I think it was Mahatma Gandi who famously said, “There is more to life than increasing its speed”. Which is wise and all but I bet Gandi never played a Need for Speed game (aside from the fact that he died in 1948).

Anyway, what I’m getting at is that any Petrolhead worth their gasoline knows that the Need for Speed series is where you go if you want to feed that need for, er, speed, and those players of the latest incarnation, Need for Speed Heat, can look forward to some additional content thanks to a spring update launching today, March 3.

Those wanting to inject some nitro into their current gaming experience will be excited to see new whips added via a Black Market Delivery, the new Black Market Car Pack #1 including both a free (!) and paid ($4.99) option that will add new rides (Aston Martin DB11 Volante circa 2018 or McLaren F1 circa 1993, respectively), challenge sets adding an extra 3-5 hours of gameplay, character outfits, customization and vanity items.

Drivers wanting to pick up this pack need only to head on down to Port Murphy and pick them up from a shipping container; this will open a small narrative tied to the car in which Raziel – an underground car dealer specializing in free and real money car imports – will ask a few favours of the player before parting with the reward.

So go grab the gear and get those donuts going!
