Black Box today announced
that Need For Speed Undercover
will be arriving November 18 in North America and Novermber 21 in Europe. The game brings cop chases back to the series and features actress Maggie Q -- famous for her roles in Live Free or Die Hard
and Mission Impossible III
(not to mention having a letter for a last name) -- in live action segments that "propel the original story." Q plays a federal agent, described as "a seductive handler who recruits and guides players as they go undercover." Let's get this straight, a sexy woman recruits you so you can become an undercover agent that drives awesome cars for a living? So, basically, it's a 15-year-old's fantasy come true.
For what it's worth, Black Box claims that Undercover
"takes the franchise
back to its roots" and throws police chases back into the mix. No word on whether or not the police involved are also sexy.
