Titanfall On Xbox One Struggles with Framerate Despite 792p Resolution

The Xbox One will have to look elsewhere to demonstrate its hardware capabilities. (TitanFall, Xbox One)

this is the same site that said thief had a better frame rate on the xbox one than the ps4, when it was actually the other way around, and used it as an example of why resolution does not matter.

When it comes to technical information they are idiots.

NewMonday  +   196d ago
"The frame rate in Titanfall is uneven on the Xbox One and though it's usually fine, it can get downright nasty in specific situations"
and this
"there's noticeable tearing throughout"

but every time Respawn lied to gamers and say the XB1 is best, when a PC will solve these problems and has higher resolution.

The beta wasn't a consistent 60fps either (at the same resolution) and the developers are saying that they will probably increase the resolution? Yeah right.

Titanfall definitely isn't exactly a "titan" in technical impressions.

Im going to say something....(bearing in mind i bought an X1 for Titanfall), why does Guerilla Games get slammed to death for lying about their resolution in multiplayer (and rightly so), but Repsawn, who's exact words were "framerate is king" get a free pass? By saying "framerate is king", that would lead us to believe that they are going to do everything to ensure a solid, or very close to solid 60fps. Judging from the performance of the final build of the game and going from the quote below, they lied.

"A lot of the performance is on the GPU side. There's still room for optimisation and we're still working on it," Baker commented. "Ideally it would have been a rock-solid 60 all the time when we shipped but obviously when there's big fights going on, lots of particle effects, lots of physics objects... we're still working to condense the systems, make them more parallel so we can hit 60 all the time, ideally."

I can't wait to play this game, ive been watching so many Youtube videos in anticipation, but the hypocrisy (sometimes of people who criticized Sony fanboys for being hypocrites) is ridiculous.

BF4 and CoD both run at 720p on the X1, yet people have been playing and enjoying them for months now.....just lower it to 720p for a better framerate. They shouldn't even be thinking about upping the resolution at this point.

" Funny that everyone who has played this, including me has not notice any frame dips"

You are living in complete denial. There have been several articles talking about the frame rates in the beta. I played the beta extensively and I noticed the frame drops in the beta within minutes of playing it.

I figured, like most articles did as well, I would give Respawn the benefit of the doubt because it was a beta. Now it seems the final version is the same as the beta when it comes to frame rate.

I agree with Lucas. Respawn should've dropped it to 720p and see if they could've locked in 60fps. 6v6, average graphics, video tearing and frame rate issues to me overall is disappointing. I had a feeling this would be the final product. I'm glad I rented it. That way I can put it through it's paces and if it doesn't appeal to me I'm only out a few dollars and can send it back.

ok so, I have a serious question. Where exactly does the cloud play into this game? The game is doing 792p has fluctuating frame rates, has only 6v6 player games, has terrible ai if what a lot of youtubers said is true and now you're heraing about screen tearing. what the hell is the cloud being used for and what makes this any different than battlefield or cod? Why do those games appear to be running better and they aren't using the cloud? No fanboy bs, serious responses please.

The power of the One shines on us all.

In all its glorious jagged 792 pixels at 14-20 frames per second.

MS and Respawn can buy all the 9's and 10's in the world, it still won't make a turd shine.

But hey kids won't notice, 11-16 year olds don't know any better.
UltraNova  +   196d ago
What I really want to know is what happened with the power boost from MS's cloud, Azure ? Cause those graphics and 6v6 don't do justice to the combined power of the xb1 and the cloud!!

I mean wasn't it supposed to boost the xb1's power up 4 times? 792p and choppy fps?

Ohh my MS...oh my..

BTW does anybody know if the PC version will be boosted by Azure? If it doesnt who gives a shit cause my overclocked R9 290x is overkill!

Word at ultra nova. If Microsoft can't push better graphics than Sony due to bad xbox one design choices like esram they should swallow that and be focusing on their good design choices like the power of the cloud. First online only game would have been a great opportunity to push some cloud based features and so far I see absolutely nothing advantageous to the cloud. At the bare minimum cloud should have pushed them beyond 6vs 6

@above -

With Titanfall they had the absolute perfect chance to prove every single disbeliever wrong about the cloud and they didn't, either because its too complicated for now (who are we kidding they would if they could)or the cloud is just smoke and mirrors...

Because this is N4G, and Titanfall is THE game XB1 fans have been waiting for.

Looking at visuals from the two games, misleading statements from both companies aside, I know which technical failing seems more understandable to me.

In all fairness, most mainstream reviews don't criticize technical flaws if it's a mainstream game. See: Skyrim.

That said, the beta had a great framerate 90% of the time. But it chugged when you had multiple titans, you were getting in/out of a titan, or if there were multiple explosions going on. Hopefully Respawn can fix those issues but we'll see.

