Beyond the action-packed driving, one of the big draws to Need for Speed this year is the inclusion of story with what developer Ghost Games calls "icons" and their cars. These real-life automotive stars include people like Ken Block with his Mustang Hoonicorn, and Magnus Walker with his famous tuned Porsche 911, and both are on display in this trailer.
If you're searching for an experience more like an action-movie than a full-on driving sim, then Need for Speed looks great. Fleeing from police, the tuned vehicles snake through traffic at night, and light reflects off the wet road. Plus, setting the clip to Coolio's masterpiece, Gangsta's Paradise, fits the game's law-breaking style perfectly.
We'll be spending this weekend zipping around the world of Need For Speed ahead of its release in-store release. Keep an eye open for our review early next week.
