The last developer interview for Need For Speed The Run came out. It features game designer Justin McGuire, the man behing most of the cop AI and tactics for the game.
Some new features will be installed for The Run players regarding the strategy of the police cars chasing the racers. Most of the agressive actions made by the cops while positioned behind your vehicle are put to the side and the focus will be on blocking from side or front positions, decreasing reaction interval for you thus making it harder to evade.
Justin McGuire talks about replacing cantity with quality regarding cop cars from The Run. Instead of a big number of black and whites crashing all over the road, the number will be severly decreased while the AI will be increased. Check out the full interview below and go thorugh these final days before the launch as quickly as possible.

Need For Speed The Run Game Director Interview
Less then a month to go until the launch of Need For Speed The Run and the disscutions are still building up. This week the Game Director was interviewed and asked about the mechanism, parts and actual gameplay.
The game modes were modified in some points like the number of opponents racing at the same time, about the survival mode where the racer will face the cops from every direction.
Battle mode got my attention and, as Need For Speed The Run Game Director Justin Weibe said, the challenge in this scenario will be to catch and pass drivers in limited time and then hold the lead until the end of the clock. You should check out the full interview below.

While we are entering the final weeks before the launch of the next Need For Speed game of the franchize, Electronic Arts is bringing out the big guns.
A new (to the NFS series) Challenge Series concept will be featured starting Need For Speed The Run, designed for online and multiplayer mode. Over 70 challenges will be available in this new game mode, each of them allowing players from all over the world to compare times and climb all the way up in the main leaderboars.
You and your friends could also create a private chart and race each other for special cars to be unlocked for the winners. Sounds like hours of fun after the story mode is completed. Guess that the focus of Need For Speed The Run wasn’t only at the singleplayer mode after all. Check out the video.
