Need for Speed The Run released

Racing franchise attemps to return to its arcade roots with original developer Black Box

Posted on
Electronic Arts has announced that Need for Speed The Run is now available at retail stores in North America.

Featuring a star cast including Mad Men star Christina Hendricks, Never Back Down’s Sean Faris, 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover Model Irina Shayk and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model Chrissy Teigen, Need for Speed The Run takes players on a cross-country race known simply as “The Run.” With $25 million on the line, players take the wheel as Jack Rourke navigating from San Francisco to New York squaring off against 200 other racers all while evading the cops and the mob.

This is the biggest, fastest and most dangerous Need for Speed game yet,” said Jason DeLong, Executive Producer, Need for Speed The Run. “Need for Speed The Run delivers the series’ trademark thrilling racing and ups the ante with incredible action sequences and stunning performances from our all-star cast.”

The environments in The Run are made possible by the Frostbite 2 engine. The power of the DICE game engine, which was used in Battlefield 3, enabled the greater scale of Need for Speed The Run from courses like the slopes of Independence Pass, CO to the supercars, including the 2012 Porsche Carrera S and 2012 Lamborghini Aventador.

The Run is the 18th entry in the Need for Speed franchise. Started in 1994 with The Need for Speed, the franchise has sold over 115 million units and totaled more than 1 billion dollars in revenue.

Need for Speed The Run is available now in North America and will be available on November 17, 2011 in Europe for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PC.
