EA have announced the next game in their long running racing franchise. The new game is titled Need for Speed: The Run, it’s set to release on November 15th of this year.
The Run sends you back into the world of illegal underground racing with the law hot on your tail, but EA allude that the fuzz won’t be the only ones your running from.
Interestingly they’re also promising “stunning visuals and car physics that hug the road even at top speeds all built around a gripping storyline.”. Storyline? In Need for Speed?
The premise of this story is a gruelling cross-country race that’ll take you from San Francisco to New York city, and it’s all powered by the Frostbit 2 engine – most famous for powering Bad Company 2.
“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.”
