Electronic Arts and Criterion Games have just released the first details about the pre-order bonuses for Need for Speed: Most Wanted, while highlighting the game’s Limited Edition, which includes more special things.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted is set to bring the racing game series back into the spotlight after the rather lackluster NFS: The Run
from last year.
We already heard quite a lot of things
about the game last month at E3 2012, including a few videos and some rather stunning screenshots.
Now, developer Criterion Games and publisher EA have revealed the pre-order bonuses that are now available at different retailers. What’s more, all copies of the game that are pre-purchased are automatically upgraded to the Limited Edition, which includes special bonuses like two cars and double Speed Points for the first four hours in multiplayer:
- Four hours of Double Speed Points
: Players earn double speed points throughout the first four hours of multiplayer
- 2012 Porsche 911 Carerra S
: Optimized Aerodynamic Body that reduces drag for maximum speed and Nitrous Burn, delivering efficient and sustained speed boosts
- Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale
: A Race Pack Powertrain tuned for increased power and the impact protection modification to provide increased stability and strength when driving at breakneck speeds
Besides these goodies, different retailers will offer special pre-order cars that have been specifically tuned for different play styles. Speed Pack: The Caterham Superlight R500 in the exclusive Satin Black livery, featuring the Track Tyres Modification for improved road handling, and the Lightweight Chassis Modification allowing players to reach mesmerizing speeds
Strike Pack: The Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series in the exclusive Satin Black livery, featuring the Power Pack Powertrain Modification for an engine tuned for torque, acceleration and the ability to reach breakneck speeds, and the Re-inflating Tyres Modification making it easier to survive and counter rivals' attempts to slow players down
Power Pack: The Ford F-150 SVT Raptor in the exclusive Satin Black livery, featuring the Reinforced Chassis Modification for taking increased damage, and the powerful and violent Nitrous Dump Modification for making tight jumps and powered up takedowns
All these cars can be unlocked by progressing through the game’s single-player and multiplayer campaigns but those who pre-order receive them immediately.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted is out for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 30, in North America, and November 1, in Europe.
