The hottest blockbuster this holiday is a game that takes players on a heart-pounding cross-country race from San Francisco to New York. Launching on November 15, Need for Speed The Run lures players into an underground world of illicit, high-stakes racing. The heat is on – and it isn’t just the fuzz who are after you. Entering the race is just the beginning as you blow across borders, weave through dense urban traffic, rocket down icy mountain passes and navigate narrow canyons at breakneck speeds.
Powered by DICE’s state-of-the-art Frostbite ™ 2 engine, Need for Speed The Run takes the action racing genre to new heights with stunning visuals and car physics that hug the road even at top speeds all built around a gripping storyline. The cars are hot, the racing is intense and the story will have you at the edge of your seat… all the way from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Empire State building.

Do you love racing games? Do you dream of a jetset lifestyle? More importantly, are you not hideous? Then you could travel the world in 2012, helping to spread the word about EA Need for Speed: The Run as one of two official pokesmodelsfor the game.
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.

It sees gamers engaging in a fast-paced and dangerous illegal cross-country race across the US, travelling across mountains, canyons and cities while evading capture by the police.
The game will also offer stunning visuals powered by the Frostbite 2 graphics engine, which is also being used in the eagerly awaited Battlefield 3.
