[edit] Preview

Need For Speed: Undercover was released as a Need For Speed game from EA Black Box in November 2008. It brings with it a return to a heavily influence from police in the storyline last seen in Need for Speed: Most Wanted after Need for Speed: Carbon had little to do with the police and they were non-existent in Need for Speed: ProStreet. With many features returning such as cop chases and free roam not seen in ProStreet. The game concept is about being a undercover cop, taking out crime syndicates tearing them apart from the inside out.

[edit] Highway Battle Mode

A new mode has been released, called Highway Battle mode. It will be a bit like Canyon Duels (more commonly known in the real world Touge Racing) as of YouTube (very good source, in this case), and you must get ahead of the car in front by about 1000ft to win. The races take part on a Highway, surprisingly, and with civilian cars on the road, you must beat your opponent and dodge civilian cars too. It looks hard, and you can total your car easily.

[edit] Gameplay

The map is split up into four different areas: Tri-City Bay, Palm Harbour, Gold Coast Mountains and Sunset Hills. There is over 100 miles of open roads - the biggest NFS Map ever.

The Official NFS Undercover website shows gameplay, damage, information on the characters like some of your Police friends and the criminals and a cool new neon blue HUD. You also have the option of a very useful GPS system.

Some Parts of the city are redecorated Most Wanted parts. This is only from the PS2 version.
