Shift 2 Unleashed Speedhunters DLC Announced

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
Another DLC pack is inbound for Need for Speed: SHIFT 2: Unleashed. The "Speedhunters Pack" offers players a chance to take a whole new career path with the addition of two new game modes, 14 cars and six tracks inspired by the website. The DLC will add six new achievements worth a total of 80G.

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. This means the traction control features will be forced off and the HUD will display a new rev counter and gear indicator. The difference between the two modes is simple – 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 customization options where players can create 1000 horsepower engines capable of reaching speeds of over 250 mph.

The Speedhunters content pack features two brand new cars: "Chris Rado’s World Racing Pro-FWD Reaper Scion tC and Koz’s Dodge Viper GTS by Twins Turbo". There are also an additional 12 "specially tuned Speedhunters vehicles". Here is a full list of the extra cars:
