EA has released the first proper details on Need for Speed: Undercover, which'll no doubt sit somewhere near the top of this Christmas's sales chart.
After the disappointing Pro Street, Undercover takes the NFS series "back to its roots" says EA, with high-speed pursuits with rivals while dodging the old blues 'n twos to take down an International crime syndicate. All whilst undercover, obviously.
There's 80 miles of road to explore in the open-world Tri-City Bay area, says EA, and a totally new AI mechanic which delivers "aggressive and intelligent cops whose sole purpose is to take down the player quickly and by any means necessary."
The new game also introduces an all-new 'Heroic Driving Engine', a unique technology that generates "incredible high-performance moves at 180 miles per hour". We've no idea what this means.
Of course you can also expect tons of car customization, vehicle damage and licensed motors such as the Audi R8, BMW M6 and Lexus IS-F.
From my experience, its like this, the 'flashier' the teasers/trailers/gameplay videos that release before the game itself, the duller the game turns out to be ... and this perfectly applies on Pro Street ...
Anyways, regarding Undercover, I do hope its at least as good (if not better) than Most Wanted, since that was the last great Need For Speed title in my opinion ..
