Need for Speed: Heat features various downloadable content packs that each include a varying amount of additional content.

Released content includes pre-order packs, post release packs, bundle packs, and boxed bundles.

A couple of comments made by Ben Walke, the Global Community Engagement Manager at Electronic Arts, noted that Need for Speed: Heat would not feature any loot boxes or "surprise mechanics[1]", and that there would be post-launch car packs released as paid-for downloadable content.

We plan to have post launch paid-DLC in the form of car packs. Later this year we'll introduce a time-save pack, which will show all collectables on the map.

That's it.
