Developer Criterion Games, in collaboration with Burnout Paradise Remastered co-developer Stellar Entertainment, announced that Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit will be remastered for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered drops this November.
More specifically, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered launches on November 6 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One and November 13 for Nintendo Switch. Criterion shared a reveal trailer alongside the announcement and some gameplay, which you can see below. You can also check out our Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered preview for more details.
Among the many improvements made to the game, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered comes packaged with newly enhanced visuals, all the main DLC that adds six more hours of gameplay and over 30 challenges, and cross-play multiplayer support powered by Hot Pursuit’s social networking technology Autolog. Through Autolog, players can compete against each other in asynchronous multiplayer, as well as share their experiences, pictures, challenge competition lists, and stats with other players across the world on any current-generation platform.
There currently doesn’t seem to be any plans by Criterion to bring Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered to PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series S/Series X, although it should be playable on those consoles via backwards compatibility.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered is an enhanced, overhauled version of the 2010 game of the same name by Criterion. It is not a remaster of 1998’s Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit.
We gave the original 2010 game an 8.5/10 in our Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit review, saying, “Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is one of the most thrilling racing games around.”
