As has been the way of things at Electronic Arts these days, the upcoming release of Need for Speed: Shift 2 will be released initially as a Limited Edition title. EA is following the successful formula that they have used recently with a number of titles such as Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 where the initial run of the titles are packaged in a Limited Edition version.
Those who pick up the Limited Edition of Shift 2 release will receive a code that allows the owner to download three cars at no additional charge that are likely to be bundled and sold as a downloadable add-on later on after the game has been out for some time.
The three cars to be included are said to be the Nissan Siliva Spec-R Aero, Lamborghini Murcielago LP640, and the Alfa Romeo Giulietta QV. These bonus cars that will be included in the Limited Edition version should give players a leg up on competitors.
It is unclear as of yet how long these cars will be exclusive to buyers, but free is free; and for those who are planning to purchase Shift 2 they will want to capitalize on this offering and make sure that they get one of the Limited Edition versions of the game when it is released.
