Are you ready to battle your friends and earn experience to unlock new tiers of equipment? Does that sound like something you'd like to do this November? Yeah, you could go out and get Call of Duty or Battlefield if you wanted, or you could try and keep your guns in your pants and do that same thing in Need For Speed Rivals in a car!

That's right... choose your side, cops or racers, and every time you bust a racer or evade a cop you'll earn more of that sweet XP which you can then turn into shiny new vehicles or dangerous new gadgets. It's a nice change of pace to show off your twitch steering skills instead of your twitch shooting skills, right?

If you want to get a closer look at how the new system works check out the latest trailer below. As a long time fan of the Need for Speed series (I've waxed poetic about the 3DO version quite a few times) AND someone who believes that yes, rubbing is racing, but smashing is even better racing I'm pretty excited for this game.

Coming to both the PS3 and PS4 later this fall, Rivals should inject some new life into the venerable series through what looks to be the most seamless offline to online experience to date.
