Need for Speed Heat announces Spring update with new cars, challenges and customisations

Need for Speed Heat has announced a new spring update that brings players more dream cars to customize, tune, and push past the limit.

Need for Speed Heat will see new whips added to the game via a Black Market Delivery. This Car Pack includes a free and paid option that adds new rides, challenge sets, character outfits, customization items and vanity items. See below for a full breakdown.

The update will be added to the game today (Tuesday 3rd March).

Black Market Car Pack #1

  • Free – Aston Martin DB11 Volante (2018)
    • Narrative setting with VO
    • 6x Challenge Sets for the player to complete (3-5 hours of gameplay) featuring both recycled (activities) and new content (exclusive new events)
    • Character outfits
    • Customization items
    • Vanity items
  • $4.99 – McLaren F1 (1993)
    • Narrative setting with VO

During Black Market Deliveries, players will meet Raziel – an underground car dealer who imports two types of cars: variants of already existing cars, available for free and spanking new ones available for real money purchases. To get behind the wheel of the imports, simply head down to Port Murphy and pick them up from a shipping container. This opens a small narrative tied to the car where Raziel will ask the player for a few favors in order to receive a reward. Complete the challenges to get visual customization parts for a new ride, character outfits, and effects fitting the car’s theme. Throughout the journey, players will also discover new events that can be replayed once the Black Market challenge is complete.

Need for Speed Heat also received several quality of life improvements, and last January received an update that gave racers the ability to plug in their own steering wheel, a chat wheel function and a Keys to the Map paid option to instantly reveal locations on the in-game map, including collectibles, activities, and gas stations.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
