ORIGINAL STORY 11/02/2015 3.55pm: The PC version of Need for Speed launches on 17th March.

It arrives on PC with an unlocked framerate and 4k resolution support.

Manual transmission, one of the most-requested features of players of the console versions, will be in the game when the PC version launches.

EA said manual transmission will be patched into the console versions, too, although there's no time-frame for this.

The PC version will support a selection of wheels from Logitech, Thrustmaster and Fanatec.

As you'd expect of an EA PC game, Origin Access members can play early for a limited time, starting 10th March.
