Need For Speed: The Run New Trailers Released

By Andrew Ogley, 7 years ago
With the release date for Need For Speed: The Run rapidly approaching, EA and the folks over at the Need For Speed studio have released two new trailers for the upcoming title.

The first video, running in at a shade under seven minutes, covers the use of the Frostbite 2 graphics engine, best known for driving Battlefield 3, and how the team from NFS utilized and adopted the features from the FPS engine in their racing title. From a development and design point of view it makes for quite interesting viewing.

The second video is the first in a series of five clips where UK artists try to set their fastest time around a specific course in the game. The first victim/volunteer/show-off is Loick Essien, a hip-hop, R&B artist from Hammersmith in England. Essien manages to complete the course despite having his Porsche argue with a telegraph pole partway through the course.

The finish line for Need For Speed: The Run draws ever closer and the title will be racing to stores on November 15th in North America, 17th in Australia, and 18th in Europe.
