Hot Pursuit demo coming this week

The latest Need for Speed demo landing online in a few days

Posted on
Criterion Games, a studio of Electronic Arts, today announced a demo for Need for Speed Hot Pursuit. This demo will give gamers early access to this holiday’s hottest action racing title. Starting October 26 and until November 9th, players can experience the intensity of friendly competition, using Need for Speed’s social network, Autolog. This new in-game technology makes personalized recommendations to gamers based on what their friends have been playing.

“Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is blowing the roof off social competition and bringing excitement back to the racing genre,” says Matt Webster, Producer at Criterion Games. “We’re putting players and their friends at the heart of the gameplay experience by automatically tracking and comparing each person’s performances. This demo will give gamers a snapshot of Need for Speed Autolog and how we’re amping up the energy of intense pursuits, competitive racing and online connected play – nothing is more powerful than beating your friends.”

In the Need for Speed Hot Pursuit demo, players will be able to chase as a cop in the Dark Horse Hot Pursuit event, speeding through the coastal highway and mountainous ridges of Seacrest County. At the heart of the demo is a social network called Autolog that tracks cop and racer performances while playing solo and uses those statistics to generate fierce competition between friends. Once players add a friend to their Need for Speed friends list, the second event will unlock called Roadster’s Reborn, where gamers can compete as racers to set the best times. When they download and play the demo they will also earn 500 bounty award points in the full game for both Cop and Racer careers. Accruing bounty will allow players to unlock events and exotic cars and progress through their careers in the full game.

The Need for Speed Hot Pursuit demo will be available for download October 26 on Xbox LIVE Marketplace worldwide and the PlayStation Network. The retail game will be available on November 16th on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. The Limited Edition can be pre-ordered now on all platforms to gain exclusive content at no extra cost, with participating retailers worldwide (while supplies last).
