Need for Speed PC Specs, Supported Wheels Announced

Following the announcement of Need for Speed’s PC release date last week, developer Ghost Games has now revealed the game’s minimum and recommended specs and provided a list of supported racing wheels. Scroll down to get the details.

Need for Speed will launch on PC on March 15. Below you’ll find the minimum (for 720p/30fps) and recommended (for 1080p/60fps) requirements for the racing game. Additionally, there are a total of eight supported racing wheels, from peripheral companies like Logitech, Thrustmaster, and Fanatec.

Additionally, Need for Speed’s PC version will offer manual transmission, which was a much-talked about feature by fans, according to the developer. Manual transmission is also coming to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions through a future update.

The PC edition of Need for Speed will include the console version’s previous updates, including Icons and Legends, from the start. The new Showcase update, meanwhile, will be available on PC “shortly after launch.”
