Spontaneous Events in Need for Speed (2015) are player versus player events that can be triggered in free roam with either an AI driver or another player in the current multiplayer session.
A Spontaneous Event can be offered against an AI driver by matching their speed for a short period of time with an AI driver that is cruising in free roam, and waiting for a prompt to appear to challenge them. Successfully challenging an AI driver will allow the challenger to start one of three highlighted event types.
A Spontaneous Event can be offered against other players in the current multiplayer session by matching their speed or parking near them if they're stationary. Successfully challenging another player will prompt them to accept the challenge given to them. Upon the other player accepting the challenge, the player issuing the challenge can start one of three highlighted event types.
The challenger can decline their challenge offer at the select challenge stage by pressing the B button/Circle button.
A Sprint Race can be issued by pressing the X button/Square button upon a challenge being accepted. Both players will be pitted against each other to reach the highlighted finish line first.
A Drift Contest can be issued by pressing the Y button/Triangle button upon a challenge being accepted. Both players will be pitted against each other to earn the highest drift score along a highlighted route before a timer runs out.
An Outrun Race can be issued by pressing the A button/X button upon a challenge being accepted. Both players will be pitted against each other to pull away from one another along a highlighted route. The winner is the driver to get ahead of the other driver by 250 metres.
