E3 2010: Great Trailer for DRIVER: SAN FRANCISCO

Ubisoft revealed a fantastic new trailer for their upcoming video game Driver: San Francisco. I have to admit, when I first heard about the game I wasn't really interested in it, but then I saw this trailer at E3 and I was completely sold! This game looks awesome! The graphics are incredible, and this trailer does a great job of pumping up the game with its fast paced action-packed driving madness. I don't see how you can watch this trailer and not be excited to play this game. 

The game takes place after the events of Driv3r. It is revealed that both John Tanner and Charles Jericho survived the shootout in Istanbul. However, after Jericho shot Tanner, he is taken to a hospital and left into a coma.

The game is similar to previous games in the series. The player controls Tanner in various missions through the streets of San Francisco. A new feature is "Shift", which allows Tanner to shift into another car and continue the mission. The player can recharge the Shift meter by doing things like long powerslides, big jumps and driving into incoming trafic. Martin also said that one of the inspirations for the Shift comes from Google Earth. For the first time in the series, the game will include over 120 fully damageable licensed vehicles including Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Ruf, Dodge Challenger, Pagani Zonda and the DeLorean DMC-12. The Film Director mode, which was absent from Parallel Lines, will also return. The on foot sections of previous games has also been scrapped. The game also runs on 50 frames per second. Martin also said that San Francisco will include one of the largest driving environments seen, with about 208 miles of road. The game's San Francisco will recreate various landmarks including the Bay Bridge and Marin County. Multiplayer will also be available for the first time in the series with nine different game modes, including the Trail Blazer, where the player the has to follow the trail of an AI-controlled car.
