In its announcement, Criterion explains the addition as “Stay ahead of the chase to make Bank while your friends help knock them off your tail, or take the Heat off you for their rewards.
Volume 2 introduces Daily Challenges, which players can complete up to three (selected from a pool of 40) each day to earn XP and Bank, in addition to multiplayer cop skirmishes that include new banner rewards. For those who succeed in enough challenges, there is also a “special luxury ride”.
In addition, Criterion promises two new Rumble playlists (each containing three new races), four new Endurance events, two new Street Races, and two new Standard Playlists.
The 30-second Hot Lap races will offer a variety of cosmetic rewards and a mysterious new vehicle referred to as the “world’s fastest leather armchair” in addition to the 30 new races.
