A premature tweet from EA’s UK Twitter account has unveiled an interesting addition coming soon to NFS 2015’s roster – a hot rod!

The tweet was quickly removed but enough eager fans picked it up spurring a reply from Ghost Games’ very own Ben Walke. In the series of comments posted on the Need for Speed sub-reddit, Ben admits that the information wasn’t supposed to go out quite yet whilst confirming that a new update is coming and the hot rod isn’t the only piece of content that will be included. Ben did not comment further regarding when we would find out the information or what type of other content will be included, but its exciting to see how NFS looks to go outside the box with future updates for the game. So watch this space!
