Slow down for one second speed racers, we’ve got some big news for fans of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit!
They’ve just announced 3 new DLC packs being released for the game which will not only include new cars, but new events, achievements, and 2 all new racing modes, “Most Wanted” and “Arms Race”!
Here’s what we’re looking at:
Need for Speed Hot Pursuit: Armed and Dangerous
Armed and Dangerous introduces 2 new game modes which finally make use of the entire open world streets. The first new mode “Most Wanted”, features 1 specific racer needing to be stopped by the police cars, while all the other racers will try and protect that one specific racer from being busted. Think of it like a cop chase version of capture the flag except the only flag is at the end of the game and only that specific racer needs to get to it. Next up we have “Arms Race” which pits racers against each other while allowing you to use the real world weapons available in the Hot Pursuit modes of the game like Spike Strips, EMP’s, etc..
Armed and Dangerous will be available beginning February 22 for £5.49 (560 Microsoft Points) on the PlayStation®Network or Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit: Lamborghini Untamed
Lamborghini Untamed, the second DLC pack scheduled to be coming out will feature some of the world’s most exclusive Lambo’s (surprise surprise) and will be adding the following cars with a NFS twist to them:
Lamborghini Diablo SV
Lamborghini Countach LP5000 QV
Lamborghini Sesto Elemento
These will all be available to use as both cop and racer cars so don’t expect easy competition! Speaking of competition, along with these all new cars we’ll also be seeing 10 new events as well as 4 new trophies and achievements.
Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Lamborghini Untamed will be available beginning March 1 for £5.49 (560 Microsoft Points) on the PlayStation Network or Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
Need for Speed Hot Pursuit: Porsche Unleashed
Finally, last but most certainly not least we have the Porsche Unleashed DLC and it’s pretty much exactly what you think it is. 3 new Porsche vehicles will be making the roster along with another 10 new events, 4 new trophies and achievements as well!
Here are the new Porsche’s we’ll be seeing:
Porsche 911 Turbo (1982 Edition)
Porsche 911 Speedster
“The Porsche 911 Turbo is a high performance tier one car, designed to enable players to go back and reignite their earliest rivalries and beat their friends’ times. Also included in this pack are 10 new events and four new trophies and achievements.” – Sounds like not only are we getting more events, but we’re now gonna have all new challenges with all the older tracks we’ve fallen in love with. Awesome!
Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Porsche Unleashed will be available March 8 for £5.49 (560 Microsoft Points) on the PlayStation Network or Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
So a total of 20 new events, 6 new cars, and a bunch more achievements to pump up that virtual ego of yours! That’s one massive onslaught of speed demon DLC madness that EA and Criterion have headed our way.
I gotta admit, my copy of Hot Pursuit was starting to get a little too much downtime but with all of this coming out, I’ll be back in the races in no time!
