The marketing band wagon has been out in full force today for EA’s upcoming title – Need for Speed: Carbon. Today we’ve had the announcements of the cover art, screenshots an also today we can bring you some factoids on the title, so here are some words straight from the EA camp.

The battle for the city is won in the canyon as Need for SpeedTM Carbon immerses you in the world’s most dangerous and adrenaline-filled form of street racing.

For the first time in a Need for Speed game, build a crew and race in an all-out war for your city against rival crews and opposing car classes. You’ll risk everything to take over rival neighborhoods one street at a time.

Each crew member has unique skills that you trigger during races to give you the winning edge over opponents. Call on a Blocker to create a distraction and slow down other racers or a Scout to lead you to shortcuts on the track.

As the police turn up the heat and force the races to the outskirts of the city, the battle ultimately shifts to Carbon Canyon, where territories and reputations can be lost on every perilous curve.

Use your creativity to design your crew’s cars with the revolutionary new AutoscupltTM car customization tool that gives you the power to turn every vehicle into the car you’ve always wanted.
