EA and Criterion Games have launched Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered for the fans who were waiting to get it since the original 2010 version.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is now available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Nintendo Switch users will get access to the game just a few days later, on November 13, 2020.
Cross-platform multiplayer competition will be available for everyone, for the first time in the game so all those platforms will be able to enjoy playing with friends, even if they didn't stick to the same brand.
Besides that, the enhanced visuals that usually accompany remasters will be included in this release as well along with all the DLC that was available for the game that was released in 2010.
This instalment of Need for Speed will bring action from both sides - the racers and law enforcement. Cops will have access to tactical weaponry to bring the law-breaking street racers to heel while the other side will have access to some of the fastest cars of the modern age to both win the races and escape the heat.
Some of the highlights include the fan-favourite modes like Armed and Dangerous and Lamborghini Untamed which will apparently be "seamlessly woven into the gameplay".
PC versions of the game will set the fans back $29.99 while the console users will need to pay a bit more with the $39.99 price tag for Switch, PS4 and Xbox One.
The launch hasn't been received so well on PC thus far as many are lamenting the loss of controller and wheel support which the original game had.
