Hey, $25 million can make people do crazy things.
In Need for Speed: The Run , the goal is to get from one coast to another. If you do it the fastest, you earn the big cash prize. Of course, many other drivers are racing for the very same prize, so it may come down to…kill or be killed. In the latest trailer for EA's new racer, we watch as a pursuing cop gets mashed by a big truck and a competing racer takes what appears to be the final plunge over a cliff.
We expect it to control much like last year's Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit , but the addition of a fleshed-out storyline and this coast-to-coast contest makes The Run stand out. Also, we just have to ask: if we go over the edge like that unfortunate racer in the video, will there be any big consequences? As in, the race is over? Or will you just blink and reenter the race, as you often do in arcade racers?
Well, whatever. Game looks fun.
