Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit PC Patch Adds Three Cars, Fixes Bugs, and Improves Performance

3
A new, free update has arrived for the PC version of EA's Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit that not only fixes some bugs and improves some performance issues, but also adds three new vehicles to the mix.

Interested parties can download the Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 1.020 Patch from FileShack. You can view the complete list of fixes and new car list below. Just be aware that once you install the patch, you'll only be able to play online against those who've also done so. The game's Autolog feature won't be affected though, and will continue to update you with your friends' event progress, regardless of the version they're running.

    • Player car engine audio volume too low.
    • Some issues with CPU performance.
    • Rare crash issue when entering the Career map screen
