The next instalment in the Need for Speed series will be out in Europe on 21st November.

NFS Undercover is said to take the franchise back to its roots. You infiltrate a crime syndicate and must speed away from police in Hollywood-style car chases.

The Need for Speed girl this year is Maggie Q, who was the hard-hitting woman Bruce Willis had a fight with in Die Hard 4, and part of the team Ethan Hunt worked with in Mission Impossible III.

Maggie Q will act as the Federal Agent ordering you around in Undercover. She follows previous star turns from Kate out of Lost, Brook Burke and Josie Maran.

Need for Speed Undercover is in development for PC, Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, PSP, Wii, DS and mobile.
