Ubi’s released a video walkthrough of Driver: San Francisco, showing some of the game’s features, new and old.

It starts off with a car chase between John Tanner and Jericho, which has the duo speeding through the streets knocking over garbage cans.

During the scene, we also get to see the inside of the vehicle – which Edmondson said was inspired by such films as The French Connection and Bullitt.

Later on, Edmondson says the whole city has 208 miles of road, making it one of the biggest driving areas in any videogame. He also chats about the new “Shift” feature, and the inclusion of 100 licensed cars.

You can read more about Driver: San Francisco in our recent preview here and also catch our interview with Martin Edmunson here.

Driver: San Francisco releases this holiday season for Mac, PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

A separate Wii title is also in the works.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    I was kinda anxious to see this one during E3, but now that i did…i don’t know. Doesn’t impress me at all, nowadays we got games like Midnight Club:LA or even just GTA IV for the driving alone…i just don’t see this one being all that interesting.

    Looks cool, but that shift thing makes no story sense at all. Tanner thinks he has that ability? What does he think? He can teleport into other cars? Then what does he think happens to the people driving them?

    The nice thing about Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes (obviouse source of inspiration) that it keeps the weird stuff low key enough that it makes you wonder what is going on. The shift thing is just too big.

    Well, the ‘shift’ thing is just as ridiculous as it sounded in the original press release.

    Other than that it looks pretty uninspiring. I’m not convinced there’s ‘enough’ in there to make it in the modern gaming world. The city looks fairly interesting, but if all there is to do is car-chase around it it’s going to get pretty dull pretty fast.

    Sooo, let me get this straight – they’re returning Driver back to its roots BUT adding all this new crazy shit as well… hmm. Not convinced. Do one thing or the other, but not both!
