Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered Officially Announced, First Trailer Released
After many leaks, we finally have the details of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered. The title has just been announced by Electronic Arts and players can wait for the great premiere of the game aimed at four different platforms.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered was first announced in June. Jeff Grubb confirmed that Electronic Arts is planning to bring the game to, among others, Nintendo Switch. Subsequently, the production was leaked twice (Amazon, the Korean equivalent of PEGI), and today specific details of the game have reappeared.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered will debut on November 6 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, and on November 13 it will launch on Nintendo Switch. Electronic Arts confirmed that the title will receive improved visuals and asynchronous cross-play competition. The struggle between platforms will take place thanks to the Autolog function.
As announced, the game will receive all the main DLCs and will provide an additional six hours of gameplay and over 30 challenges.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered (Graphic: Business Wire) “Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit was ahead of its time when it released in 2010 as we built an automatic comparison and friend recommendation system in the game before that type of thing became a norm in today’s world. Now, we’re delighted to be bringing that spirit of timeless racing competition back to new platforms and players where they can connect, compare and compete no matter what platform they’re on, even on the go this time with the Nintendo Switch,” said Matt Webster, the VP of Criterion Games. “Fueled by Autolog and some of the world’s most desirable and classic supercars, this will create the most heart-pumping socially competitive racing experience.”
What else can we count on? EA confirms that in the new version the world of Seacrest County has been improved graphically, the single-player mode has been expanded (improved police cars with tactical weapons can stop suspects, and elite drivers can respond with counterattacks and defensive maneuvers). In Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered we will get the opportunity to learn the entire story alone or with friends, and in the title itself we will find many awards, unlocking cars, weapons, and equipment.
“The game will also include all the additional post-launch content, like fan-favorite modes Armed and Dangerous and Lamborghini Untamed, seamlessly woven into the experience like never before. Brand new achievements, car colors, reduced hard stops, an updated photo mode and multiple quality of life updates make this the best time to reignite the pursuit on either side of the law. After launch, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered will also see the addition of car wraps, which will give players even more customization options,” can be read in its press release.
