Need for Speed Heat is goin’ to Miami (well, a fictional version of it)

So the team pulled in some inspo from Georgia's Blue Ridge Mountains, centering Palm City amongst sprawling countryside.

He started by explaining why we're just now seeing a new kind of Infected, even though we seemed to have a pretty good grip on their lifecycle before. “In the first game, there is all this documentation about the different stages [of the infection],” Druckmann said. “Now we have to justify why there are different stages.
