With all the excitement over Forza Motorsport 5 and Gran Turismo 6, it's easy to forget that there's another racing game from an even older franchise coming out. The latest Need For Speed installment, Rivals, is set to hit stores November 15 (this Friday) for the Playstation 4, November 19 for PS3 and XBox 360, and November 22 for the XBox One. As part of the run up to the launch, we have a great look at all the new Ferrari content for the new title, which marks only the second time yet another appearance of the Italian marque in an NFS game.

The last time we saw a prancing horse in Need For Speed was 2009's Shift, when Xbox 360 users got ten models as part of a paid, downloadable pack. The last time we saw Ferrari integrated into the action at launch, was in 2002's Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2. In anticipation of Ferrari's return to the series, we've got a gallery of images of some of the featured models, like the F12 Berlinetta (which we've shown you before), the FF, the Enzo, the 599 GTO and both the 458 Italia and Spider. All of which are bound to make for phenomenal tools for escaping the virtual cops.

We'll have a more extensive look at Need For Speed: Rivals in the near future, but until then, have a look at the game's Ferrari content up top.

UPDATE: As many of you point out, the appearance of Ferrari in Need For Speed: Rivals is far from just the second appearance of the Italian marque in the franchise. We were slightly mislead on this point in notes given us by the NFS staff, who meant to point out that this is the first appearance of Ferrari in the game, across all platforms, since 2002. Thanks to all of you that caught the slip up.

        Those were the best NFS games. When I look at what they've released since (like The Run) I shake my head. What happened? I don't know much about Rivals though, so I can't comment on that one.

      This game looks like you are playing bumper cars when you watch the gameplay videos. I'll pass.

      I am sorry but that is simply incorrect. I don't have a count but I can name a 3rd already. Need for Speed 2 had not only an F50 in the game but on the cover as well. Pretty sure High Stakes had more than one Ferrari as well.

        Even before that NFSI had a 512TR NFS II had the F50 and the 355F1 NFS III had the 550 Marenello, 456M GT, and 355F1 Spider High Stakes had the F50 again, 550 Maranello again, and the 360 Modena

          High Stakes was fun. I miss the police chase mode in that game! So many memories :-D

      "which marks only the second time the Italian marque has been in an NFS game." Ferrari was in NFS 1, 2, 3, 4, and even IV.

      Call me crazy, but it looks like the addition of Ferrari is about the only thing that keeps this from being EXACTLY the same as 2010's NFS:Hot Pursuit.

      the last Need For Speeds have blown except for Hot Pursuit in 2010, other than that they've all sucked last amazing one was Most Wanted back in 05, High Stakes is still one of the greatest NFS's shame they've fallen off so bad

      Need for Speed Underground 2 had in my opinion the best handling of all NFS games. Since Most Wanted they've become continually worse and worse. In the latest installments of the series you can take corners by drifting at 150 Mph. I don't want a strict simulator but I don't want this joke either. Underground 2 still remains the best combo of simulation and arcade. I'm sorry but this series just keeps getting worse.

        I forgot to mention how sad this makes me. NFS is part of many happy childhood memories. Many years ago ( around 2004) I used to believe video games will only become better and better. Somehow I'm disappointed because, even though I enjoy the old ones as much as I used to, I don't find much joy in games of recent years. Don't know why. They just don't deliver as much emotion and freedom and just feel like watching a movie. Metro is the last good game I played.

          and The Last Of Us on PS3! Those are really remarkable games. The games I ever played actually. And you are totally right. The gaming industry has become more and more mass oriented and the games are being watered down heavily lately. :/

      I haven't play videogames in such a long time. Am I missing much?
