The demo for Need for
Speed: The Run launched this week, but if your interest in the title extends as
far as “wanting to know how it looks and sounds” without going so far as to
wonder how it feels to actually play the game, this is exactly the video you
have been looking for. The PS3-based clip previews the game's California-Nevada
Desert Race segment, and offers a decent, though far from impossible,
performance to beat while you wait for the full release.
Need for Speed: The Run
launches on Nov 15. Earlier this week it was announced that Mad Men's Christina Hendricks would be providing
appealing voice-noises as the love interest of protagonist Sean Farris,
previously known for The Vampire Diaries. So all you prospective players
worried that the title's saga of big-money, life-or-death cross-country racing
wouldn't have a competently-voiced romantic subplot can rest assured that EA is
looking out for your (frankly, rather misguided) interests.
