Shift into high gear but watch it on those tight curves … It's a race for glory and a lot of cash in Need for Speed: The Run Limited Edition. The best-selling Need for Series returns with an intense, coast-to-coast race that pits you against hundreds of the most famous and infamous drivers. But other drivers are not your only worry … As you speed cross-country on some of the nation’s most perilous highways, keep an eye on your rear view mirror for the cops who will use any means possible to bring you down.
Previously only used on first-person shooters, the famed Frostbite 2 game engine promises the most stunning visuals in the history of the popular racing franchise as well as the most extreme and realistic racing physics ever developed. Zigzag your car carefully through heavily populated city streets and hug the lane tightly through sharply curved mountain passes. Earn a multitude of rewards and achievements as you progress in your career as one of the most famed illegal street racers. And for the first time ever, the richly detailed storyline features out-of-car action, like running across rooftops and fighting off cops.
Jump into your car, fire up your engine, and put the pedal to the metal in Need for Speed: The Run Limited Edition.
