Latest Need For Speed Update Detailed

By Andy Mills, 2 years ago
There's a new update for Need for Speed and it is adding a fair bit to the game, so let's get down to the details.

First up, Eddie - an old enemy all the way back from Need For Speed: Underground - is making his way to Ventura Bay alongside Melissa. You'll be able to compete in a series of events before facing off against Eddie himself, with an opportunity to win his Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec.

Next up, there's 113 new customization items being added across six new cars. Those six cars are as follows:
