Need for Speed is due for a patch very soon that brings a few fan-requested features, as well as a raft of fixes and quality of life changes.

Need for Speed developer Ghost Games has laid out all the details about the game’s upcoming patch. It’s called Showcase and it’s coming February 3.

The main new features are the addition of a photo mode, called Snapshot Pro, and the ability to share wraps with others or download them yourself. Over 100 new customisation items are also being added to 11 of the game’s cars.

A new competitive multiplayer option has been added, to make things easier for players looking to race competitively against one another. License plates have received some tweaks, too, increasing the range of customisation options available.

Finally, all gas stations will now repair your cars if you drive through them, similar to how they’ve always done in past Need for Speed games.

Also, if you long in to the game this weekend, you can take %15 off the price of cars. Not too shabby.
