Back in June, EA invited a bunch of guests to a race track near the French city of Lyon, letting them try the upcoming Need for Speed Shift title.
After running Shift in simulators equipped with the Logitech G25, the guests got to drive the real life versions of the car to compare the handling. It seems like the testers were finally allowed to try the simulation mode of the game as one guest mentions driving with all assistance off. The video is mainly in French, most parts are subtitled in English though.
Developed by Slightly Mad Studios (former Blimey! Games) and distributed by EA, Need for Speed Shift is expected to be released in September 2009 for the PC and all major consoles. A demo of Shift has been announced to be available this summer.