I anticipate a post-release patch. In fact, Respawn already confirmed they're going to patch it post-release to fix up the resolution and the glitches.

I see that you're very touchy when it comes to this game. This is merely confirming what anyone who played the beta have noticed over and over again.

792p check
Frame rate dips check
Texture problems check

Me I find it worrying but not surprising that the usual suspects reviews failed to mention any technical issues when the beta had plenty. As in they completely failed to confirm or deny gamers' concerns from the beta they took part of a few weeks back.

What's the point of a review at this point. If 2 million plus people have already played the beta, and experienced the game first hand, and your review is not contrasting against that very same beta, then it is a pointless review.

Inform people of what has changed since that's the point of a review.

Edit: Let's also not forget about the Ai in the game, and how the power of the cloud with 300,000 plus servers was supposed to give us some of the most advanced Ai and make the XBOX One 3-4 times more powerful.

I rarely talk about TitanFall as I believe that the game gets talked about enough, and sometimes judged harshly. But those are precisely some of the reasons why people are harsh on the game, because the goalposts weren't just moved, they are non existent. It's almost as if a Titan yanked them (goalposts) from the ground and made off with them.

"I see that you're very touchy when it comes to this game."

Only when the usual suspects come in spouting their agendas. Playing the beta, whilst the frame-rate did dip at certain points, it wasn't game-breaking. For the most part, it ran extremely smooth.

I'll judge for myself but I won't take an article based on a quote from a review progress from another publication as gospel. Chances are, its most likely true but I won't blow it out proportion like Kingthrash360 did. If I was like him, I would be going into every KZ:SF article and moaning about how a game released without even basic voice chat support. Someone needs to put these people in their places.

If this game has it's flaws then it should be called out of them but you want to know why most sites don't....because they are scared they'll look like idiots for hyping the shit out of it for over a year now.

People are acting on here that this game has gotten 10/10 on the majority of sites when really it's been getting a normal mixture 7-9s with a few 10s here and there....god knows how since it's not a perfect game as the article points out.

i've been constant in my saying it fun, it will be successful...but that doesn't make me ignore the flaws.
that goes for all games on all systems. tf is the topic so tf is what i'm talking about.

i know bf doesn't work well, i've stated that in my comment..but still the game has achieved a megaton. more than tf for that matter. OVERALL.

tf is great dayum, but is it the best cross gen fps on the market? no its not.
its freash yes, kind of...i mean mechs are in blacklight you can hop in them and tear stuff up, but tf does it better. jet pack are in shadowrun a early 360 fps mp only game..but tf does jetpacks better too.
so yeah its a great game..but putting it up there with the best top dog fps games out there its not better than them overall.

click on my name, check my past posts all the way back to e3 i've never said this game was bad.

perfect games in my mind? imo not many. halo 2 comes close. so does tlou. mario64. mariokart64. goldeneye. ummm mario3 super metriod zelda oot. what else journey. sf2 champ ...samurai showdown 2..uc2.. and mgs. thos have changed the game..oh and gt..all 9+ imo..shout out to gow bgae,the walking dead, ff7 and ffx, wild arms 1 & 2, persona4 my top rpg's i liked shadow complex though it was flawed...all the games i mentioned has flaws...but the are >>>IMO<<< the greats.

"Edit: Let's also not forget about the Ai in the game, and how the power of the cloud with 300,000 plus servers was supposed to give us some of the most advanced Ai and make the XBOX One 3-4 times more powerful."

- This was not the claim for this game. The claims concerning the AI and the cloud, were that the calculations for the ai would be handled via the cloud. MS cloud service would also be utilized for dedicated server support, and likely things such as stats and other server-side data.

The AI was never supposed to be some super-realistic advanced enemy for players to fight against - that what human players are for...

The ai are deliberately weak opponents, since that is their intended role - to serve as cannon fodder and an easy way to rack up points, decreasing the cooldown for your titan for both newbs and experienced players, like farming creeps for your ultimate in a MOBA. This has been mentioned multiple times in previews, interviews and even hands-on videos, by both the community and the devs themselves, yet people like you consistently seem to want to ignore this, and continue to comment on the "bad ai."

As for the "3-4 times more powerful" comment, that was/is a speculation for the X1 in general, and not a Titanfall-specific claim, and if MS and/or devs were able to utilize Azure in such a way to as to boost performance, you think you could give them a little more than 4 months time to execute such a feat before jumping on the "anti-MS full of lies hate train?"

As for those saying the 10/10 was not justified, how not? A review is largely an opinion - like Septic said, reviews are subjective. One mans junk is another mans treasure, so depending on the parameters in which an individual is basing their "review" (opinion) on, a 0/10 could be equally as justified as a 10/10.

