The Need for Speed Unbound map consists of Lakeshore City. It’s a coastal city that has a downtown city centre full of skyscrapers and jam-packed traffic. Due to its location next to the ocean, there are numerous large inlets with bridges over rivers and highways that lead out of the city that are perfect for testing the top speed of your car.

Once you’re out into the rural areas, you’ll find mountainous terrain where you can put your drifting skills to the test. One of the best areas for doing this is the Kennedy Drive mountain road in the north west section of the map.

You’ll find other destinations like Rudiger’s Safehouse and Rydell’s Rydes dotted around the map too, which will likely serve as mission locations.

The map locations above are: Rydells’s Rides (1), Storm Drain in Cyrill Heights (2), City Pier in Underwood Gardens (3) Rudiger’s Safehouse in Yams Park (4), Car Plant at Kennedy Test Track (5), Quarry Domes at Lakeshore Quarry (6), L-Train in the City (7), and Mountain Road at Kennedy Drive (8).

Those are all the locations on the Need for Speed Unbound map.
