As PlayStation fans may or may not know, Need for Speed The Run is an illicit high-stakes cross-country race from San Francisco to New York. You’ll be playing as Jack, who is a marked man and his only way out is to battle other 200 racers for a sweet $25 million dollar prize.
Starting October 19th, PS3 owners can get their hands on The Run demo! Featuring the monster Lamborghini LP550-2 Valentino Balboni, and the brand new Porsche Carrera S, the demo will let you open them up in two locations in the US. (As a side note, don’t forget that if you live in the US, Canada or the UK, you can win the new Carrera S in real life just by logging into your EA account!)
Desert Hills will have you jockeying for position through the sweeping Nevada highways, while Independence Pass presents an entirely different challenge. An avalanche bears down on your Lambo (or Porsche) as you dice it up against an Audi R8, avoiding falling boulders and the onslaught of snow that’s right on your rear bumper. At that point it’s not so much about winning as it is surviving!
Not only that, but UK fans have the chance to win some Need for Speed goodies every day of the demo! You’ll just need a twitter account and proof of you beating a time of 2:41.24 while in 1st place. Check out the official details here.
