And another one bites the dust: Need For Speed: The Run is locked at 30fps

DSOGaming writes: "I seriously don’t understand developers these days. After Rockstar’s adventure game, here comes another one that is locked at 30fps. And get this right; this is a racing game. Yeap, Electronic Arts’ and Black Box’s highly anticipated Need For Speed: The Run is locked at 30fps. L.A. Noire can get away with this limit as it’s a slow paced adventure game but what were Black Box thinking? This is simply unacceptable." (Need For Speed: The Run, PC)

If it's locked at - without dropping - then 30 fps is going to be all right. Ferrari challenge did it. Okay this is a little more intense though

PC games should not have any kind of fps limitation

Shame on EA

Maybe its due to story line cut scenes being recorded @ 30fps just like LA Noir did

Gamers are all whiny little bitches. Play the damn game or don't.

Came here to post this. Wah wah wah, this isn't acceptable, it should be 60fps even though I don't know anything about videogame development.

You don't need to know anything about game development.

If games from the 1990s can run at more than 30 frames per second, then games from today should be able to run at more than 30 frames per second.

What possible technical reason do they have for locking the framerate on the PC version other than, "We're too lazy to change the code for the PC version. This game is crap and we're moving on to another sequel."

I wouldn't play a racing game at 30FPS if you paid me. Slooow...

30 FPS isn't that bad guys...

Yes it is, especially for a racing game. Besides, I bought a gaming PC so I could run games at 60FPS or higher and not to be limited by some useless developer.

If you think 30 fps is alright, that's good for you. But that's unacceptable to me, especially in a racing game.

The author is correct, it's a very disturbing trend this gen. Before I upgraded my pc, I would lower graphics settings intentionally to get higher frame rates. And now that I have a 120hz monitor, I'm here to tell you, if you pair that with 120+ fps you would realize just how unacceptable 30fps on anything is.

That's EAs motto. 30 Frames Per Second for all their games.
FPS/Racer/etc doesn't matter.
Halochampian  +   1229d ago
and what fps would you be referring to?

another frostbite 2 engine game locked at 30fps
