The Run: Time Savers Pack

EA just announced the Time Savers Pack, grab it on xbox live to get all the cars, challanges and content right from the start, or to say it with Coulters words: “When the game comes out tomorrow, download the Time Savers Pack and you’ll have every car in the game at your fingertips, from the Aston Martins to the Zondas.”

The Run: Soundtrack Announced

EA just announced the official soundtrack for The Run, so i thought before the rest comes up, i post this song here, since its on the list 😉


We’re only days away from The Run! While we’re still rolling out the final car unveils, we wanted you to see what songs you’ll be listening to as you speed across the United States.

However, unlike previous Need for Speed titles, the soundtrack isn’t a jukebox or radio that just plays songs as you go.

The soundtrack reflects our main character Jack’s experiences and races. It’s an integral part of the story of the game.  The songs are seamlessly combined with a full score by Hollywood composer Brian Tyler (“Fast Five, Battle for Los Angeles”) to create the ultimate Need for Speed music experience.  The soundtrack is strongly influenced by American regional styles, reflecting the San Francisco to New York race.

In other words, depending on where you are in the game, you’ll hear different songs to match the location, intensity, and mood of The Run!

Pretty cool, huh?

The Run: Pontiac Firebird Formula

In The Run, you’ll love rumbling past all 200 racers in this underrated Pontiac.

Beginning in 1978, Pontiac engineers reversed years of declining power by raising the compression ratio in the Pontiac 400 through the installation of different cylinder heads with smaller combustion chambers (1977 pontiac 400 engines also had the 350 heads bolted to the 400 blocks, these heads were known as the 6x-4 heads)(taken from the Pontiac 350). This increased power by 10% for a total of 220 during the 1978–79 model years. The 400/403 options remained available until 1979, when the 400 CID engines were only available in the 4-speed transmission Trans Ams and Formulas (the engines had actually been stockpiled from 1978, when PMD had cut production of the engine). 1979 marked the 10th Anniversary of the Trans Am, and a special anniversary package was made available: silver paint with a silver leather interior.
