The Need for Speed franchise nearly died, that is until SHIFT released this week. High review scores across the board have signaled a return to excellence, but until sales figures come in we’ll remain a tad skeptical.

However if you’re in the market to try before you buy, Electronic Arts released a Need for Speed: Shift demo for the PC version today.

In the demo you’ll traverse the world-famous Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps and‚  city circuit of London River in a BMW M3 (E46), 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10, 2006 Lotus Elise 111R, and a 2008 Nissan GT-R, with a a fifth available, the sleek and stylish 2006 Pagani Zonda F, if you collect enough stars with the others.

Worry not Xbox 360 and PS3 racing fans, as Electronic Arts is promising a demo for you guys in early October.
