.


Although the new Ford Mustang 2015 is available for free, it remains to be seen whether any other content will be provided for free in the future. Going by EA's standards, it's likely at this point that there will be microtransactions or future DLC for new cars and content within Need for Speed Rivals, however at this point extra content for the game has not been announced.


We'll keep you updated on any news that comes in about DLC content for Need for Speed Rivals, but in the meantime, If you've got Rivals, jump in game and let us know how the new Ford Mustang 2015 drives.
