Gaming isn't a lonely hobby, and EA wants us to remember that with a new Need for Speed Rivals trailer. The video goes through some of the benefits of using the game's companion app, OverWatch, though EA also helpfully noted that it's "more than just a companion app."
For those who don't know, OverWatch is essentially the game's version of Facebook, letting you stalk your friends and see what they're up to in Rivals. Powered by AutoLog, the app also allows another form of player interaction and unlocks some exclusive content. Fancy, fancy.
Remember when racing games only let you race? Now, you can do social networking while you game, meaning the future is now.
