Ubisoft has confirmed that its upcoming racer The Crew will be locked at 30fps on the PS4 and Xbox One, while PC players will have the option to toggle between 30fps or 60fps. The news comes from a thread on the Ubisoft forums when it was discovered that originally the PC version would also have had the lock in place, sparking an outcry from PC gamers. The original statement is below.
The final game will run in 1080p with 30 frames per second on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, and will support up to 5760*1080p on PC for triple screen set-ups. Right now the team is focusing on providing an optimal experience for all players. You can unlock it in the file you’ve found, but it may affect the game’s performances. Your call.
After the backlash with many forum goers expressing they would cancel their PC pre-orders due to the lock Ubisoft has since reversed that decision with the latest update reading.
Latest official update: we will offer the option to play with either 60 frames per second or 30 frames per second on PC at launch.
Console players will not be able to choose between the two as otherwise the The Crew won’t run at its optimal level, at least according to Ubisoft.
