Nearly every racing game on sale today's jumped aboard the DLC bandwagon, so it shouldn't be too much of a surprise to hear that the first details of Most Wanted's first downloadable pack have been announced.
Set to be released on December 18th and made available for copies on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC (there are no words yet saying whether or not it'll also be made available for the Vita version), the main headline grabbers for the 'Ultimate Speed Pack' are, undoubtedly, the cars.
The four additional cars that'll be made available for those who'll acquire the pack are, as the DLC's name suggests, pretty brisk: the motors in question are the McLaren F1 LM, the Lamborghini Aventador J, the Pagani Zonda R and the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse.
It's not just a few new sets of wheels that come with the Ultimate Speed Pack, though: it also contains a total of 25 additional events located around Fairhaven City, along with 70 types of what Criterion and EA call 'speed-themed milestones'.
And, to top it all off, a new Most Wanted head-to-head race is included in the pack, which pits you up against a hardened street racer at the helm of a Hennessey Venom GT Spyder.
Our only gripe with the Ultimate Speed Pack, though, is the price: whilst the £7.99 asking price isn't the steepest we've seen DLC, it certainly isn't the most affordable - the individual packs for Hot Pursuit and The Run, for instance, were all noticeably cheaper to buy.
That said, there are plenty of extra goodies that justify the sum of money being charged and, if it keeps us roaming and roaring around the confines of Fairhaven for a little while longer, we suppose it's not too unreasonably priced, if you think about it that way...
I love Most Wanted, I'm really really hoping that they bring out a police DLC, I really want to drive the Ford Crown Vic online with my mates playing cops & robbers around Fairhaven.
I love Most Wanted so it's a buy for me (and EA gave me a discount code).
Apparently the beta is locked at 30 fps on PC. I really hope the full PC release is unlocked because 30 fps may be a deal breaker for me. Admittedly though some games are more playable than others at 30 fps, unfortunately didn't get into the beta so I don't know what it plays like.
Every car in AC is so unique and feels so natural that it's genuinely exciting when we see something new. I look forward to testing this and the eagle eyed will have spotted it racing round an as yet unreleased Spa.
Is 3 cars enough for a pack? Is £1 per car worth it? Hmm it feels like 5-6 would have made for a better selection, I hope to test these out next week.
Just a simply good bye fix then. Now the focus on GT7, lets hope we see that in late 2015, though 2016 still looks more likely.
Yes I'm sure we'll see wet weather tyres implemented on a later build, either way it looks stunning so far and I look forward to testing wet conditions more when they improve the frame rate for triple screens.
