Need for Speed originally released on PS4 and Xbox One back in November of last year. The developer of the title, Ghost, had annouced at the time that the PC release date would be pushed back in order to meet the demands of the PC community for the game.
Fortunately, these demands were addressed. Need for Speed not only releases on PC through Origin on March 15th, but will have unlocked framerates, manual transmission, and 4K resolution support. In addition, all updates that have been made to the console versions since launch will be integrated into the PC release.
Ghost said that Need for Speed will support most racing wheels from major manufacturers like Logitech, Thrustmaster, and Fanatec.
Members of Origin Access will be able to play the game five days early, on March 10th. Origin Access is EA’s subscription based service that allows gamers to pay $5 a month for access to a variety of games. For everyone else, the game will be out on March 15th.
