Need for Speed: SHIFT is the 13th installment in the long-running racing game series Need for Speed.

Overview

The game had been reportedly in development for two years. It features a new "driving experience", as well as driver achievements; certain feats players must achieve on track, similar to the reward card system in Need for Speed Carbon. G-Force is an important part in the game, as in all simulators. Notably the in-car view makes its first appearance in an NFS game since 2000's Porsche Unleashed. The in-car view is highly detailed, and it will be possible to see the driver changing gears and moving his head to get a better view of the mirror. The crashes will affect the player's visuals. While crashing, there will be a temporary blur on screen. The sound aspect will have detailed car crash sound, as well as a sharp gasp of breath from the driver before a collision.

There is also a driver profile feature. This shows the precision or aggression used in races and the total driver points of a player. There is a total of 19 tracks that can be raced in more than 50 ways and a total of 72 cars.
