Electronic Arts will be releasing a Limited Edition version of Criterion Games’ Need for Speed Hot Pursuit. Set to launch November 16 for the 360, PC, PS3, and Wii, Hot Pursuit is bringing the traditional cops vs. racers setup, dating back to 1998’s Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit, back to the series. After a hiatus of eight years, it’ll be nice to rekindle my love of outrunning cruisers with cars I will never be able to afford.
The Limited Edition will ship at the same time and price of the standard version and feature six additional cars: Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione, Ford Shelby GT500, Audi TT RS Coupé, Chevrolet Camaro SS, Porsche Cayman S and Dodge Challenger SRT8. The Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione and Ford Shelby GT500 will only be available in the LE and not at any other time; however, the Audi TT RS Coupé, Chevrolet Camaro SS, Porsche Cayman S, and Dodge Challenger SRT8 can be unlocked by leveling up in the game.
These high-powered racing machines give players a day-one advantage when they compete – and beat – their friends on the open road. Whether playing in real-time live multiplayer or challenging and comparing races with friends offline, Limited Edition owners have an edge over their friends – an especially important benefit since the game is all about the connected social experience. At the heart of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is a groundbreaking network called Autolog that tracks cop and racer performances and uses those statistics to generate fierce competition between friends by dynamically changing the way they play the game. By having the fastest cars on the road, players can challenge their friends, destroy their times and bask in the glory of their humiliation.
