The free-to-play, mobile Need for Speed is about to race the devil.
Win “iconic cars” in the Devil’s Run
You technically won’t be actually racing old scratch here. Nonetheless though, this new series of updates for Need for Speed are kind of wicked. A total of three limited time events make up the new content. And these aren’t just races either, as all three will lead to some fast rides.
The first event kicks off in just two days time (August 12th). The prize? A Diablo SV for your in-game-garage (there’s that devil theme). After that, you’ll be able to nab a Jaguar F-Type with a second update on the 23rd. The final one hits on the 6th of September. What do you get for your trouble? A nifty virtual Ford GT in your in-game stable.
All said, it’s a pretty cool little series of time-limited races. Time-limited, by the way, means you won’t have long to finish these. You’ll have to download and beat ’em in short order. Well, you will if you want to fill out the game’s garage anyway.
Don’t have a copy of Need for Speed No Limits? It’s as free as these updates and can be downloaded on iOS or Android devices right now.
Here’s the lowdown, and full details, straight from EA:
From August 12th through the 16th, players can race a Diablo SV through the streets of Blackridge in Devils Run, a major underground road rally. Everyone who works their way from 100th to 1st place will win a Diablo SV of their very own, alongside a huge cash prize**. But it won’t be easy, with big rewards on the line, players will square off against the best racers, and an army of police, who are on full alert.
With the famed and unsanctioned automobile event already on their radar, Blackridge P.D. have already called in extra units and new technology from the state department to help try and shut down the event. Now police can use an Electro Static Field to bring you and other Devil’s Run racers down.
Additional new features in the update also include a new ‘Race Skips’ function, allowing players to instantly complete a replay event while still receiving the 3-Card Monte sequence; as well as a new ‘Missions’ feature, which rewards players for reaching milestone achievements.
But the race doesn’t end there, as there are two more limited time series launching later this Season. From Aug 23rd through the 28th, complete all events in the Jaguar F-TYPE R Coupe Fastlane Series to win a Jaguar F-Type**; and from September 6th through the 11th, complete all events in the Ford GT Fastlane Series to win a Ford GT*.
