Project Gotham Racing 4 gets two DLC packs on Valentine's Day

Bizarre Creation's PGR4 was probably one of the more underrated XBox 360 games released last year. Building on the excellent (although slightly flawed) PGR3, PGR4 gets nearly everything right. Coming soon to XBLM is two downloadable packs, the first of which is free.

DLC pack one contains the Peugeot Flux – a hydrogen-powered car that took out the Peugeot International Design Competition last year – and two new game modes (Tourist Mode and Free Roam Cat & Mouse). Tourist Mode will allow players to cruise the PGR4 cities freely, accumulating kudos wherever is desired, while Cat and Mouse has slower 'mouse' vehicles being persued by faster 'car' vehicles in a game of tag.

400 MS points will net you DLC pack two (the Premium Challenge Pack), which contains seven new cars, 3 new bikes and a World Challenge Arcade Mode, containing 20 new arcade events.
