The Order: 1886 will run in full 1080p but at only 30 frames per second, not the much desired next generation sweet spot of 1080p/60fps, developer Ready at Dawn has revealed.
The decision to run at only 30fps was made to ensure spectacular visuals could be created.
"Currently we do not aim [for] 60 frames per second," Ready at Dawn boss Ru Weerasuriya told German gaming website Play3 in a interview which has since been taken offline. "In a first person shooter that [surely] makes sense. Also fighting games are undoubtedly predestined for 60 frames. But for us, the cinematic experience is in the foreground [basically focus] – presented in full HD 1080p. In favour of spectacular effects and the highest resolution we restrict ourselves to a fluid 30 frames per second."
Sony's other upcoming first-party title, inFamous Second Son, also renders at 1080p and 30fps, as does the campaign mode of launch title Killzone: Shadow Fall, jumping to 60fps in multiplayer.
