Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered has just been announced by developer Stellar Entertainment Limited and Publisher Electronic Arts, and will be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 6, and November 13 for the Nintendo Switch.

The game will have remastered visuals and cross-platform asynchronous multiplayer powered by Autolog, which is a feature that will allow players to seamlessly connect and compete with their friends. The game will also include the DLC from the original title (which adds an additional six hours of gameplay) and will add more than 30 challenges for players to complete.

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, 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.”

Like the original, there will be a single-player career mode where players can play on both sides of the law. You can be a cop using tactical weaponry to get their man, or a racer where you can even the playing field with defensive maneuvers and counterattacks. 

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered will be released on November 6 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, while the Nintendo Switch gets a November 13 release date. For more information, be sure to check out the official website.
