Hands-on preview

We've been hands-on with the latest Need for Speed Unbound update. Was Vol.4 worth the wait or is it another underwhelming update? Find out in our hands-on preview of Need for Speed Unbound Vol. 4.

Celebrating 75 years of Porsche

Need for Speed Unbound Vol. 4 celebrates the 75th anniversary of Porsche.

In the trailer, we see a grid full of Porsches racing around Lakeshore City. Despite the update celebrating the history of Porsche, only two Porsches are being added to the game.

Reaching Speed Pass rank 50 unlocks the Legendary Custom Porsche 911 Carrera S (1997). Completing the Porsche playlist three times rewards players with the electric Porsche Taycan Turbo S (2022).
