News: The first Need For Speed racing sim will be available on September 22.
Need For Speed: Shift, The first game in Electronic Arts' new three-pronged Need For Speed-strategy will be released for the PC, PlayStation 3, PSP and Xbox 360 on September 22.
Shift will be EA's entry in the newly popular "racing simulation" genre:
Players are thrust into the loud, intense, and athletic experience of racing a car from the driver's perspective through the combination of perception based G-forces, the hyper reality of the cockpit view, and the all-new brutally disorienting crash dynamic. Need For Speed: Shift features an accurate, accessible physics-based driving model that allows you to feel every impact, every change of track surface and every last bit of grip as you push yourself to the edge.
?With Need For Speed: Shift, we set out to create a racing game that pushes the genre and delivers something never before seen in a Need For Speed title,? said Patrick Soderlund, Senior Vice President at EA Games Europe. ?By focusing on the driver's experience through the first-person view, we are able to capture the high-speed intensity and gripping emotions of racing.?
We'll have more soon.
