Need For Speed March 3 Update Adds Manual Transmission, Drag Racing and More

Need for Speed is set to launch on PC in just a few weeks and it seems that newest update for the game will bring the “PC exclusive” manual transmission option to PS4 and XboxOne. Aside from that, the update will bring two new cars, a 1932 Ford Hot Rod and Aaron Beck ‘BeckKustoms F132’. Both cars will have the same options for tuning as all other models. The patch should be already available for XboxOne and PS4 owners.
