Need for Speed Rivals will not support Racing Wheels

Electronic Arts has officially confirmed that its next installment of the racing game Need for Speed Rivals will not be compatible with racing wheels and other external devices.

Usually, fans of racing games like to play with a steering wheel and with a view to enjoy better impressions of the game, Need for Speed: Rivals, the latest addition to the famous arcade series from Electronic Arts will ignore this possibility.

Indeed, the official FAQ of the publisher confirmed that the game "will not support racing wheels and other devices." Also, it will settle controllers at default for different host platforms.

Parallel to this news, NFS Rivals ultimately will not run at 60 frames per second on PC, but at 30 FPS, as confirmed by many websites.

Need for Speed: Rivals is now available on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.  Xbox One and PS4 versions will arrive respectively on 22 and 29 November.


  1. A racing game that does not support steering wheels from a company that does not support it’s customers. Designing a racing game with no steering wheel support. How dumb is that? On NFS Rivals Xbox 360 you can drive with a wheel sort of. The problem is that you can’t make selections on the map with it. You can’t use a combination of a wheel and a controller. It won’t work. I read reviews before buying this game and not one of the reviewers mentioned this. This confirms my belief that they are all in bed together with companies like EA. EAs customer service is non-existent. I have tried over and over to reach them. By the way this is not the only problem with the game. I get an error every time the game starts saying there is something wrong with my Origin account and that certain features of the game won’t work. I will never find out what is wrong since their c.s. sucks. The biggest problem however is in the online play. The voice chat does not work. Also you rarely get a chance to actually race anyone online because of how autolog has everyone all over the place (miles away). And since you can’t communicate online the only way you can meet anyone is by chance, or by trying to chase them down with the map. Oh, I forgot, the map won’t work with the wheel so you can’t do that either.
    After finishing the game the online play would have given the game much more value but after 2 weeks more people are playing but rarely together. I finally cut my loses and sold the game on ebay. I will never buy another NFS game again since they took me on the last 3 in the series. Gamers need to take the reviewers and EA task for this. That is the only our voices will be heard.
