NFS Shift: Patch Details announced Wednesday, 04.11.2009
NFS ShiftThe first details about the next upcoming patch for Need for Speed Shift were released. The patch concentrates on bugfixes, stability- and performance-improvements, as well as an improved car handling. PC users will be happy to hear about the performance optimizations due to the improved dynamic vertex buffer usage, as well as improved support for ATi graphics cards.
