Race for Your Life in Need for Speed The Run
On November 15, jump in the car, race down winding roads and prepare to judo kick cops into submission. Need for Speed The Run is a racing game with a story–a story of a man on the run, racing … somewhere. Fast. OK, not much is known about the story, but EA is assuring gamers that it will be a tale woven from adrenaline and heart-pumping action. Or so we’ve been told. The main character is on the run from the law and other enemies, chased from San Fransisco to the city the never sleeps, New York City.
The game takes full advantage of DICE’s Frostbite 2 engine, so prepare to see some crisp graphics and impressive damage.
“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.”
