Next up, Electronic Arts has confirmed the release date for the latest entry in the Need For Speed series, Need For Speed: Nitro
. The game, which is in development for the DS and Wii, will be released on November 20. The arcade racer will include a ton of different control schemes such as the Wii Remote, Wii Remote + Nunchuk, racing wheel, Classic Controller or GameCube controller so that gamers can play the way they want.
Finally, EA has also confirmed that The Saboteur
, a game based on the true story of an Irish race car driver who took on the Nazis, will be released for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on December 8. Not a typical World War II game, The Saboteur explores some of the more underground aspects of the European resistance:
Inspired by a true story, The Saboteur stars Sean Devlin, a street-tough Irish race car driver trapped behind enemy lines in 1940s Nazi-occupied France. Motivated by personal revenge, Sean fights, climbs, and races through open-world Paris, sneaking into the heart of the Nazi operations and sabotaging their every move. With the help of the French Resistance, the British intelligence, an arsenal of weaponry, street smarts and brawn, players will exact revenge on those who aim to destroy Sean's life. From derailing trains and blowing up zeppelins to scaling famous Parisian landmarks and more, this action hero uses a broad range of weapons, explosives and vehicles to get the job done.
We'll have more on all three of these titles soon.
