After twelve long years since Criterion Games released the third instalment of its critically acclaimed racing experience for the PlayStation in 1998, Need For Speed is back to reclaim its place atop the video game racing mountain in 2020. Spawning a plethora of sequels and spinoffs, this incredible franchise has delighted video gamers of all kinds – whether you enjoy the street racing Underground series or their more dramatic and realistic vehicular racing simulation with The Run and Shift, respectively. Whatever your wheelhouse is, this incredibly vibrant and established franchise is back bigger and better than ever.

Taking inspiration from the recently remastered Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, it appears we may be riding a wave of nostalgia as we leave 2020 behind for a new (hopefully better) year. EA joins the race with their remastered version of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, arriving November 6 for PS4, Xbox and PC. Sorry, Switch players; you’ll have to wait till November 13 for your version.

Clearly the reason for offering up Need for Speed: Payback for Playstation Plus subscribers, you can now await the thrill of both the chase and the rush of the escape as you floor it as either the cops or the high-performance driver trying not to get run off the road as the police narrow in on their Hot Pursuit (nailed it). With tactical weapons set to be included for the boys in blue, you better be cautious while pulling off those elusive manoeuvers.

Returning back to the winding, open roads of Seacrest County, EA delivers the same renowned feel for the breakneck speed and gameplay that the Criterion collection was known for – plus its innovative Autolog system for empowering real social competition amongst friends. It’s time to come back and unleash a savage sense of speed either as an outlaw or a cop in this fully remastered and updated timeless racing experience, . What does that mean exactly? 4K gaming for most, and 1080p at 30 frames per second on Switch when docked. Though, no word on whether we’ll be seeing it appear on the PS5 or Xbox Series X.

What we do know for sure is the epic list of high-performance vehicles that you can get behind the wheel of. We’ll drop the list at the bottom for you to peruse. Reaching nearly 100 cars, there’s a lot to play with already. And that’s before mentioning all the added DLC on offer for the launch, with EA announcing the SCPD Rebel Racer Pack, Super Sports Pack, Armed & Dangerous Pack, Lamborghini Untamed Pack, and Porsche Unleashed Pack, just to name a few.

Included in the list are even some custom Need For Speed editions for everyone’s favourite ridiculous supercar, the Pagani Zonda, in addition to a Ford Police Interceptor Concept car for the coppers.

Ready to drive in the comprehensively deep and franchise-defining single-player career that tests drivers on both sides of the law, all the while linking players across all race modes.
