Need For Speed Is In Hot Pursuit Of A New Game

At today's EA press conference, the latest entry in the Need for Speed series, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit was unveiled.

The game is classic cops vs robbers chases and features, what Kotaku's own Michael Fahey calls, "slow-motion crashes like in Burnout". The game features solo play or online play via an all new online network called "Need for Speed Autolog", which logs scores and even provides personalised gameplay recommendations.

"At Criterion, we've been playing Need for Speed since it was first introduced on 3DO. We are honoured and excited by the opportunity to reinvent the franchise for today's connected audience," said the game's Creative Director Craig Sullivan in an official release. "Our goal has been to create cops vs racers pursuits that are so fun, fast and exciting it really brings to life the adrenaline and intensity of the high speed cop pursuit experience with your friends."

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit will be released on November 16 on the PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Nintendo Wii.


    Pretty sure there has already been Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, and Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2.

    If this does not have split-screen then you fail so very much.

    :O So pumped! NFS is going back to before it went all "gangsta" with hip hop and (basically) hookers. Best news ever.

      you said it, shift was a good step forward so that but with cops for the win

    I cannot wait to travel at high velocity in the criterions version of hot pursuit :) Yes a return to the roots, i dug my old copy of HP2 for the pc out the other week, ahh the memories :)
