Free SHIFT 2 Unleashed DLC for PC This Week

The Need for Speed Blog has word that the Legends and Speedhunters DLC packs are not only headed to the Windows edition of SHIFT 2 Unleashed as previously announced, but that they will be offered free of charge, a drastic change from initial indications they would not be coming to the PC edition of the racing sequel at all. The DLC will be released through Origin.com on Thursday. Here's word:

Beginning June 30th, the DLC packs will be available to download, for free, from Origin.com. In case you missed it: the Legends Pack features a dozen cars and 5 new tracks from racing's golden age, and the Speedhunters Pack added two new game modes - Drag and Standing Mile - as well as 14 new vehicles to try against your friends for epic Autolog battles.

Yep, you'd rather they charge for content.

Yes, I'm sure EA will continue to give away candy and balloons every day, with rainbows and flying unicorns delivering the DLC.

Good move.

You realize the only reason they did this was to drive people to Origin, right?

This. And I hope it doesn't work.
Yep, you'd rather they charge for content. Clearly you don't play SHIFT 2.

Seems like they learned the giving away free stuff trick from Valve. That's the sort of competition I can get behind.

Why do you hope it *doesn't* work? Isn't focusing on the PC, even if it is through their stilted download service, better than nothing at all?

Don't forget in 99% of cases you can register Steam versions of EA games with EADM/Origin by inputting the supplied 'Project $10' key into EA's system, download the DLC and install it to the Steam version.

Dirt 3 is a goooood game.
Especially with two g25s, two tvs, two ps3s, set up with two separate pods, networked on a private lan. Yessir, beer budget s(t)imulation at its best.
Speaking of beer, here's to you EA. Nobody can arbitrarily divide those hairs quite like you, and now, you've given all of gamer-dom this.
Yeesh.

Shift has a long way to go if they want to compete with Forza and GT. Shift is not enough of an enthusiast or collectors game and is too hyper race oriented.

Good move. SHIFT 2 is definitely at its best on PC, and I think it's a solid competitor to the ones with bigger production values on consoles, like Forza and Gran Turismo. Not as sim-oriented as the classics or stuff like iRacing, but it requires just a bit less of a commitment or a nose for the very technical aspects of driving.
