Report: Need For Speed: Rivals Is Locked At 30FPS On The PC

DSOGaming writes: "A couple of months ago, we posted a story regarding the framerate of Need For Speed Rivals PC. As the development team noted back then, all versions of the game would be locked at 30fps. However, last month TeamVVV claimed that the framerate on the PC version of Need For Speed: Rivals was unlocked. Well, it appears that’s not the case."

Ahh tanks for telling us, now i know im not gonna buy that game lol

Locked at 30fps OMG that's such a GREAT use of my PC's power.

Do I buy NFS:R just to have fun ripping up files to unlock the frame rate or do I just say "Screw this CRAP"

Screw this Crap and Go Download Project CARS if you got a PC!

*Not worth my time opening up a config file in Notepad and changing the parameters*

SirDjss1797d ago

Yea mate, if we are lucky we could change it in config, but not all games can be fiddled with. I quess we just have to cross our fingers it will work :) cant these publishers learn that pc gamers need these settings, and a freaking fov slider ffs. No need for a fov slider in a racing game though lol

This is PC.. No doubt there will be a mod within 2 days of launch to unlock the frame rate for those who want it. PC isn't restricted like consoles.

ABizzel11797d ago

This is going to get ugly.

Why on earth would you lock framerate on the PC version. It's time to start cracking this game wide open.

Another reason not to purchase the game.

EA and Ubisoft are sh*t companies to PC gamers.

DeadlyFire1797d ago

EA and Ubisoft look at PC and say we will just port to it for a quick buck. If its capped at any fps 30fps or regardless on PC. Then its 95% likely that it is just the console version slid straight over to the PC.

HammadTheBeast1797d ago

I don't understand, why the hell would they lock the FPS, IN A RACING GAME, on the PC which has more than enough power, and is basically built for options?

Gster1797d ago

I would take this story with a pinch of salt tbh. Why on earth would ea lock their game to 30fps on pc, when they know that the majority of gaming pc's would be well capable of handling this in excess of 60fps. I would imagine high end cards would easily be able to do 120fps @1080p on max settings. EA are not stupid, they know this would potentially lose them thousands of buyers because guys with mid to high end rigs won't buy a game that's gonna limit the performance of their rig (just look at the comments).

People buy gaming pc's with good graphics cards to get the most out of their gaming experience by having that extra performance when they're playing games. The reason why it's capped on ps4 and xb1 is for stability issues, and so as the frames don't drop below the consistent 30fps that's gauranteed. This would not be an issue on gaming pc's as most of them would perform at an average 60fps and higher with little effort. Ea are not gonna shoot themselves in the foot by discouraging people with gaming rigs from buying nfs r because of a performance limit.

That would be all well and good, but I think you're forgetting about Need For Speed: The Run. Locked at 30fps on PC for similar reasons as Rivals.

Not this same shit again:@

Marcello1797d ago (Edited 1797d ago )

Yep & also no hoodcam, just like last years NFS. I think EA are hoodcamphobic althou that said they are also good game phobic aswell.

Oh & btw i have played Rivals & its sh!t, Hot Pursuit was much better.

firefly691797d ago (Edited 1797d ago )

Hot Pursuit 2 is not only better but looks much better too.Frankly the frostbite engine only looks good on BF 3 and 4 games because on other games it looks crap.

dcj05241797d ago

Firefly I sgree that Hot Pursuit 2 plays better but I think your eyes need some serious work if you think it looks better.

cabbitwithscissors1797d ago

Why do they need to lock frames on the PC platform ?

HammadTheBeast1797d ago

It's probably a direct port off the console versions, which are locked at 30 fps, and they don't want to waste time or money optimizing the PC version.

DeadlyFire1797d ago (Edited 1797d ago )

Typically you don't really on any PC game. Console games on the other hand you do. So what does that tell you about this game. PORTED 100%. It wouldn't surprise me to see XB/PS button logos in the game on PC.

--Onilink--1797d ago

nothing that probably cant be fixed by opening the config file with the notepad and changing a value
