Need For Speed: The Run Dev Diary And Pre-Orders

By Andrew Ogley, 5 years ago
EA have released some new videos relating to their upcoming title Need For Speed: The Run, which is currently under development by Black Box Studios.

The first video is a development diary clip in which the developers explain how the sound, speech, and music for the game was put together. It gives an interesting insight into the work that happens behind the scenes during audio development.

The other two videos provide details of the pre-order bonuses for the game. Both pre-order packages consist of two bonus cars and three bonus events, which vary depending on the particular challenge package that you choose.

If you go for the Most Wanted challenge package, you will have access to a BMW M3 GTS and a Mustang Boss 302. The bonus events will be inspired from the earlier title, Need for Speed: Most Wanted.

Alternatively, if you opt for the Underground challenge package, you will have access to a Nissan 370Z and a Nissan Skyline GT-R R34, with the bonus events being inspired by another earlier title, Need for Speed: Underground.

However, buyer beware, the pre-orders are only available through certain retailers, so you have to order your copy of the game from the correct retailer to ensure you get the pre-order bonus that you want. According to the official site, Gamestop is carrying the Most Wanted package currently priced at $59.99, and Amazon is providing the Underground package, at the same price. The official website contains complete details for other retailers in all other regions.

Need For Speed: The Run is scheduled for release in North America and Europe on November 15th and 18th respectively.
