Need for Speed: The Run Coming This November


Although not officially announced, the new Need for Speed title, called The Run, is scheduled to hit store shelves this November (SHIFT Unleashed 2 was released maybe a month ago in comparison, but both have different development teams). Not much is known about the title beyond that (for now, anyway), but what we do have is what appears to be a leaked trailer.

I can’t say for certain what the game is about, but given what you can pick up from the trailer, you’re, essentially, running for your life, as the game hints at it taking place from San Francisco up to what looks like New York City, and as the slogan at the end suggests (The Race For Your Life).

It also appears to be more story-driven than the past few titles; probably more so than ever. Seems interesting to say the least. Stay tuned for more information as it releases.

    No one wants to see stupid Jap cars in Need For Speed anymore. I doubt this installment will be successful as Hot Pursuit 2. Other than that, I’d like to see gameplay videos of this first.

    I don’t really dig the theme for this, if it is what you think Jay.

    Racing games are much better when they are not compromised by silly story elements, that usually ruins the experience, because you feel like they’re giving some crappy excuses for it and you just have to go along with it. Imo anyway…

    Hmm interesting to see a story driven NFS. I’ll have to keep a look out on this, see how it turns out. Maybe it will be at E3.
