Hey, remember Need for Speed Unbound? Yeah, we know. As quickly as it came out, it disappeared from the public eye even quicker, but there is still a small but loyal fanbase that enjoys this very unusual sequel of EA’s renowned street racing series. Ironically, Unbound keeps getting better through regular free expansions that are grouped into larger Content Updates, and now the third one has arrived, so let’s see what it brings. Here’s everything new in NFS Unbound Vol 3 content update.
What’s New in NFS Unbound Vol 3?
Vol 3 Content Update for Need For Speed Unbound introduces the Speed Pass – the new progression system that rewards players with free customizations and cosmetics (across all 75 ranks).
The highlight of this Content Update is, no doubt, the legendary DMC DeLorean (1981) that you can add to your garage after teaming up with the Lakeshore street racing community and finishing 12 Linkups.
NFS Unbound Vol 3 Content Update By The Numbers
- 3 Drift Playlists.
- 13 Weekly Challenge sets.
- 29 Daily Challenges.
- 15 One Shot challenges.
More Quality of Life Changes in NFS Unbound Vol 3 Content Update
And on top of that, there are some additional quality-of-life changes; now you can manually change the time of the day and teleport freely across the city map during the free roam, and there’s a new chat wheel with 50 phrases and emotes.
So, is all this reason enough to return to Need for Speed Unbound? Well, it depends. If you’ve already spent a lot of time in the base game, maybe this won’t be enough to bring you back, but if you played the launch version a little, then after these two volumes of content updates, you now have a much more complete game – so give it a shot.
