'Speedhunters' DLC races to SHIFT 2 on May 17

9:00 AM on 05.12.2011 // Nick Chester

[Update: Original story now with more video!]

Our very own Mr. Destructoid has found his way into videogames, but car-tuner website Speedhunters is getting an entire Shift 2 Unleashed car pack named after it!

The "Speedhunters" content pack brings two new branches to the game, including Drag and Standing mile, each with nine events a piece. For all of you automatic transmission wimps out there, know this: you'll only be able to use manual in these brand new events. Electronic Arts says that the game's traction control features will be turned off, and the HUD will display a brand new rev counter and gear indicator.

A content pack without new cars isn't a content pack at all, so you'll also get Chris Rado's World Racing Pro-FWD Reaper Scion tC and Koz's Dodge Viper GTS by Twin Turbo. That's in addition to the 12 Speedhunters-tuned vehicles, which range from Nissan's to Mazda's.

The full list of cars and new tracks for the 800 MS Point/$9.99 pack can be found below. It'll be out May 17.

Went snowboarding for the first time in years. Crashed a lot, many times into trees. All that training in FF7 didnt do squat!

If I were to get Age of Empires II HD to play with you all, do you all have the DLC?

I am relieved to know Creed is a Rocky spin-off and not a feature-length documentary about the band.

Been playing Gears of War 3's campaign on Xbox One. Looks great on there, and Sam's voice actor is Chloe's voice actor in Uncharted 2/3. Hell yeah!

Community Question: With all the controversy surrounding review scores, what do you personally consider a "bad" score versus a "good" score? Is there a game in particular that was panned by critics that you nevertheless enjoyed? Or vice versa?

Finally got around to playing Diablo 3 with some friends, holy smokes! That game is rad!

My cousin found out I slept with his girlfriend and is pissed. Understandable. I am totally sick of the angry phone calls though. It reminds me so much of playing Call of Duty online. The screaming 11 year olds suck on there too.

Huh. Apparently even Japan has a Black Friday sale going on on PSN right now.

Yes, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I know that somebody has 2,625 more medallions than me. No, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I don't really care.

This fucking Bloodborne DLC, jesus. I'm on new game+, about level 90, and shit just tears my dick off. I don't know if I want to start another guy just to avoid NG+ and level him up, etc. sigh....

I am pretty hyped for when I get a laptop because I'll be able to have a good enough connection to stream XbOne/soon PS4 games to it along with natively rendered Steam games. Hype!
