Need for Speed: The Run Gets an Italian Flavour

By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
The "Italian Edition Pack” was released for https://www.trueachievements.com/Need-for-Speed-The-Run....htm on the PlayStation Network on Tuesday, but it failed to appear on Xbox LIVE. We were left wondering whether to cover the pack details due to the risk that the DLC may be exclusive to the PS3. We need not have worried; two days later than usual, the pack has been released onto the Xbox Marketplace without fanfare.

The pack adds seven new cars to the game:

2010 Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione
