After announcing the sequel in November last year, EA has pinned a New Zealand release date on the multiplatform racer.
Shift 2 Unleashed will be available in Australia and New Zealand on March 24th, 2011.
Pre-ordering the game gets you exclusive access to the Nissan Silvia spec.R Aero (S15), the Alfa Romeo Giulietta QV, and the Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 and 40 career events.
These include Single-Type race events where your “skill is pushed to the limits as each player competes in the same make of car; Old vs. New Challenge events in which classic cars go head-to-head against their modern counterparts; and Manufacturer Showdown events that pits some of the most iconic car rivalries against each other in an all-out-battle to prove which car is the best,” says EA.
Developed by Slightly Mad Studios in the UK, Shift 2 Unleashed will launch for 360, PS3 and PC.
Hands up who'll be pre-ordering then.
