Need for Speed is coming to PC with manual transmission

0

Console players will get an update

When Need for Speed heads to PC on March 15, 2016, it'll support manual transmission, and the oft-requested feature will also show up in a future update for the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Electronic Arts announced this morning. A sign of things to come for the series? Perhaps.

Ghost Games is calling this port the definitive version given its uncapped frame rate, support for resolutions up to 4K, and compatibility with select wheels from Logitech, Thrustmaster, and Fanatec.

It will launch with the Icons and Legends updates included, the latter of which re-balances the AI drivers to be less of a rubber-banding annoyance. Another content update, Showcase, is expected to surface on PC soon after the game's mid-March release.

EA hasn't divulged pricing details at this time.
