Driver: San Francisco will put you back in control of the series' original wheelman, Tanner. In order to keep this installment fresh, Ubisoft has integrated a new shift mode that will keep drivers on their toes. In his preview, Miguel Concepcion had this to say about the new mode:
"I initially thought that this was some not-too-subtle way of adding filler to the total playtime, but I was assured that many of these scenes outside of Tanner's body do have some relevancy to the main plot. If anything, many of these missions were actually fun, although the characters didn't necessarily sound or act distinctly "San Franciscan." At one point, I was part of a roving camera crew looking to capture some accidents on film. So I then jumped into the body of another car to give the camera crew what they wanted, even if it did mean a head-on collision."
