Gymkhana Six

Σημείωσε την ημερομηνία: Δευτέρα 11 Νοεμβρίου 2013. Τότε ο Ken Block θα ανεβάσει στο YouTube το έκτο Gymkhana video του, το οποίο αυτή τη φορά έγινε σε συνεργασία με την Electronic Arts και τo Νeed For Speed.


Στην φωτογραφία ανακοίνωσης του νέου video υπάρχει και μια Lamgorghini Aventador ντυμένη ως περιπολικό μαζί με το Ford Fiesta του Block, πράγμα που αφήνει ανοικτό το ενδεχόμενο στο νέο επικό video του Αμερικάνου να συμμετέχει και ο Ιταλικός ταύρος. Θα δούμε άραγε μια καταδίωξη ανάμεσα στο Fiesta και την Aventador στα πρότυπα του Need For Speed. Σαν σενάριο φαντάζει αρκετά λογικό. Δεν μπορώ να περιμένω μέχρι τις 11/11! Εσύ;

Working with Ken means lots of exciting content on the horizon coupled with Ken’s expertise on racing as he helps shape the future of Need for Speed. What kind of content? A new Gymkhana video debut – Gymkhana SIX – on November 11th on the Need for Speed website and YouTube channel featuring the most visually compelling compact Gymkhana race course to date. Even better—a Need for Speed version of Ken’s livery will also be available in the game to attempt stunts in. Check out our gallery for a sneak peek at GYM6, Ken’s in-game ride, and much more.

Ken Block Partners with Need for Speed

Today we’re excited to announce a multi-year partnership with global racing legend and action sports icon Ken Block! He’ll become a Racing Advisor on our team, giving us insight into what it takes to push the action and adrenaline of racing to new limits to help keep Need for Speed an amazing experience. Need for Speed is also sponsoring Block and his Ford Fiesta ST 2013 rally car and will work with him on the release of Gymkhana SIX, the next installment of the award-winning, record-breaking viral video series, via our Need for Speed You Tube channel.

A little more about Ken:

ESPN has recognized Block as one of the most influentialaction sports athletes in the world.

2005 Rookie of the Year in the Rally America Championship.

19 overall North American rally wins and five X-Games medals.

One of only four Americans to ever score points in the World Rally Championship.

Global fame for his incredible skill, pushing the sport of rally into mainstream popularity through his wildly successful Gymkhana video series. (The first five videos have enjoyed more than 250 million views to date).

The next video in this series, Gymkhana SIX, is coming November 11 and will once again raise the bar for what can be done behind-the-wheel of a car.

Sharing his feelings on the partnership, “I feel like [Need for Speed and EA] both have the same goal in mind – to let people live out a fantasy of really pushing the limits of what you can do in the driver’s seat” said Ken. “We’re excited to show you how we’re taking things to a new level in Gymkhana SIX in just a few weeks.”

We checked in with Ghost Games to get their thoughts on the whole thing. “Ken’s a true master of drifting, handling, and really turning the streets into a playground for cars. We were already huge fans of his before, and we know he will be a great asset in helping us provide gamers the most adrenaline-filled and fun racing experience in the industry as we move forward.”
