Need for Speed: Most Wanted pre-order bonuses detailed

EA has detailed the pre-order bonuses for Need for Speed: Most Wanted, including early unlocks of cars, and various packs that accent different aspects of the racing title.


Like any big-budget fall release, Need for Speed: Most Wanted is getting its own set of pre-order goodies. But what to offer in this car game about cars racing against other cars? If you answered "cars," you're a clever one.

Pre-orders will get the "Limited Edition" version of the game, similar to other recent EA releases. This lets you unlock two specially-modified multiplayer cars early: the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale and Porsche 911 Carrera S. You'll also get double speed points for the first four hours of multiplayer.

Select retailers will also be able to unlock one of three packs. The Speed Pack unlocks the Caterham Superlight R500, and modifications for improved handling and speed. The Strike Pack features the Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series, with modifications for improved toque and crash handling. Finally, the Power Pack includes the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor with mods for increased durability, and a nitrous dump for powerful smashes. All of them come with a Satin Black livery.

      I really hope this game will be rad and go back to its roots from the first Most Wanted game which is my favorite when I first played it on the 360.

        This game will go back to the roots of Burnout

          Yeah. I thought it was going to be a Most Wanted game when it was announced, but every thing I see is geared toward a Burnout game. Which is strange to me because when asked they said there would still be Burnout games in the future.

          I'm over preorders. The digital goodies aren't worth anything once you're done playing the game. I also don't feel compelled to part with my money now to get something later. Especially when I'll still be able to get that thing later anyway.

          My big hope for this game is that Criterion doesn't leave the PC version out in the cold like they did with Paradise. Some of the DLC cars, and Big Surf Island where never made available for the PC.

        Uh, it doesn't even have slow motion. This will have nothing to do with the original most wanted.

      Why do they keep making NFS games with the exact same name as previous NFS games?

          No it's not. There is already a Need for Speed: Most Wanted for PC and 360 out already. So this game and the last one are both called Need for Speed: Most Wanted. There's not even a number two to distinguish between them.

          This is a reboot on NFSMW. At least COD actually gives the impression of a new game in the "series"

            The first Hot Pursuit was called NFS 3: Hot Pursuit. The second game was called NFS: Hot Pursuit 2

              Forgot to mention the 3rd game. That one was NFS: Hot Pursuit. No 3 on the NFS like the first game.
