Need for Speed: The Run Announced

Yeah I know we’re a bit late in carrying the news but better late than never, right? So anyway, it seems EA’s Need for Speed series is in full swing once again. After Criterion’s Hot Pursuit, it was the sim-like Shift 2 Unleashed after which it’s back to over-the-top racing once again with Need for Speed: The Run.

On the run

On the run


Contrary to what the name may suggest, your character in this game will not be in the run from his past or something that meaningful. He will in fact be taking place in an illegal cross country race called The Run that starts in San Francisco and ends in New York. Besides a brief summary of the plot, the only other thing divulged is the fact that the game will be made using DICE’s Frostbite 2.0 engine, the very same engine that’s powering Battlefield 3. This should pave the way for some intense environmental destruction and intense set pieces.


Need for Speed: The Run will be released by the 15th of November 2011 for pretty much every platform out there. Expect a full blown reveal at E3 2011.
