There will also be a quick race mode that will randomly select the player's car, the opponents' cars, and the track they'll race on.

  Hot Pursuit has an all new aggressive AI system that will you have you running from the cops in fear. Spike strips will be used to slow you down along with helicopters and side-swiping cop cars. Whether you choose the hot pursuit mode or championship mode, there will be awards that include new cars, new paint jobs, and previously inaccessible courses.

Development for Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit should be completed within three months of now. We here at PSX Extreme are incredibly excited on what may be the fastest and most exhilarating racer of the year.
