Back at the end of April we provided our readers with a few details and a teaser trailer for the upcoming Need for Speed: The Run game. The trailer – which was only 1 minute and 17 seconds long – showed brief glimpses of race action, along with images that appeared to show the game’s story mode.

If that wasn’t enough for you however, you’ll be pleased to know that Electronic Arts has just revealed new game details during this year’s E3 2011 event. As Kevin Schram over at nexus404.com notes, The Run appears to be a bit of departure for the NFs series, as the developer is adding some new elements to the game.

The Need for Speed: The Run game will have the player participating in a race from San Francisco to New York, and includes a few out-of-the car levels. Fans will also be pleased to know that the Autolog feature that first appeared in the Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit game will be making a return in The Run.

Electronic Arts also showed a short gameplay demo during today’s E3 press conference, which gave fans a glimpse into the game’s on-foot segments. In the segment that was shown, the player’s character was seen running through a building while trying to escape the Mob in Chicago.

It then showed the character stealing a cop car from the police, which he then crashes upside down on train tracks. Do you like the sound of the Need for Speed: The Run game from what you’ve read so far?
