SHIFT 2 Unleashed: Speedhunters DLC

SHIFT 2 Unleashed: Speedhunters DLC

Here is the second DLC for SHIFT 2 Unleashed: Speedhunters. It will be available on May 17 on Xbox LIVE Marketplace and on the PlayStation Network. Look below for all the details.


Beginning on May 17, racing fans from around the world will dial up the intensity of the driver’s battle with the all-new SHIFT 2 UNLEASHED™ “Speedhunters” content pack. The digital expansion offers players a whole new career path with new game modes, cars and tracks inspired by the expansive network of automotive photographers, journalists and drivers at With 1.7 million visits and nearly 6 million page views per month, Speedhunters, which is owned by EA, is recognized by automotive enthusiasts as one of the world’s leading car culture sites.

The SHIFT 2 UNLEASHED Speedhunters content pack contains two new branches including Drag and Standing mile. Each branch features nine new events, where players will only be able to use the manual gear change so that they can really feel what it’s like to be in the driver’s seat. This means the traction control features will be forced off and the HUD will display a new rev counter and gear indicator. The difference between the two modes is simple – Drag judges the fastest time over a quarter mile stretch, and Standing Mile judges the fastest speed achieved over a mile stretch. Both branches allows for new high-power customization options where players can create 1000 horsepower engines capable of reaching speeds of over 250 mph.

To top it off, the Speedhunters content pack features two new cars – Chris Rado’s World Racing Pro-FWD Reaper Scion tC and Koz’s Dodge Viper GTS by Twins Turbo as well as 12 specially tuned Speedhunters vehicles available to compete in all disciplines.

This game looks so good and the DLC these days coming 50 days before release just make you wonder they could have waited and added these in one game. But everyone are doing this these days.

Game looks good but probably I will not buy this. I have to buy motorstorm and other games on the list too before this and more new games are coming as well lol
