Like Skate 2, Need for Speed Undercover won't go without downloadable content just because EA made substantive cuts at its developer, EA Black Box studio. Today, EA announced that two DLC packs are now available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC editions of the latest iteration in the street-racing series.
The Challenge Series DLC pack is available free of charge, and includes two game modes, three cars, and 60 new events. Highway Wars mode melds Undercover's Highway Battles mode with sprint racing; players race against three AI-controlled opponents to be the first to cross the finish line. Highway Checkpoint plays out like classic arcade racing, with players racing the clock to make it to subsequent checkpoints. The Mazda RX-7, Porsche 911 GT2, and Corvette Z06 can be unlocked as players pass certain requirements related to the 60 new challenge events.
NFS Undercover racers looking to part with some cash can also pick up the Boss Car Pack today. Available for $5 (400 Microsoft points), the premium DLC pack contains the eight cars featured as the bosses' rides in Undercover. Specifically, the cars available in this pack are: Carmen's Shelby GT500, Chase's BMW M6, Chau Wu's Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG, G-Mac's Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4, Hector's Nissan 370Z, Nickel's Dodge Viper SRT10, Rose's Porsche 911 GT2, and Zack's Volkswagen Scirocco.
