Electronic Arts has confirmed that the latest entry in the Need for Speed simulation spinoff series, Shift 2 Unleashed, is now available at retail stores in North America.
“Our goal with Shift 2 Unleashed is to put the series at the head of the racing simulation genre by injecting some much needed energy into it,” said Marcus Nilsson, Executive Producer. “Working with the aid of Team Need for Speed drivers, we incorporated real-world race driving insights to make key improvements and enhancements to the game, while also innovating at the very core of the racing experience. Our introduction of game changing features like helmet cam further blurs the lines between real racing and the in-game experience.”
Exclusively featuring the newly-unveiled Pagani Huayra supercar, players will experience all the violence, energy and excitement of race day. Shift 2 Unleashed also takes the rivalry-generating Autolog technology pioneered by Need for Speed Hot Pursuit and connects friends and foes together in head-to-head races and player statistic match-ups to add new layers of depth and detail to the competition.
Shift 2 Unleashed is now available in North America and will be available April 1 in Europe for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
