Need for Speed coming to PC in March, will bring back Manual Shifting

The team at Ghost have been hard at work on the PC port last year’s Need For Speed relaunch and now they’re ready to show how much a couple of months will make for the already beautiful Racer with a new trailer that brings us back to the classic days of NFS: Underground with “Get Low” by Lil Jon and the East Side Boyz blasting in the background.

Starting with the basics, one of the major features of the PC Port will allow the game to run at 4K resolutions with Unlocked Framerate, the PC version will also allow support for Steering Wheel Peripherals from Logitech, Thrustmaster and Fanatec, and most importantly, will mark the return of Manual Shifting, a feature that was left out in the original release. The PC release will also feature all the improvements and updates, including the Icons and Legends updates, on day one.

Ghost has advised that Manual Shifting will be making its way to PS4 and Xbox One sometime soon, with an official announcement coming. The PC version of Need for Speed will be released on March 15th, but if you have an Origins Access subscription, you’ll be able to play the game for a limited amount of time starting on March 10th.
