Video: Need for Speed: The Run PS3 Demo Hits PSN Tomorrow
EA Community Manager Coulter Mulligan has posted up a video today and confirmed that the Need for Speed: The Run PS3 demo will arrive on PlayStation Network tomorrow.
To quote: As PlayStation fans should already 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 18th, PS3 owners can get their hands on The Run demo on the PlayStation Store! 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 set 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!
All of your times are tracked using Need For Speed's Autolog feature, allowing you to challenge your PSN friends and beat their times.
Lastly, just by pre-ordering the game on PS3, you automatically get seven exclusive supercars to use! These aren't just throwaway cars either. PlayStation players will get the following beasts in their garage:
• Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
• Hennessey Venom GT
• GUMPERT apollo s
• Lamborghini Countach QV5000
• Koenigsegg Agera R
• Lexus LFA
• Porsche Carrera GT
Not a bad list, eh? Download the demo on PS3 October 18th, and get the full game on November 15th!

Nice, I'm a fan of NFS series (since first game on PS1) , I'll try surely this demo tomorrow!
I used to be a big fan since NFS 3 on my PS1, but most of the new games are the same thing, I might give this game a shot if I get my hands on the demo and it is good.
When this game comes out, it better have offline multiplayer. What kind of racing game on console has no splitscreen...
I 110% agree, the reason I returned NFS Hot Pursuit was because it had no split screen, did they seriously think no one uses split screen anymore?
I'm a massive NFS fan and i feel they get better and better. NFS:HP was awesome bought it on release no second thoughts, i can't wait to test this out and again will probably buy it on the release which surprisingly is a day before my birthday so an early present.
