It’s official: Criterion Games’ Need for Speed title is now known as Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit.

It seems to be a proper old-school, cops vs robbers title. Back to the old days of the series. Hooah.

It’s out on November 16 in the US and November 19 in Europe and uses Autolog to allow players to compare racing stats and automatically get personalized gameplay recommendations from their friends.

Hot Pursuit allows for full careers as both a cop and a racer – solo or connected via Need for Speed Autolog. This network not only connects friends, but also enables players to compare performances and stats to others not on their buddy list.
