Employ New Tactics In Team Racing Mode For SHIFT

Sometimes, the downloadable content for a game just doesn't seem worth the effort. But when we're talking about an all new gameplay mode...

Next month, EA will introduce Team Racing into Need for Speed: SHIFT, which will infuse a good deal of strategy into the online multiplayer experience, as well as add five new legendary vehicles. According to Kotaku, this new mode will place two teams with six racers apiece against each other and it's not always about you winning a race. No, sometimes, depending on how things play out, your team might actually fare better if you lose. The five bad-ass cars included in the pack are as follows:

  • 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 427
  • 1967 Shelby GT-500
  • 1969 Dodge Charger R/T
  • 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T
  • 1998 Toyota Supra Mark IV

This Team Racing Pack will be available everywhere for the Xbox 360 on December 1 but PS3 owners have to wait a bit; it'll arrive for European PS3s on December 3 and North American PS3 consoles on December 10. By now, you should've had sufficient time to become a pretty damn good cockpit racer so this will be your chance to prove it to other enthusiasts. Team battle ought to be a blast!

Nice. Based on what I have read, consider it a purchase if the price is right.

Oh, and I dig that car list...

Anybody know the price?

I got the DFGT like you guys suggested a long time ago. Shift works really bad with it, at first i thought i was just very bad but then i borrowed GT:P from a friend and it works great with that. Shift is a ton of fun, i just wich they'd have a patch for my new wheel.

I haven't had the time to check myself, but did they ever issue a patch or update for the suspension/physics glitches?

I don't think those cars are "Legendary" but the SUPRA IS FOR SURE. The rally, Super GT, and other racing series it belonged to is outstanding

When they say "team racing", do they mean each member of a team driving their own car, or a team in each and every car? Its obvious I know nothing about racing games.

I would assume they mean that six people in six cars = one team. So you could have some people block the other team's cars while some of your guys gain an insurmountable lead, and that sort of thing.

I was just playing the demo for this the other day. I thought the city race was a blast. Think I need a little more practice on the other track though :) Love the American musclecars in that pack.

best simulator ive played this gen.
o wait its the only simulator ive played this gen.
ok enough of this huzzle dazzle hurry up and release hot pursuit 3.
what is it with EA and refusing to release sequels to there hit games?
i mean pandemic have turned out nothing but sh*t so they give them the green to make new games.
they give the green to sports titles, but to the games who made them who they are?
nope still waiting on those.
if it was not for hot pursuit and BLACK, EA would not be half the company they are now.
