Need for Speed Unbound is a highly entertaining arcade racer, but let's be honest, the online multiplayer and post-game experience isn't particularly interesting. That looks set to change pretty soon, though, as developer Criterion has just announced the first post-launch update, called Volume 2.
This free game update is a pretty big one, adding new events, rewards, and ways to interact. The online play will see some major changes, the most pertinent being the addition of the police. You can currently get away with murder while playing online, but with this update, the police will react to your actions and will give chase, as they do offline. The addition of night should help to liven things up a bit, too.
Elsewhere, there are lots of new challenges and events to play online. This includes 40 new daily challenges, 30 Hot Lap activities, and several new events across Endurance, Rumble, and Race types. The update will also bring new cosmetic rewards for you to earn, like new driving effects, clothes, and character poses.
On top of all that, alongside this update, a Keys to the Map DLC will be made available. For $5, it will pinpoint the locations of all the collectibles, including bears, street art, and billboards.
Volume 2 will be going live, as a free update, on 21st March. Will you be hopping back into NFS Unbound to try this fresh update? Spin your wheels in the comments section below.

Braw, been waiting to get stuck into this game again.
Got to hand it to them that is a brilliant trailer.
Any new trophies guys n gals?
I got annoyed with story mode on this one. Got past the first qualifier and then it looked like i was gonna be stuck in the bottom half of races again. Will go back but it was just getting alittle annoying lol
@Danloaded I found, like every other nfs since that terrible 2017 reboot, the driving physics feel off somehow.
I liked it, only downside was the characters,now if they release a snap patch to get rid of them ill be happy.
Hmm it’s nice that they will release something but it seems not very machine exciting to be honest.
This game is constantly on sale for 50% off on every platform, I think that says a lot about it. I played the trial and it just didn't appeal to me at all. I found the style, story, and characters obnoxious, and the physics as well as the customizing to be lacking. That and they made the game feel way too grindy as well, with some really obnoxious cop mechanics to deal with. I'd be surprised if this game was a hit with many people.
