Need for Speed: The Run Multiplayer Video Powerslides Around the Bend

Muscle Car Battles and Exotic Sprint Racing are two of what we're sure will be many multiplayer modes in Need for Speed: The Run, and they're both shown in this new multiplayer video, which demonstrates the game-modifying Bonus Wheel and some of its effects.

For instance, spinning the wheel might grant you bonus XP for finishing in the top three, or it might deactivate turbo boosting or perhaps it'll grant the winner a new car as a sweet little bonus. The Bonus Wheel does seem to put an interesting spin on races (no pun intended).

The Run is also utilising new matchmaking technology that eliminates the need to hang around waiting in lobbies, instead thrusting you straight into races already in progress. Check out the trailer for a closer look at the multiplayer mode in Need for Speed: The Run, which is out on November 15th in North America and November 18th in Europe.

The second half of the demo was fantastic, if they've got something special to distinguish each stage (and reduced the understeer) then I reckon the game'll be a blast. It's about time the NFS fanchise returned to it's fun, arcade-like roots and stopped trying to compete as a simulator or making every game about police chases.

It's funny I was really skeptical about this the first time I heard about it but the more videos I see about this game the better it looks. It might actually be a solid title.

by selecting your own playlist do they mean in game songs or perhaps music youve saved onto your ps3?

this game looks awesome. i cant fully decide if im going to spend the 60 bucks on preorder or just rent and play the campaign. the MP looks pretty fun, but i kinda want to dig into a few other games.
