EA Announces Shift 2 Unleashed - Web Exclusive

Electronic Arts today announced Shift 2 Unleashed, the next entry in the Need for Speed video game driving series.

Nov 16, 2010

The original Shift game was released in September 2009 and sold close to five million copies globally. Its success was propelled by game design that was regarded as more intense than other titles in the category.

Capturing the physicality of racing at 200mph has been the area of innovation for the development team at Slightly Mad Studios. Shift 2 Unleashed builds on the drivers experience by introducing the driver’s battle, an even more authentic feeling of speed, which elevates the race into a struggle for supremacy against other drivers.

Launching in Spring 2011, Shift 2 Unleashed pushes the envelope with what they claim is the most authentic and intense racing experience in the genre. The world debut trailer of the new game was revealed today as bonus content for Need for Speed Hot Pursuit and we have it here. It’s certainly a very exciting video and we’re interested to see how it translates into the game.

Shift 2 Unleashed features an all-new rendering engine with a massive graphics overhaul that puts the player in the heart of the action. With an innovative helmet camera view simulating the experience of driving at 200mph, the thrilling experience of night racing and authentic degradation of tracks and cars, this is tomorrow’s simulator for today’s video game racer.

Shift 2 Unleashed also incorporates the next generation of Need for Speed Autolog - the groundbreaking network that connects friends for epic head-to-head races and compares player stats for the ultimate social racing competition.
