Need for Speed The Run Demo is Live!

October 18, 2011

Finally, after months of waiting, everyone can get their hands on The Run

Today, the demo went live on Xbox 360 and will be out shortly on PS3. Fans can download it from Marketplace (and tomorrow from PSN) and get their hands on two awesome levels, Desert Hills and Independence Pass. You'll have your choice of the monster Lamborghini LP550-2 Valentino Balboni or the 2012 Porsche Carrera S (if you refer a friend) to use as you tear through the dusty Nevada highways and snowy mountain passes of Colorado.

All of your times are tracked through Autolog, so you can compete against your friends too! The addition of real-time scoring shows you exactly how far ahead or behind you are of your friends at any point during the race. This is extremely helpful when trying to see where you're losing valuable seconds to your buddies. 

1) On Xbox Live go to "Game Marketplace"

2) Select "Demos"

3) Scroll to "A-Z" and select "N" 

4) Scroll down to "Need for Speed The Run Trial"

5) Select "Download Now"

6) Enjoy! 

Stay tuned as we'll have more news about the demo soon! 

Also, don't forget that you can win a brand new Porsche Carrera S in real-life too! All you have to do is login to your EA account here

Finally, remember that the demo is just a small dose of the intense action and the full game is out on November 15th, so pre-order it now
