The story will task the player with living a dual life of a racer in sanctioned Speedhunters Showdown races during the day and an underground racer at night. The daytime races are where you will make "Bank" to customize your cars and garage. The underground races at night will see you earning "Rep" as you compete against other Dominic Toretto wannabes. Additionally, at night you will have rogue police officers chasing you as they try to take you down and steal your cash.
Fans are always wanting more from a sequel than what was in a previous game and Riley Cooper, Creative Director at Ghost Games, had this to say on that subject. “We’re delivering more options than ever before for players to be unique and make themselves known. Our fans have been clear that they want more cars, more customization, and more challenges, and we’re tuning up on every aspect. From your character’s style to your car’s performance and your driving style, we’re fuelling everyone’s creativity with this new game.”
