Cops and Robbers

Criterion Games have released a few pictures of the future DLC which they are calling "Cops and Robbers Pack".

Criterion Games say this will bring the thrills and spills of cops and robbers car chases to Paradise City.

There are no further details of how the gameplay will work, and this will probably be the last DLC to be released, so don't expect to see it anytime soon. Here are the pictures:
