Three new downloadable content packs have been announced for Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, with the first one due for release on February 22nd, 2011.
The ‘Armed and Dangerous‘ pack contains two new games modes. ‘Most Wanted’ is an open world battle with cops out to tackle a specific racer as the racers battle to protect them by making use of the world, weaponry and team tactics. Meanwhile ‘Arms Race’ is every racer for themselves using their full arsenal of weapons. There are also three new tropics and achievements, and ‘Armed and Dangerous’ will be arrive on February 22nd for £5.49 (560 Microsoft Points) on Playstation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace.
The Lamborghini Untamed pack obviously includes examples of the famous Italian supercar brand, but the three vehicles (the Lamborghini Diablo SV, Countach LP5000 QV and Sesto Elemento) will be playable as both a cop and a racer. It also includes 10 new events, four new trophies and four new achievements. ‘Lamborghini Untamed’ will arrive on March 1, again costing £5.49 or 560 Microsoft Points.
The third pack, Porsche Unleashed adds some more cars to the existing selection in the game, with the 1982 Porsche 911 Turbo, the 959 and the 911 Speedster. The 911 Turbo is a high performance tier one car to let you go back to the earliest sections of the game and redo you times. It also includes 10 new events, four trophies and four achievements, and you can probably guess it costs £5.49 or 560 Microsoft Points. It’ll be out on March 8th.
So in total you’ll get 2 new game modes, 6 new cars, 11 new tropies and 11 new achievements for £16.47 or 1680 MS Points. We’ll let you judge whether you think that’s good value of not, but has noone pointed out the confusion between ‘Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Porsche Unleashed’ and Shift 2: Unleashed which is the game not featuring Need for Speed in the title anymore?
