Here’s a video on Need for Speed Shift that I missed out on. Released earlier this month, the video features an interview with EA’s Patrick Soderlund who explains some of the title’s planned features.
Developed by Slightly Mad Studios (former Blimey! Games) and distributed by EA, Need for Speed Shift is expected to be released in Q4 2009 for the PC and all major consoles. Unlike most Need for Speed titles, the developers keep on promising to deliver a very realistic simulation despite the title’s somewhat arcadish look.
