As we’ve informed you, Black Box was considering removing the idiotic 30fps lock that was present in the PC version of Need For Speed: The Run and that time has finally come. Oh yeah, PC gamers can finally enjoy NFS: The Run with a higher framerate as Black Box and EA have released a patch for the game that unlocks it. And get this; the patch comes with the Signature Edition Booster Pack cars for free to all PC gamers. Hell yeah.
To get the patch simply login to Origin on your PC and it will automatically download / install the patch.
Here is the changelog for NFS: The Run’s update:
– 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

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
