Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Full Map Revealed - 'four times bigger than Burnout Paradise'
Criterion has now the full map of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, and reveals that it claims to be four times larger than of Burnout Paradise.
The entire map is divided in 4 areas - Mission Beach, Fox Lair Pass, Eagle Crest and Three Points. The whole area is called SEACREST County.
Matt Webster said to EA Blog when asked about play area of NFS Hot Pursuit "Put simply it’s around 4 x Bigger than Burnout Paradise, for cars to be able to usefully reach 260 miles an hour. So well over 100 miles of tarmac road & 30-40% more off-road & shortcut areas, we've opened a lot of that space up for race & chase as you are playing online versus human cops, at night time you can just turn your lights off and hide behind a bush, something that isn't really achievable with AI, when you include elevation changes its a chunk of room so for anyone familiar with Burnout it's about 4 times larger."
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit scheduled for 18 November 2010.
