Need for Speed The Run PC Patch Available Now and it comes with a Special Bonus!

January 31, 2012

It's been a long time in the making but today we're very happy to say that Need for Speed The Run patch is now available.  Here are some highlights of the updates in the patch, but for a full list visit the Need for Speed "Downloads" page:

- 30 FPS cap is disabled when v-sync is set to OFF in advanced display settings
- Tweaked reset behavior for a number of tracks in The Run where resets seemed too close to the main race route
- When players go off track, they will be reset back onto the track instead of at the last checkpoint.  Crashes will still result in a reset to the last checkpoint.
- Added Quick Match option from multiplayer menu
– Players now have the option to mute VOIP of other players in multiplayer sessions
– Reduced unrealistic behaviors when multiplayer opponents drive off-road or collide with world objects
- Autolog Friends now displays whether a friend is online, joinable or offline in player badge

We're also very excited to announce that not only will PC players get all the updates; they'll also get all the Signature Edition Booster Pack cars!  You'll be able to take on The Run, challenge Series or your friends in multiplayer with these signature rides:
