EA has unveiled some details on the brand new Driver Profile system for their upcoming game, Need for Speed: Shift. The Driver Profile is a new system that gives every player a unique experience based on the way they drive, and it will extend into the single-player career as well as the multiplayer modes. The Driver Profile feature was first shown at E3 earlier this month where Mitchell Francis won a brand new 2009 BMW M3 Coupe (and he immediately made many friends). The new system is based on four key components: Personality, which separates players into aggressive or precise driving styles. Success is fairly straightforward, it's whether you win or lose. Profile points are compiled every time you pass a car, every corner you master, and every opponent you take out. The final element are the Badges, which are basically in-game achievements. We'll get to see how this new system works when Need for Speed: Shift releases on the most major platforms this September.
