EA and Ghost Games have finally dated the PC version of Need for Speed after it was delayed last year.
Ghost Games have used the extra development time to craft the definitive Need for Speed PC experience. This includes unlocking the framerate, and bumping the resolution up to 4K. The game will look incredible and run smoothly. Of course, that’s not all PC users will get with Need for Speed. Steering wheel support and manual transmission are finally coming with the PC version, two things the community has been asking for since launch. Select steering wheels from Logitech, Thrustmaster, and Fanatec will be supported.
PC users benefit heavily from the PS4 and Xbox One versions. At launch, the PC version will contain all the improvements and tweaks already released on PS4 and Xbox One. This includes the Icons and Legends updates. The Showcase update won’t arrive on PC till after launch.
Ghost Games have also confirmed that manual transmission will be making its way to PS4 and Xbox One, though they did not reveal when. Unfortunately, they did not reveal whether or not support for steering wheels is coming to consoles.
Need for Speed is out on PC March 15. Origin Access members can try the game early starting March 10.
