As with most modern-day video game touch-ups, Stellar has made sure Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered comes with a number of enhancements. EA and Criterion indicate that the remaster will include cross-platform multiplayer and Autolog, enhanced visuals, all the main DLC, and more. New achievements, car colors, wraps, an updated photo mode, and other quality-of-life improvements are in this new version of the game as well.

It’s surreal the original Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit was released by Criterion a decade ago already. The studio developed three titles for the series — Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, and (with Ghost Games) Need for Speed: Rivals — before the franchise was fully handed over to Ghost Games. After Ghost launched Need for Speed Heat in 2019, EA announced that Criterion will be overseeing the series moving forward. The last update on the publisher’s classic racing game series came this past June when EA said that the next entry is in its planning phase.
