Need for Speed Hot Pursuit demo out October 26

Electronic Arts and developer Criterion Games have revealed that a demo for its upcoming racer, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, will be available on October 26.

The info comes by way of a new heart-pounding trailer for the game, which shows of a variety of high-speed chases and diverse environments. You’ll be able to race and chase across more than 100 in-game miles of drivable road, and then compare (and talk trash over) all kinds of stats with the game’s “Autolog” hub.

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is out November 19, and I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited for a game in the series before. Criterion’s work on Burnout Paradise was incredible, and Hot Pursuit is definitely looks to be shaping up to be another winner.
