Need For Speed coming to PC in March with 4K support and new gameplay features
Electronic Arts has announced that the latest Need for Speed is coming to PC on March 15, complete with 4K support and some new features.
Having launched for consoles back in 2015, the Need for Speed reboot has kept PC players waiting for a while now.
Fortunately, it seems the delay will be worth the wait. The PC version of Need for Speed will ship with a host of improvements and new features, including the addition of manual transmission for all cars.
The console versions lacked the above feature, which was a huge turn off for hardcore racing fans.

Electronic Arts announced the release in a brief new trailer. The trailer also confirms the game will support Logitech, Thrustmaster and Fanatec steering wheels at launch.
In a blog post, developer Ghost Games provided further details on the PC release.
“We’re incredibly proud of how good Need for Speed looks visually, a sentiment we know many of you share, and we’re excited to show you the game running at a higher frame rate.”
“Seeing is believing so we’re hoping when you see and play Need for Speed running with an unlocked framerate and at a 4k resolution you’ll be just as excited as we are.”

We said Need for Speed had “some impressive car customisation, but needy, irritating characters,” scoring it 7/10 in our review.
Need for Speed PC will be available on March 15. Origin Access members will get a five day head start, gaining access to the game on March 10.
Now you can fistbump all the obnoxious characters and drink a bunch of Monster in 4K.
