EA has announced three downloadable packs for Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, the first of which, Armed and Dangerous, will be released on Tuesday and adds two new game modes. What can be expected from these modes? Well, Most Wanted sounds like a lot of fun – the boys in blue have their targets set on a particular racer, and the other racers are tasked with doing their best to stop the police from doing their job. The second mode, Arms Race, has you using your full arsenal of weaponry against each other throughout the entire race.

Next up is Lamborghini Untamed on March 1st, which, as the name suggests, is all about the Italian manufacturer. The pack introduces the Lamborghini Diablo SV, Lamborghini Countach LP5000 QV and Lamborghini Sesto Elemento to the game, but not only this, it’ll also include 10 new events. Nice.

Finally, on March 8th Porsche Unleashed will be available to download. Purchasing this will get you the keys to three new cars – the Porsche 911 Turbo (1982 Edition), Porsche 959 and 911 Speedster. This pack will also add in 10 new events.

The latter two packs allow you to use the new cars as racer or police, while all the packs add in new achievements and trophies and will each be priced at £5.49 on PS3 or 560 Microsoft Points if you’re downloading for your Xbox 360. Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit was one of 2010’s best games, and it’s great to see that Criterion is supporting it with additional and exciting content.
