“The Run” in question is from San Francisco to New York, á la The Gumball Rally (you know, the one with Raul Julia). The game will be using the Frostbite 2 engine to get you there, which sounds promising thanks to the brilliant stuff DICE have wrung out of it in Battlefield.
Jason DeLong, Executive Producer at EA, said:
“This is the year that Need for Speed goes to the next level. We think that Need for Speed The Run is going to surprise people with its intense, thrilling story and big action feel.”
“But the game would be nothing without hot cars and crazy-fast chases. So that is what we’re delivering – explosive racing that will have players flirting with disaster at 200-miles an hour.”
The Black Box developed title is out on Xbox, PS3, PC, Wii and 3DS November 17th 2011.
