Need for Speed Unbound arrived on Xbox Game Pass earlier this summer thanks to EA Play, and the dev team is still bringing content to the game via its 'Volume' updates - the latest of which adds a couple of cars and some other bits and pieces.

The two new cars in question are the 'Custom Porsche 911 Carrera S' and the 'Porsche Taycan Turbo S' - both attainable through in-game tasks. To get the 911 you'll need to reach Speed Pass rank 50, and to get the Taycan Turbo you'll need to complete the 'Porsche Unleashed' race playlist three times.

Elsewhere in this update, developer Criterion has added new events, linkup areas and customisation packs, alongside introducing some extra paid DLC packs for those who want to expand their Need for Speed Unbound experience.

We only got around to playing a short amount of Unbound close to launch, but we enjoyed what we played, especially now that the series has finally moved to smooth 60FPS performance on Xbox Series X and S.

You can check out some of the highlights of the NFS Unbound Volume 4 update down below:

  • Celebrate 75 Years of Porsche: Need for Speed Unbound Volume 4 celebrates 75 years of Porsche with exciting, new themed events, cosmetics and customizations. Players can head to the Kennedy Test Track to tear it up in a unique Porsche 75th anniversary Playlist and smash stunt-based challenges in Linkups. Plus, finish the Porsche Playlist three times to earn a full electric Porsche Taycan Turbo S (2022).
  • Gauntlet Playlists: In new Gauntlet Playlists, players will need to flex their best skills to outrace the most determined cops in Lakeshore. Get busted by the cops and players will lose their shot at rewards, but if they can smash the field and make it to the end of the route they’ll earn big Bank and XP prizes.
  • New FREE Speed Pass: Volume 4 features a refreshed 75-level Speed Pass, offering free items for players to stir up the streets. Race through Speed Pass rank 50 to earn the wildest Legendary Custom Porsche 911 Carrera S (1997) that Lakeshore has seen.
  • Even More Ways to Play: Players can now access “Boosted” events in Lakeshore Online. Playlists and Linkups will unexpectedly, and for a limited time, become Boosted, giving players additional rewards when competing. Players can also experience 7 new Linkup locations, including the Kennedy Test Track and Griffith Construction; and are now able to quick-route to Linkups. Volume 4 also introduces a whole new set of 20 Daily Challenges, plus 15 new One Shot Challenges, as well as a refreshed set of 39 Weekly Challenges, to earn XP and Bank.
  • In-Game Store: Head to the in-game store to purchase 3 new premium customization and cosmetics content packs*, which include new cars, cosmetics, driving effects and more. Plus, EA Play members can check their garage to find the electric neon 25th Anniversary Legendary Custom Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 (2021) waiting as a reward.
  • Need for Speed™ Heat Gift: Players who own Need for Speed™ Heat and purchase Need for Speed™ Unbound will receive an exclusive welcome gift, the McLaren F1 (1994) will be ready and waiting for them in their Garage when they arrive.
