Need for Speed’s Next Update Adds New Customzation Items, Music Tracks and More

NFS

EA and Ghost Games’ Need for Speed reboot is getting its second free update tomorrow and it will deliver a plethora of new content that’ll be sure to please fans of older NFS titles.

The ‘Legends’ update will see the return of Eddie (NFS: Underground, NFS: U2), who will provide players with a series of new racing events to overcome.

He’s put together a list of the hottest street racers in Ventura Bay and you’re on it! He isn’t alone though as he’ll be accompanied by Melissa. She’ll be in touch as you look to compete in a series of knock-out events to earn a shot at Eddie himself, with the goal of walking away with his tricked out Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec (1999).

Longtime Need for Speed fans will be pleased to learn that several of their favorite songs are also returning. Players will be able to listen to the likes of ‘The Baddest’ from Underground 2 and ‘Romulus 3 (NFS II), as they race through the streets of Ventura Bay.
