Pursuit is a racer versus police game type featured in Need for Speed: Rivals.
PoliceRCPD units are obliged to pursue and bust racers found on the roads of Redview County. Police units can initiate a pursuit against a racer by activating their sirens within the vicinity of a racer.
A single police unit can attempt to pursue multiple racers although performing such an action will dispatch support units. Racers are each given a heat level from one to ten, with each level giving a higher reward of Speed Points upon a successful bust.
A police officer will be ejected from a pursuit if they lose sight of a racer for a small amount of time or if their vehicle is wrecked.
Racers can evade a pursuit by either outrunning pursuing RCPD units, exiting a pursuers field of vision or by entering a Safehouse.
A racer that is wrecked by a police unit will be retired from their current free roam session and forgo any Speed Points they have earned during that session. A busted racer will respawn in the nearest Safehouse.
