Need For Speed System Requirements Revealed

Need For Speed

The Need For Speed franchise has really struggled to find its identity in recent years and released extremely similar experiences with just a few minor tweaks. This is a crying shame because the older games are perceived as some of the best arcade racers ever devised and appealed to a wide audience. Personally, I’ve always enjoyed the intense chases between the police and felons in Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit. Although, some users enjoy the whole idea of street races and tuning up vehicles.

On another note, the previous title, Need For Speed: Rivals was a complete shambles on PC and locked at 30 frames-per-second. Furthermore, the studio tied the frame-rate to the game engine’s speed which explains why the frame-rate was restricted at such a low figure. Even when you apply a manual fix, the engine almost runs in a fast forward mode, which almost defies belief! Thankfully, EA has learnt from this debacle and decided to postpone the latest Need For Speed game on PC to make it run properly.

This latest entry will support an uncapped frame-rate, ultra-high resolutions, high texture quality, and a variety of commonly used steering wheels. Today, the company unveiled the system requirements to play the game at the low and high preset:
