You'll see why they call this trailer "On The Edge" when you watch it.
EA really has arcade racing on lockdown, and they're not letting up. The next game in the NFS series, Need for Speed The Run, centers around a cross-country run, from San Francisco to New York, and it looks good.
If you get nothing else from this trailer, at least get that they're squeezing every last drop out of that Frostbite 2 graphics engine. The entire trailer was made from actual game footage!
You'll get your chance to almost fall off a cliff this November. For now, enjoy the trailer and these new screenshots.
