Need for Speed Summary
Ghost Games to hand back franchise to Criterion.
EA have announced Need for Speed will be coming to Origin Access on July 12th. This is the same Need for Speed title that Ghost Games (the developers of the game) recently. Now that the game is no longer being supported, EA are giving PC players complete access to the game, assuming they have Origin Access.
Origin Access will also be receiving the Battlefield 1 Play First Trial from October 13th, one whole week before the game’s actual release date. Whether Origin Access members also get to play FIFA 17 a week before its release has not been announced, sadly.
Ghost Games, developers of the rebooted Need for Speed series, have announced they will no longer be providing updates for Need for Speed.
Need for Speed launched back in November 2015 (March 2016 for PC players). Since then, Ghost Games have been updating the game each month, adding features such as: a photo mode, steering wheel support, manual transition and more. Need for Speed received mixed reviews, currently sitting at sixty-six on Metacritic.
While gamers in the West have had to be satisfied with the recent Need for Speed reboot, which has received mediocre reviews on the console version (yet to be released on PC) - Korean gamers are getting a decidedly snazzier version called Need for Speed: Edge that uses the Frostbite 3 engine.
Last week EA revealed that the PC version of Need for Speed would be released on the 17th March, with 4k resolution and an unlocked frame-rate, which should hopefully result in a decent port.
Today EA's revealed the official system requirements for 720p30 (Low Settings) and 1080p60 (High Settings).
