The Run – The latest from the Need For Speed series

EA Games recently unveiled the first look of the latest iteration of the Need For Speed series – Need For Speed -The Run. The game as the trailer suggests takes you away from the boring track racing back into those narrow lanes of the city. This ensures a heavy dose of drama and superb racing experience.

The game has a simple plot: The gamer has to make his way through the country while the Bad guys and the Police chase him throughout the gamer’s journey. To put it in simple words, its quite similar to the Fast and Furious series.

Need For Speed - The Run

Is this an extension of the Underground series ? We don’t know as of yet as the game is set to release on 15th November 2011.

Below is the official trailer unveiled by EA Games. Though it is a short clip but it reveals quite a lot. From what I observed, I found these cars:

  • Audi R8
  • Porsche Cayenne
  • Mustang (Probably the Shelby GT500)
  • Ford Taurus Police Interceptor

This might not seem quite a lot but the Official Need For Speed website says this about the game:

“It’s called The Run. An illicit, high-stakes race across the country. The only way to get your life back is to be the first from San Francisco to New York. No speed limits. No rules. No allies. All you have are your driving skills and sheer determination as you battle hundreds of the world’s most notorious drivers on the country’s most dangerous roads. In Need for Speed The Run, you’ll weave through dense urban centers, rocket down icy mountain passes and navigate narrow canyons at breakneck speeds, all the while evading a relentless police force prepared – and willing – to use lethal force to take you down.

PLATFORMS: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Wii, Nintendo 3DS”

So all you Need For Speed fans out there, start polishing your racing skills as Need For Speed – The Run is about to get your pulses running.

  1. It’s gonna be great if it is like NFS underground 2, with something like that outrun in nfsu2. And if it also has drag and drift both it is going to be the best in the series.
