EA's excellent Need For Speed Unbound is officially coming to Xbox Game Pass in just two days' time on June 22nd, and its arrival coincides with a massive free update that's gone live today - as well as some new paid DLC packs!

The update is called Need For Speed Unbound Volume 3, and it adds a new Speed Pass progression system with free rewards, a massive array of new challenges, and brand-new Linkups which will allow you to unlock the DMC Delorean!

"In Need for Speed Unbound Volume 3, players will come together to crush new challenges and earn XP for rewards. This update introduces Speed Pass, a new way to get rewarded for completing challenges and events across Lakeshore to earn big rewards, like the new Legendary Custom SRT Viper.

Players will also take part in intense stunt-based driving challenges against the clock in new Linkups, allowing them to earn XP for Speed Pass and Bank to earn new cosmetics and customizations. Additionally, Volume 3 brings new events, Daily and Weekly Challenges, Chat Wheel, and much more."

In terms of the paid DLC, there's a new Robojets Swag Pack for $14.99, Ford Mustang GT Legendary Custom Pack for $9.99 and Volume 3 Customs Pack for $5.99 - all available via the in-game store.

It's a great time for Need For Speed Unbound to be arriving on Xbox Game Pass, then, and even before these recent updates, we thought it was one of the best NFS titles of the past decade when we shared our impressions at launch:
