Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Targeting 60FPS, Single-Player Might Be Lower
"Solid frame rate is the most important thing."
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End developer Naughty Dog has offered new insight into the frame rate for the upcoming action-adventure game.
Speaking with GameSpot, lead designer Kurt Margenau said Naughty Dog is targeting 60fps for the game's multiplayer mode, though he wouldn't commit to a figure for the single-player campaign.
"If you look at the demo, and just how much is happening on the screen...physics...It's insane," Margenau said about the new single-player Uncharted 4 demo from E3.

Naughty Dog said previously that getting Uncharted 4 to run at 60fps has been "really f**king hard." That doesn't mean it won't happen, and with the game now scheduled to launch in 2016 instead of 2015, Naughty Dog would conceivably have more time to perform additional optimizations.
But one thing is for sure: Naughty Dog wants to do what's best for Uncharted 4, even if that means a frame rate below 60fps.
"We want Uncharted to look like the best game we can possibly make," Margenau said. "Solid frame rate is the most important thing; that it's consistent. But in multiplayer, we are targeting 60fps still. So we know how it feels on the stick to have [60fps] for a multiplayer game, to have that responsiveness."
In terms of resolution, Uncharted 4 will be 1080p.
