With NFS Heat Studio, you’ll be able to customize cars just like you would in the game - swapping out new body parts and even designing your own livery. Once the game launches in November, you’ll be able to import cars you’ve design on the app straight into the game!

You’ll also be to drop your creations into the real world using the app’s AR car experience, which won’t be available at the launch of NFS Heat Studio but will be available shortly after.

You’ll also unlock new special cars each week the more you play, with this weeks special car being the Polestar 1.
