Game News: Michael Brings the Bay-hem in new NEED FOR SPEED: THE RUN Trailer

Michael Bay. Big fan. Driving games? Not so much. But there's gotta be some of you out there that dig both, and for all those with their hands raised right now, boy do we have a treat for you!

Electronic Arts and their developers at Black Box Studio tasked the TRANSFORMERS auteur to lend his considerable talents for blowing shit up on camera and direct his own trailer, the results of which are finally here in all their glory! Presenting, the newly unleashed trailer for NEED FOR SPEED: THE RUN...

Sweeeet! It even had a slow-motion helicopter shot! Whomph-whomph-whomph-whomph... etc.

In all seriousness... I think I'd actually go see that if it was a movie. Reminded me of a dark CANNONBALL RUN. (Note to self: patent 'Dark Cannonball Run' pitch).

The Eagle-eared (is that even an expression?) amongst you might have spotted a familiar voice or two peppered throughout, including MAD MEN, DRIVE, and would-be WONDER WOMAN star Christina Hendricks. 

NEED FOR SPEED: THE RUN hits your console of choice November 17th.

Yeah I'm well up for this one.
EA have had a good run with Need for Speed recently so I have high hopes here.
The idea of a plot in a racing game is one I am glad they are expanding on as well.
