Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit trailer – Click above to watch video after the jump

Halo Reach has already grabbed gobs of attention and Gran Turismo 5 is waiting to lure any remaining bloodshot eyeballs and fatigued thumbs away, but they're not the only new video games on the block. Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit will have a playable demo available on October 26, and it hits store shelves November 16.

While you're waiting and deciding whether you want to play the part of a cop or speeder (and deciding whether to play the game on your Playstation 3, xBox 360 or PC), you can check out the latest trailer for it after the jump, wherein a McLaren MP4-12C in black and white is called on to apprehend a scofflaw in a Porsche 918 Spyder. Hat tip to Yaroukh!

      I liked everything up until the spontaneous spike strip magically appearing from the challenger’s rear axle. Also, the low flying helicopter concept is starting to get really juvenile.

      I actually used to be a huge NFS fan in my early PS days... They just had that mysterious feel to them that always felt special every time I turned on the console. I think this was back when EA Canada was working on the games. Now it's more about looking cool and showing off.

      We already have Gran Turismo as the real driving simulator... I'm waiting for developers to come out with the "real law enforcement evasion simulator".

      I mean honestly, is a cop that's driving around in a challenger going to casually radio to HQ, "Hey uh... By the way, I have a silver Porsche doing speeds of 150 MPH. Just though I'd let you guys know... Yeah.". Or do you think the cop may express just a bit more emotion in real life, expressing the fact that a silver bullet just rocketed past his cruiser and his car is effectively useless in this situation.

      And while you're at it, bring back REAL countries to the game. I remember in NFS4 you could select an option which would change the language of radio communication based on the country you were speeding in. I remember taking a (now) old school M5, through some small town in Germany being pursued by other fellow police M5's with their radio communication completely in German.

      Or taking my lawless driving to France, listening to their dual tone sirens all the while they'd be radioing in French. Classic, and badass.

      None of that neon spray paint with the chrome wheels was necessary for me to feel cool.

        I have to agree. watching a challenger keep up with, and then pass a 918 isn't exactly realistic. A regular one couldn't do it, and an interceptor model would be much heavier and have an even harder time. That also didn't look like 150mph.

      Looks cool so far

      The Fast & Furious crowd will be really excited. To the rest of us who live in reality... *yawn*

        Why make fun of gamers? You are an @$$
        • 4 Years Ago
        Fail, hands down.
        F&F has rather close to drifting and 'underground' stuff... I'm glad NFS is taking a little break from that.

        They changed developers from the usual people that made the Need for Speed games to Criterion. The guys that created the Burnout Franchise and if you've ever played that. it's some one of the most fun/intense racers ever created.

        Platinum,

        and that is the reason for me getting excited about this game. I have not really cared for the NFS franchise for a long time, but when I heard Criterion was making this game, it changed my whole perspective.

        Now we just need to convince EA to let Criterion make a new Road Rash game, and I would be thrilled.

        Oh I'm sorry... I am assuming you are a REAL LIFE race car driver? no? oh then shhhhh...
      • 4 Years Ago
      It's not supposed to be realistic. It's a video-game. Duh.
        • 4 Years Ago
        But they say it is....Doh!
      • 4 Years Ago
      +1 for using Hadouken!'s Bombshock in the trailer. As for the actual game, bleh. I think NFS II was the best in the franchise.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I will kill myself the day I see a 918 with N2O...
      On the other hand, Quite the accurate sounds. Very nice job NFS.
        • 4 Years Ago
        You must not want to live very long, because it will probably happen sooner or later.

        Wellll, as long as AB doesn't post about it, you're alright I guess..lol

      I love how they say that "he's not slowing down" then you see the engine air wings open up on the 918. So cool. I'm over here replaying this thing over and over not listening to my teleconference.

      Awesome! I loved the original Hot Pursuit when I was a kid. I always loved taking on the role of a cop, can't wait for this to come out!
        • 4 Years Ago
        This make me so happy... i loved playing this game which seemed so long ago...
        • 4 Years Ago
        Absolutely. I remember being mesmerized playing NFS 2, and the first "most wanted" was addictive as all get-out. Unrealistic, but god are they fun!
      • 4 Years Ago
      Finally they realized EA ruined the NFS series...honestly, the last decent one was (imo) most wanted...

      Hopefully criterion (a subsidiary of EA, yes, but still) did things right this time...and it's looking like they're at least headed in the right direction.
      • 4 Years Ago
      oh yeah! another rubbish game!
      i dont think dodge able to keep up with 918 spyder, this is super beyond reality
      game for kids
