Need for Speed Unbound developer Criterion Games has unveiled a new January update featuring several improvements to the latest instalment of the arcade racing franchise.
The January update or Update 1.1.4 is headlined by the balancing of two cars in the Golf GTI 1976 and the Koenigsegg Regera. While the latter sees a reduction in the top-end acceleration and changes to its cornering ability, the iconic Volkswagen model sees a decrease in acceleration in high gears. Furthermore, the developers have also fixed an issue where various gearbox options didn’t affect the car’s top speed as expected.
