Electronic Arts has announced a new update for Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered that changes the performance and resolution. The wrap editor, which you may know from Need for Speed Heat, will also be included in the game with the update.
EA has announced that Need For Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered will be expanded with a free update today, Thursday. The update makes, among other things, technical changes and brings the racing game on the PS5 and Xbox Series X to a 4K resolution with 60 FPS. After the upgrade, the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X will offer 4K and unlimited 50+ FPS.
The new update for Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered was announced on the EA blog. In addition to the graphics and performance changes mentioned, it includes a wrap editor with which you can create elaborate designs and paintwork for each of the cars in the game. You are allowed to create your own creations and select pre-made wraps.
In addition to the color mixer, two additional symbols can be found after the update:
- One for the slide editor
- One for pre-made wraps
“This patch introduces a brand new feature that has not been in the original Need for Speed Hot Pursuit game: A Wrap Editor! This allows you to customize your cars, apply your own style, and stand out of the crowd. If you’ve played a recent Need for Speed title, you should be quickly familiar with the wrap editor,” said Electronic Arts.
Player-made wraps cannot be shared with other players and are only available in online races. The decal limit of each slide is 300 decals or 100MB, whichever comes first. In addition, a function for reporting inappropriate slides will be implemented in the final screen of a multiplayer race.
A few additional bug fixes and optimizations were also incorporated into the new update. You can find more information on this in the corresponding post by the community team.
