EA has lifted the lid on the next iteration of its popular Need For Speed series.
NFS: The Run will be released for 3DS, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and PC on November 18th. The game will take players on an illicit cross-country race from San Francisco to New York.
The game will be developed by EA’s Black Box studio and is powered by DICE’s Frostbite 2 engine – the same tech used in the upcoming Battlefield 3. It will also feature the return of Autolog, the popular social networking feature that was introduced to the series with last year’s NFS: Hot Pursuit.
“This is the year that Need for Speed goes to the next level,” says EA’s executive producer at Electronic Arts. “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 per hour.”
