After a brief delay, the latest Need for Speed game is coming to PC on March 15. The racing game was released for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in early November, but developer Ghost Games decided to put some extra work into the PC version before launch.
The game will run at up to 4K resolution with unlocked framerates, so it could put even high-end rigs to the test. Ghost is adding support for a manual transmission mode to all three platforms with this release, and the PC version will support "a selection" of steering wheels from Logitech, Thrustmaster, and Fanatec. There's no word yet on which wheels have made the cut, though.
The game is up for pre-order on Origin, although no system requirements are posted as yet. The standard version is priced at $69.99. The Deluxe version offers up a fancier starter car, early access to upcoming car upgrades like a turbocharger, and other perks for an additional $10. Reviews of the console versions have been mixed, but it will be interesting to see how the game performs with more, erm, horsepower at its disposal.
