Following this weekend’s tease by EA regarding the Need for Speed franchise, the publisher has just now announced Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered! It’s set to drive out this November 6 on the PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch, and we have a trailer and info here.
Ten years ago, Criterion Games released their critically acclaimed franchise debut Need for Speed Hot Pursuit. It introduced NFS and racing fans to the winding, open roads of Seacrest County, Criterion’s renowned feel for breakneck speed and gameplay, and the innovative Autolog system, empowering true social competition between friends.
Ever since, we’ve heard so many stories about the triumphant moments and heated rivalries Autolog fostered. Some of which run very, very deep. Like the one between Michael and Joseph.
