Need for Speed: Shift

Posted: September 27, 2009 in Games Corner


Need for Speed: Shift is the 13th installment of the long-running racing video game franchise Electronic Arts. It was announced in January 2009. Shift was developed by Slightly Mad Studios—who, under their former name Blimey!In the new franchising model for the series adopted by EA, Shift takes its place focusing on simulation racing and realistic drifting rather than the arcade racing of previous titles in the series. It abandons the street racing formula of previous games and focuses on simulating the “true” driver experience.


According to an interview from Shift’s producer, Geever, the game has been in development for two years. He also mentioned that the game will feature a new “Driver experience”. G-force will play an important role in the game, as it will affect both the player and the AI. The in-car view will also return, making its first appearance in aNeed for Speed game since Porsche Unleashed. The in-car view will be highly detailed, and it will be possible to see the driver changing gears and moving his head to get a better view of the mirror. The crashes will affect the players visuals. While crashing, there will be a temporary blur on screen. The sound aspect will have detailed car crash sound, as well as a sharp gasp of breath from the driver before a collision.
