Need For Speed Undercover

Rather than focus exclusively on racing, the game would sport a stronger mission structure and narrative storytelling.

Players will take on dangerous jobs and compete in races in order to infiltrate and takedown a ruthless international crime syndicate. Undercover will feature gameplay that resembles 2005’s NFS: Most Wanted, emphasizing car chases, underground racing, and highway battles. Need for Speed Undercover is expected to drift onto retail shelves in North America on November 18, with a European release following on November 21. Trailer after the break.
