NFS: Hot Pursuit play area 400% bigger then Burnout Paradise

Paradise City? A snowflake in the ocean compared to NFS: Hot Pursuit.

Criterion's Matt Webster has said in an interview on the official EA website that Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit's play area will be four times as large as that included in Burnout Paradise.

"Put simply, it’s around four times bigger than Burnout Paradise, for cars to be able to usefully reach 260 miles an hour," said Webster.

"So, well over 100 miles of tarmac road and 30-40 percent more off-road and shortcut areas. We've opened a lot of that space up for race and chase, as you are playing online versus human cops.

"At night time, you can just turn your lights off and hide behind a bush, something that isn't really achievable with AI. When you include elevation changes, it's a chunk of room. For anyone familiar with Burnout, it's about four times larger."

You should totally buy Hot Pursuit. It's amazing, going by its gamescom showing last month.

Do that for PS3, 360, PC and Wii on November 19.
