Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered update improves performance, adds wrap editor
EA has released a new patch for Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered, improving performance on some consoles and adding new car customization options.
If you’re playing Hot Pursuit Remastered on a PS4 Pro, Xbox One X, or via the backward compatibility functionality on the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X, you’re in luck. Thanks to today’s update, those consoles will all offer improved resolution and performance.
On PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, you can now play at 4K resolution and an uncapped framerate that EA touts as “50+” FPS. On PS5 and Xbox Series X, you’ll get 4K, 60 FPS.
This patch also introduces another big feature that players on all platforms can enjoy: car wraps. You’ll be able to pick from a selection of pre-made wraps or design your own, with the editor allowing designs of up to 300 decals or 100 megabytes in size.
While you’ll be able to show off your custom wraps in online races, you won’t be able to share them with other players—anything you make stays on cars in your own garage. Players will also be able to report inappropriate wraps at the end of a multiplayer race, so maybe think twice about your plan to cover your Camaro in photorealistic dicks.
Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered updates the 2010 racers with modern visuals and cross-platform multiplayer support. It’s available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC.
