EA Announces Shift 2 Unleashed, Shows off Trailer
In a press release, EA has announced Shift 2 Unleashed for a Spring 2011 release. Yes, they took Need for Speed out of the title, but if you watch the trailer below you’ll see that it’s still definitely a Need for Speed game.
The original Shift released in September of 2009, and was considered the most realistic of all the Need for Speed games. Now, they’ve added the next generation of Hot Pursuit’s Autolog, the network that manages stats and player matching, to the game. As for other additions, the press release mentions the following:
SHIFT 2 UNLEASHED features an all-new rendering engine with a massive graphics overhaul that puts the player in the heart of the racing action. With an innovative helmet camera view simulating the physical experience of driving at 200mph, the thrilling experience of night racing and authentic degradation of tracks and cars, this is tomorrow’s sim for today’s adrenaline fueled racer.
The sequel is still in the hands of Slightly Mad Studios, so igf you liked the first game, the second one may be right in your wheelhouse.
