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.

then gamespot needs to rewrite that correctly, they have it listed wrong "Today, EA announced that two DLC packs are now available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC editions" fix your mistakes gamespot, or get ahold of whom ever gave you that information and let them know they gave you bad info, its not available on the xbox marketplace, not that i would pay for the content, but free stuff is always welcome.

Because it's available ATM, for download only on the PS3 format... QUOTE "Interestingly, the downloads are currently only available for the PlayStation 3, though EA notes that both packs are "coming soon" for the Xbox 360 and PC. Until then, drivers are urged to turn off their ignition and wait patiently for their turn at the pump." UNQUOTE

The game wasn't that bad... its just that it was too easy, even the master events which was disappointing. The thing i don't get is whats the point of giving us cars we already have or could mod into?

Downloadable content or not. EA made only a fair game at best, and these are not the steps towards making it better.

The offline lag really ticks me off.I play a 6:30 race and at 6:10 it will start offline lagging and screw everything up.I can't get back those minutes of my life.I did like the story,short one liners,but I liked it.

This game sucks and no downloadable content is going to change that. Simple.

No ofence but some weak downloadible content still wount make this game good. Mainly it would need a HARD dificulty and not the one where you can stand on start for good minute just to catch up and take first place in half a min. This game needs to be more challenging

I don't even think I own Undercover. I think my son had it, but traded it in. I have the one before Undercover got released. I am looking forward to playing NFS: Shift. That games looks pretty impressive. It's sad that the NFS games have gotten worse and worse. the ones that got released on the PS2 and XBox were pretty good. Hot Pursuit was one of the best.

You know why Black Box got closed down? Two reasons: 1. The costs of maintaining a studio in Vancouver, one of the most expensive cities in the world. 2. The developers being lazy dip****s who didn't even care how their games will turn out as long as they make money. Look at the last two NFS games, and Skate 2 is filled with tons of obvious glitches. They released a patch for it, but guess what? It fixed nearly nothing. Some parts it even made worse. Good ridden.

Something just doesn't seem right with buying cars that are already available to unlock on the game. I just can't see paying cash for something that can be available later as it is unlocked.

Wow. $5 to unlock cars that are already on the disc. Thanks EA. But, the free DLC is appreciated.
