REDWOOD CITY, Calif., June 17, 2004 –Electronic Arts (Nasdaq: ERTS), the world’s leading interactive software company, today announced that they have signed one of the world’s sexiest thrill seekers and cover girls, Brooke Burke, to star in Need For Speed™ Underground 2, the sequel to the best selling game of 2003, Need For Speed Underground.

In Need for Speed Underground 2, Burke plays the streetwise organizer of an elite underground racing circuit. Her character, Rachel, takes gamers under her wing, guiding them through the game’s massive free-roaming city, helping them become the top racer in the underground.

“I’m an absolute adrenaline junkie and car freak in real life, so starring in Need for Speed Underground 2 is a huge thrill,” Burke said. “Need for Speed Underground 2 really captures one of the reasons I love my cars so much – they’re a canvas for self-expression.”

Need for Speed Underground 2 challenges gamers to immerse themselves in the tuner culture, exploring an expansive, free-roaming city divided into five distinct neighborhoods. Gamers will encounter rival racers who will initiate events, tip players off to the hottest racing spots, and show them where to buy the most sought-after licensed aftermarket upgrades.

The new game delivers complete automotive self-expression with more than 30 of the hottest licensed turner cars and hundreds of aftermarket parts for nearly infinite visual and performance customization combinations.

Brooke Burke is recognized worldwide for her three-year stint as the adventurous host of E! Entertainment Television’s popular travel series, “Wild On,” as seen in 120 countries. Now that she has completed her assignment with E!, Burke continues to focus her attention on hosting and acting, and has landed roles in a number of television and film projects. Her official Web site is www.brookeburke.com.

Need for Speed Underground 2 is being developed by EA Canada and will be available on the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft, the Nintendo GameCube™, Game Boy® Advance and PC this fall, under the EA GAMES™ brand. The official home page for Need For Speed Underground 2 is www.needforspeed.com.

Obviously the definition of the term "news" has grown quite loose over the years. face-icon-small-tongue.gif

Brooke Burke? Adrenaline junkie? Ha!

I admit to tuning to "Wild on" every now and again, and anytime they were't doing anything glamourlous like going to clubs, hotels, Mrs.Brooke was always the scardey-cat. Such a tease too, but I digress....

Can't they make it NFSU2: Carmageddon so we can drive over celebs?

Free roaming city ey? EA's so cool. Oops, Rockstar did this last year with the much more fun Midnight Club II. I wonder if 'Need for Speed Underground 2: We try to look cool by paying actors to wear tight tops around the menu screens' will actually have decent crashes this time?

i own midnight club 2 and nfsug and i like nfsug a whole lot better. atleast they're doing something new with the sequel instead just more of the same.

Whenever I hear Brooke Burke now, I think of the Ill-Ustrated episode with E! Whack-off.

And the show is funny, but that part wasn't that great.
