With Need for Speed Unbound, the series is back and a ton of people could not be any more excited. Some people felt like things had moved on from the Need for Speed series. However, if we are being honest, there are far more good Need for Speed games than there are bad ones and Unbound here looks like it could be something very special.
Today, we are looking at the different editions as we try to decide what version of Need for Speed Unbound should I buy.
When Is It Out & What Is It On?
Need for Speed Unbound will be released on December 2nd for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC. There is NO PS4, Xbox One, or Nintendo Switch version of the game.
If you pre-order Need for Speed Unbound before the December 2nd release date you can get the following items.

$150,00 to use in the multiplayer

Need for Speed Unbound Creative Subversion Kit
The big Need for Speed Unbound Collectors Edition is called the Creative Subversion Kit and this comes with a bunch of awesome physical items which is so cool. This is only available for the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series, there is no PC version. Included are,
A Special Collectors Edition Box
A Steelbook Case
Need For Speed Unbound Ski Mask!
3 Colored Need For Speed Unbound Branded Markers
5 Vinyl Stickers (Suitable for your car)
24 Hello Stickers (Suitable for your laptop, fridge, or whatever)
Need for Speed Unbound No Video Game Included Version
Yes, you are not seeing things here! You know the Need for Speed Unbound Creative Subversion Kit we just talked about? Well, Amazon has a version of this listed that comes with all the physical items, except it does not actually come with the game. Now at first glance, this seems like the dumbest idea ever. However, if you get the PC version of the game, you could then buy this and get all of the goodies that the PS5 and Xbox Series players are getting too.
EA Play vs EA Play Pro
There is one more thing we need to talk about regarding playing Need for Speed Unbound and that is if you are an EA Play or EA Play Pro subscriber. If you are a standard EA Play member, you can play the game earlier on November 29th. You also get in game member awards as well as a 10 percent discount on DLC. Now, if you are an EA Play Pro member, you get those same benefits, but it is the Need for Speed Palace version of the game you get access to, so you get that extra content.
Which Version Of Need for Speed Unbound Should I Buy?
If you are a die-hard Need for Speed fanatic, you may want to go for the Need for Speed Unbound Creative Subversion Kit. It is awesome how it comes with a bunch of cool physical items that would be great to add to your collection. For those that just want to “play” the game and are not bothered about any of the extras, the standard edition of the game should be fine for you.
