Those who feel the Need for Speed (see what I did there?) will be excited that the next installment to the driving-sim franchise is not far from release. While F1 2012 has been enjoying much success in this genre, those who prefer the pick up and play type games will arguably be more drawn to NFS: The Run which hits stores November 18th.
If you are too impatient to wait until then, the demo will be available to download from October 18th, 19th in UK, until November 1st. We have been keeping you up to date so far with the news about the game as it occurs, including details about the pre-order bonus material and a limited edition trailer that made its way online.
Today we have provided another trailer for your viewing pleasure. This one gives our readers a look at EA’s recently announced Challenge Series mode for Need for Speed: The Run, which according to CVG has similarities to the style of gameplay that can be found in NFS: Hot Pursuit. The mode includes over 70 unique racing challenges, ranging from complicated 7 minute courses along mountain sides to fast and intense checkpoint dashes.
Some of the courses are named after and based on previous NFS titles such as Underground, Most Wanted and Carbon. All performances are recorded on the Autolog ranking system allowing gamers to compare their scores, lap times and progression against their friends’. CVG were able to get some hands on time with the mode and have provided a video of their chat with developer Black Box. Check it out for yourself by clicking the link above. In the meantime check out the trailer below for an introduction to the Challenge Series mode.
What do you think of it? Are you looking forward to the next Need for Speed installment?
