The newest Need for Speed game was only announced in early October, and believe it or not, launch is almost here! Yes, Need for Speed Unbound hits Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on December 2nd, and ahead of launch, developer Criterion has put together a brand-new gameplay trailer.

Unbound's 'Speed Race' gameplay video delivers a fresh look at the game before it arrives as a current-gen-only release early next month. We have to say, it's looking rather good, and we're excited to see what Criterion can bring to the table after a period away from the franchise.

Still, despite that break, the development team has clearly got the memo when it comes to the series' signature customisation efforts. Unbound looks packed with stuff to change and personalise - you should be able to create just the street racing experience you desire!

Don't forget that the free trial for Need for Speed Unbound comes to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on November 29th, so you've only got a week left until you can dip into the game for 10 free hours!

Are you looking forward to the new Need for Speed next month? Let us know down in the comments.
