Ivory Tower and Ubisoft Reflections are working on The Crew which will take the racing genre into a new direction. Instead of limiting the player to a track, the developers have opened up the entire United States for the player.
Bit of a shame, racing games really do benefit from 60fps but I supposed I would rather have the game run smoother over all then struggle with 60fps!
Well, 60fps is a must for linear racers. The Crew is a massive open world role playing car game. I am really happy with this hitting 1080p and 30fps.
"60fps is a must for linear racers." No, it's really not. Nice, sure. A necessity? Hardly. Depends on the whole package.
NFS rivals is 1080p/30fps and it looks great and plays fine
seems there wont be much open-world games with 60fps.
Metal gear is the only one I have seen so far.
This is pretty much expected given that its an openworld game. The game still looks really good despite not being 60fps.
Personally i'd be happier with sub 1080 and a locked 60 fps, Driving games pretty much demand it.
I agree with you! drop the resolution down to 900p and push for a solid 60fps.
it should have an option for that
Totally agree. 30fps is a racing game is a deal breaker. Seriously WTF.
At least they did not use the, "It was a design decision" excuse.
Haha yeah. "We're going for the filmic look".. best Spin ever
This gen is about struggle next gen will be real 1080p and 60fps.
"PS5 struggling with [email protected]?"
Id prefer a few less effects that im likely not going to notice while driving. At least put the options in for me to lower some effects to attain 1080p 60fps. its the
changing visual options to suit YOUR Gaming preferences? Now why would a console game wanna have features that those elitist PC Gamers have?
True enough, my bad :)
Enjoy your next gen 30 frames peasants
There's never going to be a generation of gaming that doesn't have 30fps games. I know this because nothing has infinite power. As the games get more complicated, the framerate must be dropped down lower... unless you think games don't need to get any better than what we have now. Even if they come out with the PS5 with 16GB of RAM, with 12 CPUs and 4 video cards, there will always be room for improvement and developers will find a way to use every last little bit of that power and even go beyond it's limits and will have to drop the frame rate to display what they set out to achieve. Every console was very powerful at one time yet every console had 30fps games. Figure that one out. Sure, there's always a 60fps game here and there, but they don't look nearly as nice as the 30fps games.
What would you prefer for this very game? Press AGREE for 1080p @ 30FPS Press DISAGREE for 720p @ 60FPS
1080p/30fps! if they can get the up to their status of how they want it to be, then that's all it matters. Sure 1080p/60fps sounds great, but if they were to get at 60fps, then they'll have scale back on some stuff. Maybe when dev tools get stronger for these systems, maybe they can get it at 60fps and release it as an update. I'll say this, i'm truly excited to play this game, and i don't care what other ppl say! i'm going to have a blast racing across the united states with my friends, starting up police chase with friends, and leave all the nay-sayers behind. As long as the game looks great and have no frame drops, that all it matters! Holla! *throws the mic*
Cool look forward to seeing and playing it , looks fun.
I think it is better to choose 30fps for open world racers, The same happened with FH2 and that is 1080p @30fps
Dat Burnout Paradise tho...
After Watchdogs' awful driving mechanics I'm not holding out much hope for this! Especially after the inevitable downgrade too!!
