E3 2011: Need for Speed: The Run Looks Intense

Amidst tons (and I mean tons) of CG footage at E3 2011, it was refreshing to see EA come up with actual gameplay for their upcoming Need for Speed game titled Need for Speed: The Run. For reasons not known yet, you’ll be driving from San Francisco to New York on the run from cops, the mob and other aggressive A.I. The game’s being developed by DICE’s Frostbite Engine 2, the very same engine fuelling Battlefield 3 which means environmental destruction will be top notch.

And for the first time in the series, the protagonist of the game actually got out of his car and ran for his life. Even though it was using QTEs (Quick Time events). But enough talk, check out the gameplay vid embedded below.
