NFS: The Run Multiplayer Trailer [UPDATED]

By Michelle Balsan, 5 years ago
Black Box and EA have released a new trailer for their upcoming racer, Need for Speed: The Run. Previously, we've seen videos on the Challenge Series, the story, and importantly, the not-appearing-in-Forza Motorsport 4, Porsche.

Today's video focuses on the latest Need for Speed's multiplayer. The trailer shows off Muscle Car Battles as well as races involving Exotic Sprint Cars. After the race is picked, a bonus wheel will appear, offering extra prizes such as bonus XP for the top finishers or even a new in-game car if you finish first.

Alright, enough text. Get to the watching:


In case you can't view the video, this description also sheds some light on The Run's multiplayer:
Are you ready for the most accessible online racing experience ever offered? Need for Speed The Run is offering matchmaking technology so you can join races already in progress instead of waiting in lobbies. Create a party with friends, pick a playlist of your favorite challenges and compete for supremacy across every stage of The Run. By mastering all of the playlists you can level up and earn access to exclusive vehicles, upgrades and abilities with the Bonus Wheel.