Personally, I don't care for reviews for this very point. I don't read them and they have no influence on my take on a game (or a film, or a book, etc.) The only persons opinion that amounts to anything in this regard, is my own. That being said, I don't think any game is worthy of a 10/10, since that (to me) is implying that the game is perfect, which is an unattainable feat. I actually think rating systems in general are arbitrary and mostly useless, since a "6" or an "8" could mean very different things to a lot of different people.

I have no issues with nearly 60fps and a variable frame rate with a 60fps roof. What I have an issue with is screen tearing on a console.

From lead engineer on Titanfall on the final build of the game - "A lot of the performance is on the GPU side. There's still room for optimisation and we're still working on it," Baker commented.

Please don't confuse this comment with me hating on the game, it's not that at all, but people need to stop ignoring the facts that this game doesn't run at locked 60fps or near to a locked 60fps. Respawn said "framerate is king"....but the final build says otherwise.

Well, from Giantbomb review ( there isn't socre yet, but is review in some way ) http://www.giantbomb.com/re...

Quote :

"The frame rate in Titanfall is uneven on the Xbox One and though it's usually fine, it can get downright nasty in specific situations. In one Last Titan Standing match--where every player spawns in a robot suit--several players crammed their mechs into a tight area and began duking it out, and the frame rate dived down to what must have been single digits per second. Even out in wider areas, the game feels a little hitchy from time to time, and there's noticeable tearing throughout. The visuals in Titanfall look nice, but that's mostly due to some solid art and interesting design, not the performance. As of this writing, I haven't seen enough of the PC version to know how well it runs."

no its a 10/10 game...even sessler gave it a 5/5...fps can now somehow be perfect with frame rate drops, bad ai, bad gun balance, 792p, limited game modes no map voting, no sp, no destruction or bullet holes, and 6v6 players....new dawn.

I have played the beta and if the retail version is anything like it then there are some framerate issues. It was very rare (I probably played around 20 hours of the beta and it happened 2 times) but it does happen

when it did happen it was really bad. I'm not worried about it because it happens so rarely and if it didn't ruin my time then, I doubt it will now

hopefully they will fix it with an update but if they don't I will be ok

But if it drops in the 30ish area with fps, this is still a problem for a game that is running a ten year old engine and mid level textures. Lets be real people this game is not a Halo or a Mass Effect by any means. Its not a game changer, like the media likes to portray. Just remember those reports about MS paying some of these media outlets to show the X1 in a positive light.

Beta frame-rate dipped all over the place on my 8core "Titan" GPU PC. It's what happens when you take a first release game from a "new" studio that's was originally made to run on an old PowerPC box and later PC and an XBO.
FlyingFoxy  +   196d ago
Not to mention Titan is so overpriced when an r9 290 matches it in most game benchmark tests.
Volkama  +   196d ago
On the AMD side of the fence Titanfall performance was pretty much flawless.

nVidia released a new driver yesterday with optimisations for Titanfall, I'd be very surprised if you don't get a solid 60fps.

On-topic, I don't think that frame drops on the console version are a hugh problem if they're infrequent, but screen tearing would bug the hell out of me. Can't say I noticed these problems myself on the beta, but I only really played through the tutorial area before diving into the PC version.

Riddle me this. Why is it that every single time someone disagrees the person has to be a -insert brand- fanboy...? Grow up already and realise that there is people who spent money and expect value in return on both ends of the coin. We all know what a fanboy look like..

I myself do not own the Xbox One but I keep my eyes open for that one system seller at all times, and that is why I´m here on this article making my own decision on whether or not this is factual cause I´m highly interested in general and your statement would have been more solid if the mid part was left out.

Now for the disclaimer. If I invest on this game and I experience what this and many other articles/Xbox One owners claim cause you´re saying other wise... I must hunt you down.

Isn't this the same site that said Thief's fps was higher on Xbox One? Then digital foundry published their analysis and it turns out that Xbox One's is worse than PS4's?

Just saying. Anyway, kotaku and giantbomb both reported on this. Polygon has noted it too, saying there's been lots of screen tearing.

Lukas_Japonicus  +   196d ago
It did have fps problems, i played it too. People keep saying "there weren't any fps drops", but that's just because YOU didn't notice them. There were dips. The Eurogamer article from earlier today had an interview with one of the guys from Respawn and even he said the final build is not 60fps locked. I find it a little disappointing that it still has framerate issues.

Respawn said framerate is king, those are their words, i know the frame dips don't happen all the time and don't last for very long when they do happen, but they should have done everything in their power to make sure the game ran at a locked...or very close to locked 60fps.

"Framerate is king". Please, just drop the res to 720p and give us more frames.

