EA has announced a trio of pre-order bonuses for Need For Speed: Most Wanted, available when you pre-order the game from selected retailers.

Each of the three bonuses contain an exclusive livery and two car modifications, and will be exclusive to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions.

It isn't yet known which retailers will carry each pack.

  • Speed Pack: The Caterham Superlight R500 in the exclusive Satin Black livery, featuring the Track Tyres Modification for improved road handling, and the Lightweight Chassis Modification allowing players to reach mesmerizing speeds.
  • Strike Pack: The Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series in the exclusive Satin Black livery, featuring the Power Pack Powertrain Modification for an engine tuned for torque, acceleration and the ability to reach breakneck speeds, and the Re-inflating Tyres Modification making it easier to survive and counter rivals' attempts to slow players down.
  • Power Pack: The Ford F-150 SVT Raptor in the exclusive Satin Black livery, featuring the Reinforced Chassis Modification for taking increased damage, and the powerful and violent Nitrous Dump Modification for making tight jumps and powered up takedowns.

In addition to the retailer-specific bonuses, anyone who pre-orders the game will also receive the Limited Edition, containing four hours of double speed points and access to two exclusive cars.

A selection of new screenshots were also released to coincide with the news.

"In Need for Speed Most Wanted, everything players do earn them Speed Points which are used to compete to be the Most Wanted amongst their friends" said Matt Webster, executive producer at Criterion Games.

"Fans with the Limited Edition or pre-order packs will have additional cars to choose from on day one - cars that fit how they like to compete in multiplayer, whether it's going for the highest top speed, farthest jump, or the fastest race time."

Need For Speed: Most Wanted launches on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and PlayStation Vita on November 2.
