Mass Effect: Andromeda Is 30 FPS on PS4 and PS4 Pro

There won't be a frame rate difference, EA confirms.


Mass Effect: Andromeda will run at 30 FPS across both PlayStation 4 and the new PlayStation 4 Pro.

Producer Fabrice Condominas shared the detail in an interview with GameSpot this evening at the PlayStation Meeting. The PS4 Pro is more powerful than the existing model. It is in theory capable of delivering higher frame rates, but that won't be the case here, apparently.

It's also worth noting that what we saw of Andromeda today was a pre-alpha build, so it's possible optimization efforts in the future could lead to better performance.

Earlier in the evening, Jason Connell of Sucker Punch Productions told GameSpot during a roundtable interview that Infamous: Second Son and First Light's PS4 Pro versions will run at the same frame rate as the standard PS4 versions.

Higher frame rates for multiplayer games specifically can make a difference for gameplay. It remains to be seen, however, if Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Battlefield 1's PS4 Pro editions will run at a higher frame rate than their standard edition cousins.

The PS4 Pro launches in November for $400. Next week, Sony will launch the PS4 Slim, priced at $300.
