So we are back at the cops vs racers..or “thugs” how they say in the intro. The gameplay will resemble the one of Hot Pursuit 2. The action will happen in Redview Country which this time is an open road environment… and yes, finally the Ferrari is back in a NFS game.
The game was very criticized for the limitations it has on PC, the 30 fps limit, the lack of mouse support in menus, but it didn’t bother me, or maybe this limit was removed after some patches cause I never checked how many FPS I have and for the mouse thing…I play racing games with a controller anyway so I don’t care.
If the 30 fps limit is still on, and you have a beefy rig that can run it at more than that (the game has very high system requirements) you can try this quick fix: Right-click the Rivals shortcut and select the properties, add the following line to the end of the Target entry after a space:
-GameTime.MaxSimFps 60 -GameTime.ForceSimRate 60+
I haven’t tried it but it supposedly work how it should not put the game on fast forward like the first fix did .
Bellow you can see the release date and system requirements:
