About This Game

HEAD TO HEAD

Jump straight into the competition in Vol. 6 with a new PVP mode, offering immediate action from the MP garage, and featuring weekly playlists. The head to head intensifies with Audi's entrance, highlighting their racing heritage. The RS 6 Avant (2020) debuts, bringing its unique elegance and power to NFS, and joining it are the fully customizable R8 Coupé (2019) and S5 Sportback (2017), all with unique bodykits, custom liveries, and distinct handling and audio. Earn status across both SP and MP with the new Rank system, and complete a brand new Speed Pass. Vol. 6 also introduces a new approach to premium content, replacing Customs and Swag Packs with an optional Premium Speed Pass track that grants you access to the top-tier stuff.

BE NOTORIOUS

You have taken on everyone and reached the top of the scene. In Need for Speed™ Unbound Volume 5, everybody knows your name, and you’re not going anywhere. Volume 5 delivers a new refreshed Speed Pass bringing 75 FREE ranks with retro kaleidoscopic cosmetics and customizations. Reach rank 50 and cruise the scene in the Buick Grand National GNX (1987). Shroud the streets in dark humor by heading to the store for new premium content packs including the “Trick or Street Swag Pack”, bringing to life the Legendary Custom MINI John Cooper Works Countryman '17 plus clothing pack, Skeleton Head mask, driving effect, exclusive horn, and more! With new vehicles, liveries, outfits, and customisations, Need for Speed™ Unbound Volume 5 delivers even more ways for you to be notorious and gain infamy.

CELEBRATE THE STREETS

Need for Speed Unbound Volume 4 celebrates your status on the streets of Lakeshore, but your outrageous style and skills mean the cops want to take you down in new Gauntlet Playlists. Feel the rush of the chase, but get busted and you lose your shot at big rewards! The celebrations continue at the Kennedy Test Track where you can tear it up in unique Porsche 75th anniversary events, plus new refreshed Speed Pass brings 75 ranks with new free cosmetics and customizations. Wheelspin through lvl 50 to earn the wildest Porsche 911 Legendary Custom that Lakeshore has seen. For the ultimate celebration of street style, head to the Store for the premium Hip Hop Origin Swag Pack, honoring the roots of hip hop with the Legendary Custom Mercedes-AMG G 63 (2017) plus clothing pack, a Doberman mask, Driving Effect, exclusive Horn, and more.



LINKUP, RANK UP, GEAR UP

Need for Speed Unbound Vol 3 brings the Lakeshore community together with the introduction of Linkups, a new free-roam feature pushing street racers to the limit through intense stunt-based heroic driving challenges. Blast through a series of escalating difficulty objectives at 7 locations across the map to earn XP, Bank, and maybe even the Top Player title! When the event draws to a close, you’ll still have to shake off the cops to hold on to all your hard-earned cash. Complete 12 Linkups to get the DMC DeLorean (1981) as a new Challenge reward. You’ve worked for that XP, now make the XP work for you! Rank up in Lakeshore with Speed Pass, which brings new ways to reward your progression with 75 free cosmetics and customizations, including the Legendary Custom Dodge SRT Viper 2014. Plus, elevate your style to the next level and show the streets what you’re about with new premium content in the Store, including the mecha-themed Robojets Swag Pack, a Legendary Custom Ford Mustang GT (2015) with a 10 level Speed Pass boost, and a Vol. 3 Customs Pack.



TEAR UP THE STREETS, CONTROL THE CHASE.

Tearing up the streets with friends brings more challenges as Need for Speed Unbound Vol 2 introduces new ways to compare and compete with the squad in Lakeshore Online, and even more opportunities to risk it all for rewards.
