NFS: Hot Pursuit – Gamers Receive Free Convertibles DLC

By Posted 15 Dec 2010, 10:59

Some of you may remember the Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit challenge that was set by the team behind the popular arcade racer a while back, in which gamers would be rewarded with free DLC if a certain NFS: Hot Pursuit trailer was viewed for a total of 1 million times.

Well according to Mike Hartnett over at playstationlifestyle.com, although gamers came pretty close to achieving the challenge, they didn’t quite make it. However, the developer Criterion Games then decided to reward gamers with the free DLC anyway.

A brief message – from everyone at Criterion Games, Electronic Arts and Need for Speed – was posted on the hotpursuit.needforspeed.com website recently, noting that although the launch trailer (viewed via YouTube) didn’t quite make it to 1 million views, they wanted to thank fans anyway.

The free DLC pack – which is in fact available to download now on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 – gives players three new convertibles: the Lamborghini Mercielago LP 650-4 Roadster, the Dodge Viper SRT10 Convertible Final Edition and the Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible.

I’m not exactly sure whether or not PC gamers will be receiving the free Convertibles DLC pack, what with the recent confirmation from both Criterion Games and Electronic Arts that the PC version would not be included in any future DLC plans (see previous article here).
