- Every Action Autologged – compare and compete against your friend's best times via the ground-breaking Autolog system that monitors your performance constantly
- No Need to Wait! – loitering in online lobbies, waiting to get in on the action is now a thing of the past thanks to Need For Speed: The Run; leap straight into the online action, joining on-going races at the press of a button.

It all to help promote the latest in the evergreen racing series, which breaks with tradition for this latest iteration. Using a cross country US road race as its basis, Need for Speed: The Run lets you exit the vehicles for the first time, evading cops in arcade foot chases and plotting your own course across America. Developer EA Black Box, responsible for eight of the seventeen Need for Speed games, will be hoping to build on the success of last year Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit which attracted critical acclaim and blockbuster sales.
The modelling contest, which is only open to women in an outrageous display of sexual discrimination, will pick two UK entrants who will also take home 500 worth of home entertainment kit. If youe interested, or just want to enter your mum, visit ukspokesmodel.needforspeed.com.
