We've seen a teaser trailer for Need for Speed: The Run and now, developer Black Box has offered to answer a few questions.
New information on the game can be found at the NFS Blog and first and foremost, we get an explanation as to why they chose DICE's Frostbite 2.0 engine (the one powering the very promising Battlefield 3 ). Here's the reply-
"One of our goals with Need for Speed The Run was to set the bar for visuals higher than any previous Need for Speed, and working with DICE’s revolutionary Frostbite 2.0 engine, we’re able to do that. The visual quality in Need for Speed The Run is unmatched among action racing games."
They also address a question concerning the three NFS games on the slate, what we can expect from that sweet Autolog feature, and a small story hint: "you’ll be drawn into an illicit, high-stakes race with no speed limits, no allies, and one goal: making it to New York first." As for something to mull over, they were asked what it means when they say this year's NFS "goes to the next level:"
"This year, we’re pushing the limits of everything you’ve expected from a Need for Speed game, with a gripping storyline, awe-inspiring visuals, and the most intense racing experience you’ll find anywhere."
