Those of you who demand 60 frames per second may be disappointed.
However, the development experts at Evolution Studios say 1080p and 30FPS for the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive Driveclub is "absolutely the best thing."
Game director Paul Rustchynsky told VG24/7 that 30FPS would be the best option for this particular project:
"As we've got more familiar with the hardware, and also, looking at what we wanted from the game, we decided that 1080p, 30 frames per second is absolutely the best thing, because what that allows us to do is to deliver the most detailed cars in-race that you will ever have seen."
Rustchynsky added that they're creating "some of the biggest tracks you will ever see in a racing game" and we can also expect some pretty amazing environments. They'll feature a nifty "full global illumination system" that alters the time of day and even reflections. This is the type of next-gen technical prowess we've been waiting to see from Sony's new console, right?
The director pointed out that inFamous: Second Son looked and played pretty damn good at 30FPS. We'll also mention the amazing Uncharted franchise. See, 60FPS is really only essential for certain types of games, we contend.
