While we wait for EA to reveal Need for Speed Unbound’s post-launch plans, a new update has arrived for the mobile spin-off Need for Speed: No Limits. And it includes a highly-requested gameplay feature we need to see in Unbound.
A$AP Rocky’s Mercedes 190E arrives in Need for Speed No Limits
Headlining the Need for Speed No Limits Takeover update is A$AP Rocky’s custom Mercedes 190E 2.5-16 Evolution II following its appearance in Unbound as the cover car.
Like the real car it’s based on, A$AP Rocky heavily modified his Mercedes 190E with gold badges and a contrasting two-tone paint job. The left of the car is all-black, while the right side is painted white.
A new Takeover event sees you upgrading the rapper’s Mercedes 190E from scrap and installing the custom body kit. His hit song Palace also features in the update.
You can earn the rap star’s Mercedes in the seven-day Alpha B.R.A.V.O. Special Event between 23 January and 6 February.
Joining the Mercedes 190E in the Takeover update is the 2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT and 2021 Pagani Huayra R. The Cayenne Turbo GT can also be won in the Alpha B.R.A.V.O. Special Event, while the Huayra R can be earned in the XRC: Pagani Huayra R event running from 4-20 February.
Play as the cops in new Interceptor mode
In addition, the Takeover update also adds a new highly requested gameplay feature that Unbound lacks: playable cops.
In the new Interceptor mode, players can join Blackridge Police busting racers in a Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT as part of a special task force.
Cop chases are still not in Unbound’s online multiplayer. You can’t play as cops in the single-player campaign either. Let’s hope this update paves the way for Unbound to get playable cops in a Hot Pursuit-style mode.
