Need For Speed: Rivals will feature similar gameplay to 2010's Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, with exotic cars and high-speed police chases. Players take on the role of a racer or a cop, with each side of the law offering its own set of challenges, risks and rewards. Rivals will feature 11 upgradeable gadgets such as EMPs, shockwaves and the ability to call in roadblocks. The game takes place in a fictional location known as Redview Count, an open word map that's host to scraps between cops and robbers. It's an open world and will feature a similar set-up to 2012's Most Wanted, with chock-full of jumps, speed traps and unlockable cars.

The game uses Autolog, the competition-between-friends system developed by Criterion for Hot Pursuit, and since used in other titles in the Need For Speed series. It will let players compare stats and challenge friends anytime, anywhere and share the accomplishments with both friends and rivals. Rivals features a new social system called AllDrive, which allow players to seamlessly transition from playing alone, to playing with friends, described as "destroying the line between single player and multiplayer".

Rivals will also take on a little gameplay style of earlier "Underground" titles in the franchise for cues on aesthetic vehicle customizations, as performance upgrades, paint jobs, decals, rims and license plates can be modified.