IF Directx12 and all its features are coming to x box 1, the only logical conclusion is the x box 1 is not hitting the right performance. Its missing stuff vital to run the console great.

How many do overs does one give someone who keeps failing when promising the world? All we heard from the beginning was "The power of the cloud" now DX12.....lets' s not forget the whole 180 debacle, come on now enough is enough. I played COD this weekend with the xb live free weekend and coming from playing Ghosts which is far from great on any console but compared the the PS4 version was quite underwhelming on the one..resolution does matter and the people who say it doesn't, are the same people who say size doesn't matter either. ANY WHO I shall see for myself tomorrow when I pick my copy up and play it for myself.

Just stop talking. Enough is enough. The XB1 will never match the PS4 in the power/graphics department. Period. End of story.

DX12? You act like Sony doesn't have it's own version of that and tiled resources. It's not going to save the day for XB1. Deal with it, move on and go play the games.

if that is the case then apparently everyone is lying. Must be some big conspiracy.

So The Last of Us gets general praise across the board and is justifiably a good game as a result.

Titanfall gets great scores across the board but there must be a cover-up going on.

Your comparing the reviews of the Last of Us to Titanfall.....not even in the same league buddy. Last of Us is a game you can proudly say "knocked reviews out of the park".

I don't think it got anything lower then an 8 except for that god awful, badly written review from Polygon.

People are acting on here though that it's been getting the same kind of perfect scores when it hasn't. Besides in the Last of Us was there any struggles with frame rates or other bad problems?

U know it's really sad at this point that it cannot even handle a 792P with an old engine it uses 4 it to be 60FPS at 792P. I feel like it's a xbox 360 1.5 with slightly better specs and a improved kenect and that's it. I feel like Wii u is doing a much better job at 1080P at 60FPS then X1 is hell I think they r more even in specs then X1 is with PS4. I hope MS improves it's tools and so on as I would hate that I spend 500$ That wii u does a much better job in 1080PS on 60FPS for less money hell PS4 is less as well.

Titanfall is not a brand new game in development its been worked on for years and now releasing on x box 1.

Microsoft only released there new SDK recently, so realistically Respawn was still working with the old code up till a month ago so they couldn't tweak or change the game all that much.

After launch an update or patch of the resolution is more likely.

Lukas i bet by the summer of this year. Resolution will not matter. Directx12 is a game changer and if Microsoft announces it for x box 1 sorry the x box 1 GPU isn't weak far from it.

Like i said Respawn had no time to fix the frame rate or resolution its been set in stone for months. After launch expect frame rate improvements and resolution improvements.

Slayer@ this is for you have no bubbles.

Microsoft has delivered the cloud to gamers not sure why you think they haven't?

Microsoft did not promise imaginary stuff.

They said cloud will deliver dedicated servers, true. Microsoft Titanfall and Forza use them.

Cloud computing, true Microsoft uses the cloud for AI.

Cloud storage, true.

The only thing not yet seen is graphics been done on the cloud. But Microsoft has only launched a few months ago give them time.

I would rather they focus on framerate before res, wouldn't you?

Even if it takes a drop to 720p, i would take it for better frames.

" After launch expect frame rate improvements and resolution improvements."

I hope so, because in a game like this, i NEED 60fps.

for a game of this nature, yes. While Call of Duty was never a spectacle to look at, you always had to appreciate the silky smooth framerates it offered.
Neonridr  +   196d ago
"What makes this particularly alarming is that the Xbox One version runs at a 792p resolution. It's not much more demanding than 720p, the resolution the Xbox 360 was able to run games like Call of Duty at during last gen without missing a beat."

What this person fails to recognize is there is so much more going on with Titanfall than Call of Duty is bringing to the table so you can't just compare resolutions. That's like saying that BF4 and CoD on Xbox One are both the same because they are both 720p. Not even close.
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   196d ago
True.

Most people only think Graphics and Resolution but forget the demands that complex AI has on a rig

The same goes for the projected gameplay of
"Watch Dogs".
"Watch Dogs" will need to have so much data running in the background and at the ready in order to create the vision that they want.
mcarsehat  +   196d ago
most gamers think they know games enough to throw any old opinion out and be right because they say they are.

In most of the awards, Battlefield 4 got BEST GRAPHICS. This wasn't because they had better textures and lighting than any other game because if that was how it was judged, Ryse: Son of rome or killzone: shadow fall would have won.

It got the awards because you had 64 people running on a console amidst an array of gunfights, dynamic map changes, explosions and vehicle use without any earth shattering problems.

Worse textures - worse lighting - not 1080p but still won best graphics over those that were.
People need to understand how game graphics are judged or the same articles will appear time and time again.

Just one question, is anyone actually saddened by this news or does everyone WANT titanfall to have problems?
