Need for Speed Demo Sets Series Record

The Need for Speed Hot Pursuit demo was only available for two weeks, but during that time more than 2 million people downloaded the demo, the fastest downloaded demo in Need for Speed Series history! A handful of other stats have been made available;

  • More than 700,000 posts to the Speed Wall
  • More than 5M Autolog Recommendations played between friends
  • 54M miles of road raced
  • 20M cop busts executed

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit will be released on November 16th, and the Limited Edition can be pre-ordered on all consoles to gain access to additional content for no extra cost, so if you’re thinking about picking it up that might be the best way to go. I had a good time with the demo, it was a lot of fun. My only complaint was the long ad for the game at the start of the demo that couldn’t be skipped, which made me not want to replay the demo despite how fun it was.
