The first Downloadable Content for Shift 2 Unleashed, the Speedhunters pack, is now available on Xbox Live Marketplace for 800 points, and will be coming to the Playstation Network shortly after the recent problems Sony has been experiencing.
The Speedhunters pack features two new career modes, with Drag and Standing Mile options. Both require manual gears to play, and have nine new events which will see traction control disabled, and a new rev counter and gear indicator on the HUD. The Drag mode rewards the fastest time over a traditional quarter mile stretch, whilst Standing Mile simply goes on the fastest speed acheived, with new tuning options allowing 1000 horsepower engines and speeds over 250mph.
One of the two new rivals in the Speedhunter pack will be Chris Rado, who competes in time attack and drag events, and you’ll be able to win his World Racing Pro-FWD Reaper Scion tC.
The events will take place on six tracks in three new locations – one of which is brand new to the game. They’re the new Agueda track in Portugal, a drag and standing mile version of the Japanese Miyatomi circuit, and similar options at the Nevada Freight Depot.
And in addition to the new modes and locations, you also get some new cars – 12 in fact:
- Dodge Challenger RT Speedhunters Edition
- Lexus LFA Speedhunters Edition
- Mazda RX-7 (FC3S) Speedhunters Edition
- McLaren MP4-12C Speedhunters Edition
- Pagani Huarya Speedhunters Edition
- Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evolutions 2 Speedhunters Edition
- Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Speedhunters Edition
- Mitsubishi Lancer EVOUTION IX MR-Edition Speedhunters Edition
- Nissan Fairlady 240ZG (S30) Speedhunters Edition
- Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R (C10) Speedhunters Edition
- Nissan Skyline GT-R (R32) Speedhunters Edition
- Toyota Supra Speedhunters Edition
All the cars have been tuned specifically by Speedhunters. We’re looking forward to seeing how the 190E compares with the one we tuned for the IFCA Production championship in Forza for a nice cross-game car comparison (Remember our comparison of the Delorean in GT5 and Forza?)
