There have been a couple of new announcements regarding this year’s Need For Speed title.

Bad news first. EA has announced that the PC version of Need For Speed has been delayed until “Spring 2016.” The biggest decision in the delay seems to be to get extra work time on increasing the visual fidelity.

“Part of the conversation includes hearing from our PC community that an unlocked frame rate in Need for Speed is a massive priority for you, and we fully agree. To deliver this, we’ve made the decision to move the PC release date to Spring 2016,” said Ghost Games.

When Need For Speed does find its way to PC, Ghost Games says that all of the content released to that point for the console versions will be available to the PC players on day one.

Now, the good news. Ghost Games and EA are going to be hosting a beta for Need For Speed before the official release in November.

Ghost Games says the beta will help the developer test some technical aspects of the game to get ready for the launch. The beta signup page can be found here and signups close on September 25. Those who are chosen will be notified via email.

Need For Speed releases for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 3.
