Need for Speed is an interesting video game franchise that's experimented with practically every kind of racing game at some point in the past. One of the more highly rated Need for Speeds was Hot Pursuit, released by Criterion Games in 2010, for its solid visuals and addictive gameplay, despite doing away with a lot of the customization Need for Speed was known for. Now, a decade later, Criterion Games is bringing Hot Pursuit back in a big way with a full remaster, as announced by EA earlier today.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered will allow players to revisit the game with all-new enhanced visuals, like higher resolution textures and models, better reflections and shadows, a revamped UI, and more. On Xbox One X and PS4 Pro, expect 4K at 30 fps, while base current-gen consoles will run at 1080p and 30 fps (or 720p / 30 fps in handheld mode on the Switch). The game looks suitably impressive in screenshots and its reveal trailer, and it'll be exciting to see just how good it looks when we can get it into our hands.
The remastered game will also include all of the main DLC from the original, including loads of car packs, extended gameplay, and more than 30 new challenges. Possibly the greatest draw of this game, however, is the fact that full cross-play will be supported here across platforms, so players won't be restricted to friends and family with the same console as them.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered arrives on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on November 6, 2020, with Nintendo Switch coming a week later on November 13, 2020.
