Bethesda updated Fallout 4 specs.
Who'd have thunk it.
It was just an incorrect statement from Howard.
Even if it was it wouldn't matter. They tried doing that with Dead Rising 3 on PC. It takes all of 60 seconds to unlock it, lol.
Yea, but it runs like shit at 60fps because they didn't optimize it for it to be 60fps.
^^That makes no sense. And it did in fact run just fine.
I dont think it will take a lot to reach 60fps on this game as it isnt as graphic intensive as other new games like GTA V so most people should be running it at a smooth 60fps
Even if by some odd horrible joke it was locked at 30FPS for PC. It would literally take some minutes to fix it, announce it, tweak it, and then finally release it by the end of the release day. This is the beauty of PC.
Here's a thought. Just sit, fire up your PC, ps4 or xbone, and don't think about FPS and have fun in the world of fallout. There will be so much to do, you won't even think about FPS.
Thats what I do with Witcher 3 on PC I have settings on high and hairworks on looks smooth to me and highly playable, my FPS counter says "don't care" :D The only game I ever worried about FPS was Quake 3 back in the day as there were certain jumps etc. that could only be made at 125 FPS.
Playing at 30fps on PC with mouse and keyboard is horrible experience... Sure it is good enough with gamepad, but 30fps WILL bother you if you use mouse.
I would agree, but when you have a 120/240hz monitor and your FPS are locked at 30fps it is VERY noticeable and will make the game seem like it is lagging and choppy.
FPS is kinda important to enjoying the gameplay... resolution not so much...
Not really, there is hardly any difference between 30 and 60 unless you are a entitled brat who over analysis everything. Higher than that it's noticable but the average gamer doesn't have a pc that goes that gets max everything.
@Summon75 Some games in first person @ 30fps like Far Cry gives me headache. Does that make me a entitled brat who over analysis everything?
Summons the differnce is very massive
@Summons75 couple years ago, I was playing Dead Space 2 on PC and I turned on V-synch on because of awful screen tear and for the first 3 hours I was playing the game in 30fps because Vsynch locks it at that. I found out that i was meant to turn it on from the Nvidia control panel and not the game itself, it unlocked 60fps and the whole game changed, it was so smooth I had no idea what I was subjecting myself to... it was then I realised why people make Framerates a priority... don't take my word for it though, you need to see it... it's undeniable.
@Summons75 I can instantly tell the difference between 30fps and 60fps with out any problem. 30fps in unplayable for me and gives me a headache 60fps is the lowest for me and if having me having standards make me entitled so be it.
Of course not, I was playing fallout 3/Vegas on 3 screens (1080p *3) years ago , why would fallout 4 run at lower resolution ?
Resolution isn't necessarily the issue here. It was the 30fps on all platforms (including PC ) that was being called into question.
Well, I don't have a beast rig and judging by the 1080p/30fps on both consoles, this can only mean one thing for me. The PC requirements are not too extreme. I hope I can achieve at least 1080p/60fps.
Come on at least 45 fps on the PS4, the XBone is holding up progress. Screw parity!
Hey can you describe the smell of the inside of your colon? Because you are pretty far up there.
I can't unfortunately :(
And ps4 is holding up the progress for pc, screw your parity.
How would you like your 45fps served? With screen tear or with stutter?
Both please :)
Its a bit of a shame that these new consoles cant even run fallout at 60fps
The 30 fps really isn't that bad of a deal for an open-world RPG. It's not like there's any online or God of War level craziness going on at all times.
I dont ever remember a PC game not being able to run over 30fps. Even with crappy hardware, if you had low settings you could alwyas get over 30fps. I dont even know how this ever became an issue with PC. Running games at 60FPS has been an option for so long now as monitors were pretty much always 60hz which lets you play at 60fps or below.
Nothing is locked on PC, not as long as the platform has the support of modding community. Even if they ddid it at retail, modders would come up with a solution within hours after its release, just like they did with Dark Souls 2 on PC.
Of course. I don't know why people assumed PC would get bumped down. I seriously doubt Bethesda would ever try to rip off their main audience which primarily are on PC. EA maybe. Bethesda. No. Just no. Don't see it happening.
Aww,i was hoping for a more cinematic experience,eh ubi!!..yuk,yuk
The people who thought PC would be locked at 30 couldn't have been playing games very long.
