Need for Speed: The Run packshot image
Need for Speed: The Run is an upcoming racing video game in the Need for Speed franchise published by Electronic Arts.
NFS The Run is scheduled for release on 15 November 2011. Based on the first trailer for the game, it appears to be a story-focused, cross-country driving affair with players fleeing from the law—often the best part of Need For Speed video games. It appears that players will travel from San Francisco to New York, driving through Las Vegas and Denver along the way. We will add more information about this game when it become available.
