Need for Speed SHIFT Patch 1.02

The latest patch for Need for Speed: SHIFT which is meant to help improve your gaming experience
Need for Speed: Shift is another installment in the popular series that takes fans of the genre to new heights in racing. At its core, it's still an arcade racing game but this release introduces a prominent driving simulation component.

In Shift, car controlling is much more accurate than it was in previous releases, handling is much more realistic and thus the game is aimed at hard core gamers. Need for Speed: Shift offers over 60 cars to choose from along with 19 tracks to race on.

Like in all games in the series, you have to unlock cars by winning races and earning money. After each purchase, you are able to improve your car by applying both visual and performance upgrades.

By using this patch you can make sure that your registered version of the game is up to date and you can benefit from the latest features and gameplay improvements that have been made available.

Main features:

  • True Driver’s Experience:
  • A variety of visual cues delivers the true driver’s experience including a three-dimensional HUD that mimics driver head movement, inertia and G-forces. The depth of field also adjusts based on the speed of the car; so when the car is traveling at high speeds the perspective will shift to the distance putting the car/cockpit out of focus.
  • Driver Profile:
  • What kind of driver are you? Driver profile tracks the player’s evolution as a race driver from event to event. This system is made up of a driver’s personality on the track, their success rate and any profile points and badges accrued all of which work together to create a tailor-made career and game play experience. Driver profile is pervasive throughout all modes: career and online.
  • Dynamic Crash Effect:
  • When the player hits a static object or opponent car, the player will feel like they are 'taking damage'. A combination of visual and audio effects will leave the player disorientated and briefly disrupt the race.
  • Total Customization:
  • Need for Speed SHIFT features a comprehensive customization option that lets the player tailor every aspect of the cars performance and styling. Go under the hood to upgrade and tune your vehicle to increase its performance. The visual customization system allows players to personalize both the exterior and trick out the interior to reflect their individual style and preferences.
  • Photo Real Cars and Tracks:
  • Nearly 70 licensed cars are available including the Pagani Zonda F, Audi RS4, and Porsche 911 GT3 RSR. There is also over 15 real-world locations like Willow Springs and Laguna Seca as well as fictional circuits like downtown London and Tokyo.
