The Need for Speed reboot launched on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One late last year but unfortunately the PC version was delayed to accommodate a number of fan requests. It now seems the wait was well worth it with a whole host of improvements and all the new content added to the console versions post launch.

Major improvements include an unlocked frame rate, 4K resolution with high fidelity audio, wheel support and probably the most requested feature, manual transmission (which is rumored to also be coming to the console versions). Need for Speed is also being said to be supported for at least the next few coming months, meaning more free content for all versions of the game.
