Video PC Xbox 360 PS3

Because SHIFT 2 Unleashed has now been officially unleashed all around the world, we decided to show you more of the game. So today, you are getting a few PC videos in 720p and 60 fps, a 360 video at the wheel of a Lamborghini Murciélago at Spa and last, but not least, a breathtaking 1080p video captured at 30 fps (PC) on the famous Nürburgring with a Zonda. If you want more, we will try to comply. Just let us know.
Note: Again the PC videos are in French, sorry about that.
Update: Added a video showing the upgrades, customizations and tuning, as asked, a gameplay video without HUD in Miami and its replay.
Update 2: Nürburgring night replay added.
Update 3: Bathurst and Riviera replays added (replay cam during first lap, helmet cam in the second).

Perhaps you could make a video while tuning a car. Maybe one of the beginner cars just to see some modifications. That's what I loved the most about Shift 1, the tuning and modding was really cool.

Love it, day one purchase for sure. Just noticed though on the Spa Lamborghini (360) vid, that random black splats appear on the windscreen then slowly fade out. No doubt this is supposed to be road grime, or bits of rubber. But how would this be possible if the car doesn't have another car in front of it to flick the dirt up?, he's the only one on the track?!?

Its looks way too much like Shift 1. The engine sound is exactly the same and the handling seems the same too.

Hehe that's not Drift here, I did this video, but you still can thank him as he told me someone asked for this video :p
I've found how to set the game in English and now Drift will be able too.

I will upload 3 more videos, all 1080p, two on Miami, and one on the Nurburgring (GP) at night.
I'll try to make some drift videos, but it's really hard to master.

Loves the Scirocco too <3

Yep I tried both, I'll do a video of Bathurst tomorrow if I have time, Monaco (its remake) was already in the first Shift (DLC), but maybe I'll do one at night ^^

EDIT : Miami gameplay video is online, replay to follow.

Thanks man !!! Great stuff !!

Helmet cam is really cool. And I like how the side mirrors and windshield wipers vibrate with the speed. Looking forward to seeing Bathurst.

What's up with headlights in night videos. Is it max setting ? It should work fine on PC I would think. Gfx look good though. NFS HP was also nice looking game with no cockpits.

An onboard lap of Bathurst on the PC version would be great!

Bathurst added, Riviera (Monaco remake) at night in less than one hour.

In both videos I did two laps and recorded the replay this way : first lap with replay cam and the second with helmet cam (so it looks like gameplay).

Awesome, awesome job guys !!! Can't thank you enough for the vids.

The Bathurst race was great. The replays have improved a lot since Shift 1, more at daylight than at night(didn't look so good in Monaco). That Zonda is pure orgasm.

Thanks again, this is why Gamersyde is one of my favorite game-related sites ;)

It looks cool but I also think something is wrong with lights in night racing.

wow you must be really pushing your PC's as some of the replays you can see the frame rate drop quite a lot, though through the most part thats down to fraps (im guessing thats what your using to capture the gameplay footage) maybe turning v-sync off might help get a few fps back only youll get more screen tearing, also is there an option in the game to chose what music tracks you can turn off (the music from the 360 replay lap wasnt really that good in fact it sounded quite depressing i just hope not all of the music is like that.)

Thanks to the video of Helmet cam, I rushed out and picked up a copy. So glad I did, that's the most immersive racing experience I have had outside of doing it for real.

Bought the game yesterday, (360). Great game, but my word it crashes a lot. I've had it freeze 5 times when changing wheels on the car :(

played some of this round my mates house using his G27 wheel, and it's a very odd experience in terms of handling. the wheel goes loose at random times, makes you feel like you've broke it mid corner since the force feedback seems to just turn off, the helmet cam is more an annoyance then a decent addition, and the game, on the whole, looks pretty lackluster visually. it's OK for what it is. but where i was impressed playing GT5 with a wheel, this has left me seriously underwhelmed. maybe more time is needed to get used to it. but i don't think i'm really going to enjoy it that much...and what's with the lack of music while racing?
