Need For Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered revealed
Mark your calendars: It is set to launch on the 6th of November.
The Need For Speed series ignited in us the passion for virtual racing through real-life graphics, the best cars and a story that beckons to be heard before starting off. Some revered past icons induct Most Wanted, Underground, NFS 2 SE, Shift, Carbon and in my opinion the best of all, Hot Pursuit that really took things for us and Electronic Arts (EA) several notches above.
Gaming fans are bound to get excited with the reveal of the second instalment of the Hot Pursuit game which bears the sobriquet, Hot Pursuit Remastered. The trailer of the game is already out with the number 510 (to be pronounced as five-ten) being the major takeaway. Incidentally, it is also the Police radio code for speeding or racing vehicles. It has also been made famous by a myriad of Hollywood films. The highly innovative and amusing trailer shows a man getting perturbed and bamboozled by this number as he tries to examine how he can defeat a rival of his who had earlier won a race against him reaching the finish line in 5 minutes and 10 seconds.
Like always, the HP Remastered will be available on a smorgasbord of gaming devices such as PC, XBOX One, PS4 and even Nintendo. However, in case you are a Nintendo user, keep in mind that you will have the opportunity to race against your opponents not before the 13th of November as against PC, PS4 and XBOX One users who will get access to the game on the 6th itself.
It will also have a multiplayer option to race full bore arousing friendly competition. As the Hot Pursuit has witnessed a renaissance years after the original game debuted, it has been bestowed with high-quality graphics and image quality for ultimate VR experience. PS4, XBOX One and Nintendo Switch users will be impinged to play the game in 1080p at 30fps while PlayStation 4 Pro and XBOX One X users can pick between 1080p 60fps ‘performance mode’ and 4K 30fps ‘fidelity mode.’
For the PC aficionados, EA has ruled out that they will be able to enjoy playing the game only in 60fps regardless of the resolution to provide a level playing field for cross-platform multiplayer experience. Things might get a bit preposterous for PC users but even then, the thrill of driving won’t be exiguous.
While enthusiasts won’t care much for the prices, it will start at USD 39.99, just a shade under USD 40 for PS4, XBOX One and Nintendo Switch and PC gamers will be enabled to download it from Steam and Origin for USD 29.99.
Let the race begin!
