Need For Speed: Most Wanted's first DLC will launch on Tuesday, December 18, EA has announced.

The 'Ultimate Speed Pack' includes 25 new events built around five new cars: the Pagani Zonda R, McLaren F1LM, Lamborghini Aventador J and Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, and a new Most Wanted rival - the Hennessey Venom GT Spyder.

The pack will also expand on the game's multiplayer, with 70 new "speed-themed" milestones.

The DLC will be available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace, PlayStation Store and PC via Origin, where it will cost 800 Microsoft Points and £7.99 respectively.

There's no word on whether the PlayStation Vita version will also receive the same content.

Need For Speed: Most Wanted launched early last month, and though we were left slightly underwhelmed by Criterion's latest racer, it impressed us enough to make it to our Game Of The Year Shortlist.
