Shift 2 Unleashed pushes the envelope with the most authentic and intense racing experience in the genre. The world debut trailer of Shift 2 Unleashed was revealed today as bonus content for the action racing Need for Speed title, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit.

Shift 2: Unleashed also delivers the rush of an authentic driver's battle with exclusive access to 40 career events. Launching in Spring 2011, Shift 2: Unleashed is the perfect simulation complement to the action racer Need for Speed Hot Pursuit which introduced a simple yet brilliant rivalry-generating technology called Autolog. This groundbreaking network had been carried over to Shift 2: Unleashed, connecting friends in head-to-head races and comparing player stats for the ultimate social racing competition.

The 40 events include Single-Type race events where a driver's skill is pushed to the limits as each player competes in the same make of car; Old vs. New Challenge events in which classic cars go head-to-head against their modern counterparts; and Manufacturer Showdown events that pits some of the most iconic car rivalries against each other in an all-out-battle to prove which car is the best. Shift 2 Unleashed takes the revolutionary true driver's experience of the Shift franchise and ups the ante with an all-new rendering engine and graphics overhaul, innovative helmet camera, night racing, and authentic degradation of tracks and cars.

With an  innovative helmet camera view simulating the physical experience of driving at 200mph, the thrilling experience of night racing and authentic degradation of tracks and cars, thisis tomorrow’s sim for today’s adrenaline fueled racer. Shift 2 Unleashed also incorporates the next generation of Need for Speed Autolog – the groundbreaking network that connects friends for epic head-to-head races and compares player stats for the ultimate social racing competition.
