Need for Speed‘s had a rough go of it lately, with several of the series’ older games, namely Need for Speed Carbon, Need for Speed Undercover, Need for Speed Shift, Need for Speed Shift 2: Unleashed, and Need for Speed The Run delisted from digital storefronts in late May.
But it’s not all bad news. Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered will be coming to Xbox Game Pass and EA Play on June 24th. The title, a remaster of Criterion’s 2010 Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, features cross-platform multiplayer on all platforms. It released in December of last year.
The game was remastered by Stellar Entertainment, who also did the remaster for Criterion’s excellent Burnout Paradise. The remaster includes all of the game’s DLC and added new car colors, quality of life improvements, an updated photo mode, and more. We thought it was pretty good, so it’s worth checking out if you have a racing itch.
