The 2020 remaster of 2010’s Need For Speed Hot Pursuit has a new update today. It adds a brand new feature, a livery editor.
Previously, Hot Pursuit 2010, like many of Criterion’s games, only lets you pick a colour for your cars. With this addition, you’ll get access to a similar livery editor seen in Need For Speed Heat.
However, there’s one omission. You can’t share wraps with other players. So that means no, you can’t download the fancy itasha wraps with anime characters with this, unfortunately. Though for those that can make one, those liveries can still be seen by other players in online races, even works in cross-play too.
There are a few pre-made liveries available as well.
The wrap limit is 300 decals, or 100MB in size, whichever comes first. There’s a report livery function available at the end of the race, should you see inappropriate ones being used online.
In addition, expect to see improvement in performance on consoles as well. There will be a new setting option called Maximum setting for PS4 Pro, Xbox One X last-gen consoles as well as the next-gen consoles: PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. This will let you play at 4K/50+ fps (uncapped) and 4K/60fps respectively.

Need For Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered is out now on PS4, PS5, PC (Steam, Origin), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch.
