Yesterday, we went over rewards for people who own past Need for Speed titles. Today, we're going to talk about Online Pass and the Limited Edition of SHIFT 2 Unleashed and how they combine to ratchet up the bonuses even further in the fastest racing game on the planet.
When you start your career in SHIFT 2 Unleashed, you'll have $20,000 to spend on your first car. When you pre-order the Limited Edition, though, you'll have a head-start with three extra cars (Nissan Silvia spec.R Aero (S15), Alfa Romeo Giulietta QV, Lamborghini Murciélago LP640), and when you activate Online Pass, you'll get an additional $10,000 for tuning. That's a starting package of $30,000 in-game cash as well as double XP for the first 24 hours you own the game, just for pre-ordering. That's plenty of dough for customization.
Not to mention the 37 additional events you'll have access to, which include Old vs. New matchups (where you'll see the classic version of a car face off against its current iteration), Manufacturer Battles (which pit the fastest carmakers in their fastest cars against each other), and Single Manufacturer races (where you'll take control of a car with no upgrades and face-off against the same to determine who truly is the best racer).
Are you ready to get your hands on the Limited Edition of SHIFT 2 Unleashed and dominate from day one?
