Need For Speed Rivals “More Visually Impressive” On PS4 Than PC

Need for Speed Rivals, the upcoming racer from Electronic Arts, is said to be more visually impressive on PlayStation 4 than PC.

According to Polygon, who got some hands-on time with Rivals, Sony's next-gen system will likely be the ideal place to play Ghost Games' new racing title.

We spent the first part of our session playing the Windows PC version of Rivals, which ran well, with a PlayStation 4 controller. Later, we switched to the PS4 version and were surprised to find a game that looked even more impressive than its PC counterpart, with better texture detail, improved lighting on cars and sharper graphics overall.

The PS4 version did suffer from a higher incidence of issues such as parts of the world failing to load, but developer Ghost Games assured us they would have those problems ironed out in time for launch.

It's a bit surprising to see a game from Electronic Arts not take full advantage of the power that a super-powered PC can offer. Are you excited for Need for Speed Rivals? Will you be picking this game up for PlayStation 4? Let us know in the comments below.
