However I’m sure there are plenty of you out there that hold the Need For Speed series in the highest regard, and for good reason.

So if you’ve been currently playing or thinking of playing Need For Speed Unbound, you won’t want to miss a brand-new free update for the game that’s available right now.

For those who haven’t played it yet, if you’re on PlayStation platforms you can play it at no additional cost if you’ve got PlayStation Plus.

The recent update is called "Drift & Drag", inspired by Need For Speed Underground, and adds three new modes to the game, Drift, Drag, and League. While the bulk of the update is free-to-play, you can bolster the offering with the Premium Speed Pass, which adds bonus customisation features for your cars.

Drift mode is as it says, it’ll test your drifting skills for points in free roam and also PvP modes.

Drag pits up to four players against each other to test their ability to switch gears, dodge obstacles and use nitrous boosts.

Finally there’s a League mode, which will allow players to challenge each other to battles while roaming the city streets.

It’s not just new modes though, the update will also add two new cars to unlock and cruise around in, the BMW M3 Competition Touring '23 and the Ford Mustang Dark Horse '24.

The update is available now, for free, for all players, and if you’re yet to play the game for yourself you can do so via PlayStation Plus.
