About Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit brings the franchise back to its roots with intense cops vs. racer chases. The game features Need for Speed Autolog where players compare racing stats and automatically get personalized gameplay recommendations from their friends. Need for Speed Hot Pursuit players can also experience the thrill of the chase and the rush of the escape as they play through full careers as both a cop and a racer - solo or connected. The high speed busts and heart-stopping getaways are all connected via Need for Speed Autolog.

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit speeds past the arcade-racing competition with its deeply connected Autolog system, breathtaking visuals, and the thrill that comes with driving exotic cars at 200 mph while chasing, or escaping, your fellow racers.
