EA’s to release new cars, tracks and game modes for Shift 2 Unleashed as part of the the Speedhunters DLC pack next Tuesday, May 17th.
Available for 800 MS Points (£6.85) on Xbox Live and £7.99 on PSN, EA says the digital expansion will introduce “a whole new career path with new game modes, cars and tracks inspired by the expansive network of automotive photographers, journalists and drivers at Speedhunters.com”.
“The Shift 2 Unleashed Speedhunters content pack contains two new branches including Drag and Standing mile. Each branch features nine new events, where players will only be able to use the manual gear change so that they can really feel what it’s like to be in the driver’s seat.
“Drag judges the fastest time over a quarter mile stretch, and Standing Mile judges the fastest speed achieved over a mile stretch. Both branches allows for new high-power customisation options where players can create 1000 horsepower engines capable of reaching speeds of over 250 mph.”
