Starting as a rookie, you will need to train and practice in racing disciplines such as time attack and drifting. Once you are good enough, you will have a chance to qualify for the World Championship races and begin to take down opponents as you rise to the top of the ranks.

Here's the trailer:



EA also released 11 new screenshots for our viewing pleasure, showcasing some of the sleek and sexy race cars we will be winning championships with, or totalling into other race cars

Compare Driver Profiles and career status, share and comment on pictures and videos, send challenges, and pull news feeds directly from NFS.com and Speehunters.com. Autolog recommendations amp up the social competition of real-world racing by delivering challenges based on friend activity, creating a dynamic, competitive, fun new way to play both online and offline.

True Realistic Racing - Shift 2: Unleashed redefines the racing simulator genre by bringing the atmosphere of race day to life.. Featuring the FIA GT1 World Championship and GT3 European Championship plus real-world drivers, tracks, and cars, this is truly tomorrow's sim for today's adrenaline-fueled racer.

Amazing Career Depth and Variety - Earn unlocks and participate in multiple racing disciplines on the way to becoming the FIA GT1 World Champion. Featuring everything from new Endurance races to muscle and retro cars, Shift 2: Unleashed gives you the flexibility to choose the path that fits your individual racing style.

Customize for Show or Customize to Win! - Unleash your creativity to turn some of the world's most elite high-performance vehicles into fire-breathing weapons. Customize the engine, the body, the suspension, and much, much more, then put your ultimate racing machine to the test in any mode. Whether your goal is to race a 1000-horsepower Econobox or a tricked-out GTR, you have nearly limitless options to reign supreme on the track where every second counts.

Photo Real Cars and Tracks - Over 130 licensed cars are available including the Nissan GT-R GT1, McLaren MP4-12C, and GUMPERT Apollo. There is also over 50 real-world locations like Bathurst, Spa de Francochamps and Suzuka as well as fictional circuits like downtown London and Shanghai.

Definitely a rent. Need for Speed shift was not great in terms of actually racing and neither was Hot pursuit. I do not feel this will be any better than shift 1

I liked the original shift, it was certainly less boring than Forza3.

Still hate EA though, and guaranteed they'll rape this for DLC roll

Cannot wait! Absolutely loved Shift and with the addition of Autolog, it'll ratchet up the competition between friends and everyone else on XBL the same way it did for Hot Pursuit.

o VenoX said:Definitely a rent. Need for Speed shift was not great in terms of actually racing and neither was Hot pursuit. I do not feel this will be any better than shift 1I hope you realize that Hot Pursuit was an arcade racer and not a sim, so comparing the two games is ridiculous.

It's that hard to differentiate arcade racing and sim racing. C'mon

I qiute enjoyed the first Shift myself, and looking forward to the next. Though I'll still likely wait a while for a price drop before I grab it.

I was originally planning on TDU2 being my only racing game purchase this year, but as of now that may not be the case.
