Following yesterday’s leak and then trailer release, EA has officially announced Need for Speed: The Run.
As we already know this new NFS is going to be a race for your life but what we didn’t know was that it will utilise DICE’s frostbite 2 Engine as you race from the Empire State Building to the Golden Gate Bridge.
Going by the press release, the game will have an in-depth story and include the Autolog for some social gaming and EA say it will “continue to reinvent how people play games, track career progression and compare game stats”. The game is also being developed by EA’s Black Box studio in case you were wondering.
“This is the year that Need for Speed goes to the next level,” said Jason DeLong, Executive Producer at EA. “We think that Need for Speed The Run is going to surprise people with its intense, thrilling story and big action feel. But the game would be nothing without hot cars and crazy-fast chases. So that is what we’re delivering — explosive racing that will have players flirting with disaster at 200-miles an hour.”
Watch out for the game on 15 November in the US and 18 November here in Europe. If you missed the trailer yesterday, here it is again.
