Hot Pursuit's gameplay is set in the fictional Seacrest County, which is based on the American states of California, Oregon and Washington, in which players can compete in several types of races. Players can compete online (except in the Wii version), which includes additional game modes such as Hot Pursuit, Interceptor and Race. The game features a new social interaction system called "Autolog", which is a network that connects friends for head-to-head races and compares player stats for competition. The game also features paid downloadable content in the form of new cars, new race and pursuit events, and new trophies and achievements.
The game features 7.1 channel surround sound in PCM (Dolby Digital and DTS are also available). The soundtrack of Hot Pursuit features a general track list as is seen in EA Black Box Need for Speed games such as Most Wanted, Carbon and Undercover rather than a scored soundtrack as seen in ProStreet and Shift. The song "Edge of the Earth" by Thirty Seconds to Mars serves as the game's theme song; other songs in the game's soundtrack include "Big Weekend" by Lemonade, "Cinema" by Benny Benassi (feat. Gary Go), "Opposite of Adults" by Chiddy Bang, "Sofi Needs a Ladder" by Deadmau5 (feat. SOFI), and "Watercolour" by Pendulum. The game's musical score, which is usually played during the police pursuit events, was composed by Marios Takoushis and Vanesa Lorena.
EA announced the first official DLC for Hot Pursuit on 6 December 2010. The Super Sports Pack adds three new cars; the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, Gumpert Apollo S, and Bugatti Veryon 16.4 Super Sport in variants for both sides of the law. There are also 13 new race and pursuit events, and new achievements/trophies to earn. It was released on 21 December on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in North America and on 22 December on PlayStation Network in Europe. Although this is the first official DLC, extra additional content could also be purchased via online storefronts.
EA looking for a quick money grab. The game is okay, however it seems to be missing some console exclusives every racing game needs. 1st splitEA looking for a quick money grab. The game is okay, however it seems to be missing some console exclusives every racing game needs. 1st split screen play. 2nd Offline lan play or system link. I like the racing multiplayer games in our house but I'm not going to pay 3 xbox live subscription just to be able to play online lan.
@retro_player_77However, despite how "low" that game is, I consider it better in many ways than the latest and recent NFS (not mandatory online, local multiplayer, customizable races for single players and multiplayer and a hint of the classic NFS, ah, and no microtransactions) 2b1af7f3a8
