Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit Launch Event
Posted 02 November 2010 - 06:56 PM
What do you get if you mix some Super cars, Ben Collins, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit and some awesome food? a heavenly day out that's what! and that's just what we had when we took a trip to Longcross Test Track in Chobham last Wednesday for the European launch event for Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit.
The event was introduced by Roll Deep, recent winners at this year’s Urban Music Awards and Ben Collins. Ben Collins (formally The Stig) was there doing some secret filming, which will become clear in a day or so, but we also got to ride in some rather nice super-cars around the test track, as you can see from the photos lower down this article, the roar of the engines is something words cannot describe, they are also very low and difficult to get in and out of. Along with playing the game, competing for two Xbox 360 Slims with a time trial and stuffing ourselves with some gorgeous food it all made it into a day which will stick in our memories for a long time.
Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit is being released 16th November and is stepping back to its roots, Criterion Games is bringing back the thrill of the Police chases along with road traps such as stingers and weapons, but they have also added a suite of connected features called Need for Speed Autolog that enables players to connect, compare and compete with their friends effortlessly. In fact if you enjoy high speed car chases you certainly won't be disappointed. The game runs very well, looks very polished and is great fun to play. As we found out from the time trialling which a developer from Criterion Games was demonstrating, there are also short cuts to take which will help with your lap times.
We took a look at Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit in October at Eurogamer Expo and here is what Mechanical R had to say http://www.xboxlivea...http://www.xboxliveaddicts.co.uk/forums/index.php?/topic/48763-eurogamer-expo-10-need-for-speed-hot-pursuit/
A bit more about Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit;
Exotic cars on the open road, the rush of the escape, the thrill of the takedown – this is Need for Speed Hot Pursuit.
Career – For the first time in Need for Speed history, players will experience the gripping and heart-racing action of both cops and racers. Hot Pursuit seamlessly links a tremendously deep and fully-defined single player career with a groundbreaking multiplayer experience across all race modes. In the end, whether playing online with friends, taking on friends challenges or the single player career, players will earn bounty that levels them up and unlocks new cars, weapons and equipment.
Need For Speed Autolog – In Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, your friends drive your gameplay experience. Need for Speed Autolog is a revolutionary system that connects friends directly to each other’s games, enabling them to compare and share all their experiences, pictures and challenges. Need for Speed Autolog instinctively delivers challenges based on what your friends have been doing, creating a hugely dynamic, socially competitive experience.
Weapons and Equipment – Enhance the intensity of the pursuit using multiple weapons as the heat level increases during a pursuit. Whether taking down suspects with a variety of cop weapons or using evasion equipment as a racer to outsmart the cops, players will always have a method for gaining an edge over their opponent.
Cars – In Hot Pursuit, the cars go from hot to hotter. Experience the thrill of driving the world’s most desirable high performance cars at incredible speeds. Feel the power of busting suspects in supercharged cop interceptors like the Lamborghini Reventon or outsmarting the law as a racer in high performance supercars like the Pagani Zonda Cinque.
Seacrest County – Explore a world as diverse as the California coastline with desert, forest, seaside and mountainous regions. The open world of Seacrest County is designed to create the most intense pursuit experiences ever found in a racing game.
If you can't wait until November 16th there is a demo on the marketplace.
See you on the track!
