High-speed police chases and exotic cars, the defining elements of Hot Pursuit, will definitely be featured. Primarily inspired by the original Need for Speed on 3DO, it'll feature full career modes for both racer and cop, with both sides having their own power-ups such as calling for roadblocks and radar jamming. It'll also feature a social networking feature dubbed "Autolog". An experience system called "Bounty" has been confirmed, although this is unrelated to the bounty seen in Need for Speed Most Wanted. Criterion has described it as more realistic than Burnout Paradise, but less than a simulator, such as Need for Speed SHIFT.
NFS: Hot Pursuit is set in Seacrest County, an entirely open world city which is four times larger than Paradise City, seen in Burnout Paradise.
