Electronic Arts announced that Need For Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered will launch for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 6, and to Nintendo Switch on November 13. The remastered version will be developed by Criterion Games. The original Need for Speed Hot Pursuit was released on November 16, 2010 (NA version) for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Need for Speed Hot Pursuit was Criterion’s first game in the Need for Speed series. They also developed Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012) and Need for Speed: Heat (2019).

Features from the official site:

Race Your Friends with Cross-Platform Multiplayer and Autolog

Bolt down Seacrest County headfirst behind the wheels of the world’s hottest high-performance cars, in racing that is socially competitive at its core. Connect with your friends in cross-platform, head-to-head pursuits and races, or get challenges delivered based on their activity for asynchronous competition through the highly dynamic Autolog system. Autolog is also supported with cross-platform sync, so you can make a mark on your friends’ Speedwalls no matter if they’re playing on PS4, Xbox One, PC, or Nintendo Switch.

Enjoy Loads of Extra Content and Updates

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered includes all main DLC – the SCPD Rebel Racer Pack, Super Sports Pack, Armed & Dangerous Pack, Lamborghini Untamed Pack, and Porsche Unleashed Pack – delivered at launch, with an extra six hours of gameplay and more than 30 challenges. We’ve added brand new achievements, car colors, wraps, reduced hard stops, an updated photo mode and gallery, and multiple quality of life updates, too, to create an even more well-rounded gameplay experience this time around.

Chase and Escape with Weaponized Supercars

It wouldn’t be a Hot Pursuit without pushing the world’s most desirable supercars to their limits – on both sides of the law. Bust suspects in supercharged cop interceptors enhanced with tactical weaponry, or level the playing field with counterattacks and defensive maneuvers as an elite racer. Strategize to gain an edge over the competition, no matter what side you’re on! A deep and fully-defined single-player career delivers the action of both sides, with a seamlessly linked multiplayer experience across all race modes. Take on friends or play through the career solo to earn Bounty and unlock new cars, weapons, and equipment.

Experience a Timeless Racing Game with Enhanced Visuals

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered has been upgraded for today’s generation of hardware with enhanced visuals. The Nintendo Switch version runs at 1080p/30 FPS in docked mode (720p/30 FPS undocked) and includes higher-resolution models, more objects and props, longer draw distance, higher resolution shadows, and improved videos.

Depending on your specifications, 4K/60 FPS is supported on PC, and players can choose between 4K/30 FPS or 1080p/60 FPS on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. Base versions of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will run the game at 1080p/30 FPS. In addition to the listed improvements for the Nintendo Switch version, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions are also updated with upressed UI, higher resolution reflections, boosted textures, more particles, and improved AA/SSAO.
