The Shift 2: Unleashed game (aka Need for Speed: Shift 2 Unleashed) has only been out for around a month, and we’re already hearing information about a new Need for Speed title. The game – entitled Need for Speed: The Run – was first revealed by European retailer ShopTo.net.

According to a recent article by Brendan Sinclair over at gamespot.com, the ShopTo.net product page for the Need for Speed: The Run game not only unveils the game and its box art, but it also reveals a short teaser trailer that shows a North American launch date of November 15th.

The trailer – which clocks in at just 1 minute, 17 seconds long – shows brief glimpses of race action, inter-cut with images of what appears to be the story mode. The video (seen here) also suggests that places such as Denver, San Francisco, New York and Las Vegas will feature in the game.

In regards to a story, the trailer’s glimpses show a man, whose name appears to be Jack, regaining consciousness in a car that’s overturned on a railroad track, while a woman’s voice is calling his name in the background. The tagline at the end of the video is ‘The race for your life.’

Watch the trailer and let us know what you think. Will you be buying the Need for Speed: The Run game?
