VIDEO: EA Need For Speed Hot Pursuit brings back cop chases

EA has announced yet another title in its Need for Speed arsenal, this time Need for Speed Hot Pursuit.

Announcing the new title at its E3 2010 press conference, the new game, developed by Criterion, will be launching in November 2010 and focus on cops vs. racer chases.

Pocket-lint was in the audience and grabbed the above video of the opening sequence to the game and actual gameplay with two players playing cops and robbers (car chase style) along a country highway. 

Criterion is also upping the ante with the introduction of an all-new online network called Need for Speed Autolog, where players can compare racing stats and automatically get personalised gameplay recommendations from their friends.

Gamers will automatically get notifications from friends in their network; when they beat their score for example.

Developed by Criterion Games, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit will be available on 16 November 2010 in North America, and on 18th and 19 November 2010, in Europe on the Xbox 360, PS3  and PC.

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit will also be available on the Wii and is being developed by Exient.
