It’s called The Run. An illicit, high-stakes race across the country. The only way to get your life back is to be the first from San Francisco to New York. No speed limits. No rules. No allies.
All you have are your driving skills and sheer determination as you battle hundreds of the world’s most notorious drivers on the country’s most dangerous roads.
In Need for Speed The Run, you’ll weave through dense urban centers, rocket down icy mountain passes and navigate narrow canyons at breakneck speeds, all the while evading a relentless police force prepared — and willing — to use lethal force to take you down. In stores November 15th, 2011.

Frostbite 2 has rocketed to fame after its graphical horsepower and capabilities were shown off in footage from Battlefield 3, which it also powers.
The Run is being developed by Black Box, and continues the cops vs racers war in a similar fashion to Criterion’s Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit from last year. However, this time around the central focus is that of ‘The Run’; an illegal cross-country race from San Francisco all the way to New York City. Players will have to “weave through dense urban centers, rocket down icy mountain passes and navigate narrow canyons at breakneck speeds”, whilst keeping an eye out for law enforcement.
Need for Speed: The Run is expected November 15 in the US and November 18 in the UK.
