EA Offering BMW M3 in NFS SHIFT Contest

Yesterday Electronic Arts announced that its giving away a brand new 2010 BMW M3 on its Need for Speed Twitter page. Although Need for Speed SHIFT has already racked in admirable scores from major gaming websites, Electronic Arts evidently feels the need to promote the just-released game even further. Now it's offering the sexy hot car and other prizes through a promotional contest, the Need for Speed M3 Missions Sweepstakes. But hey, who wouldn't want to win a new BMW?

According to Electronic Arts, there will be five daily missions posted on Twitter daring followers to complete various challenges. The company said that fans must follow @NeedforSpeed.com on Twitter and complete at least one of the five missions. However, the more missions a follower completes, the greater the chances are to win the BMW. However, there can be only up to five entries per person even if all five missions are completed.

"Need for Speed SHIFT redefines the racing genre by combining real world physics with perception based G-forces," the company said. "The game introduces a brutal first-person crash dynamic that creates an unparalleled immersive experience. The signature cockpit view delivers a true driver’s experience. Need for Speed SHIFT further personalizes the experience through the all-new driver profile -- a unique persona based on the driving skill and style of each player. Need for Speed SHIFT is the most realistic and intensive authentic racing game ever."

Outside the car, EA will offer other prizes including copies of Need for Speed SHIFT, an Xbox 360 console and wireless racing wheel, other EA games, concert tickets (to what EA didn't specify), and more.
