EA has announced a new remastered version of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit that is releasing on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch next month.
In a press release from EA, Criterion Games, in collaboration with Stellar Entertainment, are bringing new life to the hit 2010 cops vs. racers game, and for the first time will feature cross-platform asynchronous multiplayer competition.

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam & Origin) on November 6th, as well Nintendo Switch on November 13th, for $29.99 USD.
