Naughty Dog’s Bruce Straley has been chatting to EDGE magazine about Uncharted 4, more specifically about how the game will run on consoles when it releases. In this interview it was confirmed that the demo from last month, which you can watch above, was locked at 30fps, though the game itself is capable of running higher. Apparently the debug station at PlayStation Experience showed the game hitting 37fps.
The statement Bruce Straley made was:
“We’re going to do whatever it takes to make the game we want to make. If it means we could go for 60 but lose something that would really impact the player’s experience, then it’s our choice as developers to say, ‘Well, we’re going to go for the experience over the 60 frames.'”
I do wonder if Uncharted 4 will have the same option as The Last Of Us: Remastered where players can choose to lock the game at 30fps, or to let it run naturally. Of course we don’t know yet if Naughty Dog will put that in, but it would make sense so there is a choice for players to decide how they experience Drake’s latest adventure.
