New Need For Speed Trailer Shows Burnout Influences
EA has released the first bit of gameplay for Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit; you can find some examples over at YouTube.
Here's some footage of one of the unique challenges you'll have to face in Criterion's upcoming racer. In this one, you have to beat a target time set by Belj, and while the challenge obviously isn't long, it appears shortcuts are vital to success. Furthermore, you can clearly spot the Burnout influence during a crash; it features some of that spectacular slo-mo destruction goodness Criterion patented in their primary franchise.
Next, we'll definitely want to see some Hot Pursuit. It just has to be the highlight and if you think it isn't as fun to chase as it is to race, well...you've likely never played a Hot Pursuit before. Chasing is a bit more strategic and really opens the game up in terms of variety and longevity. Longevity isn't something we're going to question; one could quite literally play Burnout Paradise until they're dead. Of course, all that DLC helps, but don't think Criterion won't do the same for the new Need for Speed.
