Ahh, remember the days when Need for Speed games were top-notch and racing movies like the original Fast and Furious were all the rage? NIGHT-RUNNERS takes you right back to that golden era. Set sometime between 1990 and 2009, you’ll dive into the gritty world of local street racing crews duking it out for dominance in their neighborhoods and aiming to climb the crew rankings…


You get to tweak your ride down to the nitty-gritty – we’re talking exterior, interior, wheels, engine & how your car handles. Plus the game’s got dynamic character dialogue. Other racers will be all up in your business, commenting on your car, how you’ve been racing lately, any new records you’ve set, and how you’re moving up in the game.


And hey, for those moments when you need a quick refresher on controls, this guide’s got you covered with all the default PC keyboard and Xbox/PS gamepad setups listed right here. Make sure to bookmark this page so you can come back to it whenever you need.
