Ghost Games has detailed what's new in the upcoming Need for Speed patch, "Icons."

Community lead Ben Walke stated in a blog post the developer was aware of issues with AI catch-up (AI cars that magically keep up with you when racing) and while the details haven't been specified, it has "made changes to the AI behavior which should improve your overall experience."

Two new Icon cars will be available - Morohoshi's Lamborghini Diablo SV and Ken Block's Hoonicorn - complete with an enhanced colour selection tool, new daily challenges, a rep boost and three new cheevos/trophies, depending upon your console of choice.

The main menu is also being refreshed to better indicate when the new community events are live. There will be three types of events - bonus cash events will grant an increase in money, discounts events will offer discounts on various in-game items, and bonus REP events will reward you with more REP.

The rollout begins November 25, 2015.

In our Need for Speed review, we said that: "When you factor in Need for Speed's forgettable story, you're left with a slightly above average racing game that's not as enjoyable as past series entries.

"From a pure gameplay perspective, it works, but it never manages to elevate itself. If you're in the mood for a new cinematic racer though, you could do a whole lot worse."
