These past couple months, EA and Ghost Games released a number of updates for this latest Need for Speed title. While performance has been slightly improved, the game still suffers from various CPU optimization issues.
Last month, the game received its latest update that allowed players to acquire abandoned cars, introduced a new mode called Sprint Runs and added steering wheel support.
