NFS Hot Pursuit Remastered Update: Patch 2 adds Wrap Editor + patch notes

An update is coming to the most recent Need For Speed title, Hot Pursuit Remastered, which will see you fly around Seacrest County in style.

Let's take a look at what is on offer.

NFS Hot Pursuit Remastered update release date

The new update will hit the game on 25 February.

It should drop at 9am UTC, which is 4am ET / 9am GMT, so be ready first thing in the morning!

Wrap Editor

The headline for Patch 2 is the introduction of a Wrap Editor. This will allow players to customise cars, applying your own individual style to your ride and really stand out.

Unfortunately players won't be able to share designs, so don't expect some pro-level paint jobs to be available for download. Hopefully that is coming down the line though.

However, custom wraps can be seen in online races, including crossplay races. There is also a limit of 300 decals or 100 MB, which ever you hit first.

Along with all this a new Maximum Setting mode will allow for 4K60fps on PS5 and Xbox Series X, as well as uncapped 4K50+ on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X!

Patch notes

As you would expect with any patch, there are a raft of changes and bug fixes coming in to make the game better for everyone. Some are exclusive to certain platforms.
