In this trailer for Shift 2 Unleashed
, two drivers compete with each other in the Autolog Drift Challenge. Vaughn Gittin Jr., 2010 Formula Drift Champion, takes on Team Need for Speed driver Matt Powers in the challenge to reach the highest drift score. Both drivers have customized their cars, not only visually, but also to increase their performance.
Autolog allows each driver to view their competitor's score, despite not being in the same room. You can track your career progress, personal best times, and how they stack up against your friends. An app for the iPhone will also be available - this will allow players to compare driver profiles and career stats - although this can also be done online for those of you who are worried about not having an iPhone. Players will also be able to share and comment on pictures and videos of their "biggest wins, hottest cars, and most twisted crashes".Shift 2 Unleashed
is due to be released on March 29th, 2011 in North America, March 31st in Australia, and April 1st in Europe. If you are intending to pre-order the title, have a look at the pre-order incentives
