Volume 4 of Need for Speed Unbound celebrates the 75th Anniversary of Porsche with new events and more on August 16th

From Press Release:

Racers: get ready to feel the rush with new Playlists, Challenges, rides and more in Need for Speed™ Unbound Volume 4.

Launching August 16, Volume 4 celebrates 75 years of Porsche with exciting new themed events, cosmetics and customizations, offering players the opportunity to earn the wildest legendary custom Porsche the streets have ever seen, a fully electric Porsche Taycan Turbo S (2022).

Volume 4 also ramps up both the intensity and rewards as players join the chase and push themselves to their limits in new Linkups, “Boosted” events and Daily and Weekly Challenges for the chance to earn XP and sweet new rides. The latest drop in NFS Unbound’s series of post-launch updates introduces Speed Pass, bringing 75 ranks of new free cosmetics and customizations. The Legendary Custom Porsche 911 Carrera S (1997) is up for grabs for those that make it past rank 50.

New Gauntlet playlists will allow players to feel the ultimate thrill of street racing as the cops join the chase. Outracing and outsmarting the most determined cops in Lakeshore will earn them big rewards – but if they get caught, they’ll go home empty-handed. Players can also find new premium content in the store, including the Hip Hop Origin Swag Pack*, which is the ultimate celebration of street style and honors the roots of hip hop with the Legendary Custom Mercedes-AMG G 63 (2017) and more.

From August 24 to August 27, Xbox players worldwide with a Live Gold membership or a Game Pass Ultimate subscription can join the chase and play NFS Unbound for free** as part of Xbox Free Play Days.
