Need For Speed The Run was just revealed earlier and now we have the first details on the story which we dug up at the Youtube page for the trailer.
A NFS title with a STORY and a face, and a name to stick to? This might be the most Character driven NFS ever! Nice.
Yeah finally a racer which actually has a story that looks like it could be good!
Can't wait for more NFS! Hot Pursuit and Shift 2 were awesome.
just like sony announced so many of their games last year and yet still had twisted metal and portal 2 nfs need to go back to its underground route where we should have unlimited amount of things we should be able to change about our cars can't wait to see it at e3 even though last few nfs games have sucked any news on the nfs the studio behind burnout working on?
They are rumored to be making another Burnout title.
it isn't a rumor, Crash is almost ready. If there is a another burnout, great, criterion doing what criterion does.
Would like to see videos
Gameplay videos? Prolly not till E3. You know how EA are!
if u lame guys look around there is a TRAILER!!! seen it 4 times!!! @below: yeah, mostwanted and carbon did suck with storyline i agree. but dont think actors will be in this one. @ ENKI look like mixture of highstakes,mostwanted,undergro und combine together.
OMG! NOT ANOTHER NEED FOR SPEED WITH A STORY!! The fomula of no story was working sooo well for the past 2 years! NFS: hot pursuit & Shift 2 were amazing without a story, why bring crappy actors back into the mix..Why, oh why!?
most wanted had a decent story.
*gasp* Could it be.. NFS Underground 3...? :O
actually, aside from Criterion's NFS as an awesome holdover, Undercover (in concept) and a return to Underground.. cross country/Highway 'race' is about all I really wanted BlackBox to try with NFS. Reminds me of Test Drive:Oahu's circuit of the Island race. You, the road, and some amount of traffic and cops pestering you if you get too out of control. I hope they have bikes (reckless balls out speed) and helicopters (thrills). oh geez.. is it possible? an NFS game from Blackbox that's more lust worthy than a Criterion Bournout game?!
The title SAYS IT ..Need For Speed: The Run. Not Underground 3 lol.
Kinda curious how they already got a date nailed down so early. Most games don't until 6 months or less.
They make 2 at a time. One studio(s) works on their driving simulator series (Shift) and the other(s) works on their 'street racing' series (Hot pursuit/The Run) I may be incorrect but I'm pretty sure they've said that before. Either way I'm excited. I'm a HUGE need for speed fan and the main character has the same name as me so I guess it'll be kind of like I'm being spoken to in the cutscenes haha.
Wtf with all the disagrees. True forgot about that. Criterion and Black Box right? Edit: Oh they have 3 developers. I was wondering how Criterion could make a game in a year or less, but they don't. NFS:HS - Criterion Games NFS:SU2 - Slightly Mad Studios NFS:The Run - Black Box Games
You're correct :)
So if it's EA Black Box, I think the question becomes, "will it be any good?"
Agh, it will be garbage. Just like every Need For Speed game has been since Underground ruined it all.
didn't know that Shift and Hot Pursuit sucked /Sarcasm.
Shift did blow. There are 2 vastly superior games that fill the same role, one is called Forza 3, and the other is called Gran Turismo 5. As for Hot Pursuit, you're right, that game was good. I had lots of good times playing that game as a small boy in 1998.
Will it have wheel support, unlike Shift 2, that actually works?
answer is "no"
sounds good for those that dont know BB last NFS game was way back in 08, and Black box did the undergrounds and my favorite most wanted so there capable of some good stuff theres actually 3 devs black box that does the street racing Slightly Mad Studios that does shift and crietion that just did hot pursuit im only hoping there is a free roam with things to do like cop chases ect. like in black box's past games most wanted, carbon, undercover, and underground 2 thats what was lacking in hot pursuit the free roam was pointless
