I'm not a big fan of posting from other sites but it seems worthy if it's true. From NeoGAF. Take it for what you will.

Map: Mall Gametype: Warzone Round 1: Capture and Hold Round 2: Kills


I'll get the big one out of the way: the framerate is highly variable right now. I'd estimate the range was 20 to 60 depending on where in the map I was and what kind of action was happening. Most of the time it seemed to stay at 30. There's severe aliasing issues and horrible dithering on all foliage. Worse than Witcher 2 shadow dithering.
The game itself was very fun, though a bit more fast paced than I expected. Kill time is still fairly long but it's kind of run and gun. I was a bit thrown off by the controls since it now uses the triggers.


The DS4 feels amazing. It's got this really tight grip feeling that I've never felt in another controller. My headphones were kinda quiet so I couldn't really judge the sound. I'm not a big fan of posting from other sites but it seems worthy if it's true. From NeoGAF.

It couldn't possibly be an early build or something.

I though it would be better to hear from an actual gamer and not some website editor playing with Sony's or MS money in his pocket. Of course the build is not final but that doesn't stop cows for finding flaws in other X1 builds.

I'd just like to point out that this isn't the first time we've heard that. I remember people saying that the fps only really stayed at 60fps when they were looking up at the sky in the game. I would expect that it's simply kinks that need to be worked out before the game ships.

I would've been surprised if the launch games didn't suffer from some sort of frame rate issues during development and this goes for both systems.

GG saying that the MP is 60fps to me doesn't sound like it's locked down at that. Sounds more like it can get up to 60 fps but during hectic scenes it can tank

Also you should have "Impressions" or something in the title. It sounds like there is a video to watch when there isn't

sorry for the impressions foul up. I def agree it wont be locked at 60fps but if it is dipping down into the 20s then I don't think that is something that will be worked out in two months, unless a miracle happens.

I think a LOT of kinks will be fixed by launch but it won't be a completely locked down 60fps MP game. Doesn't sound like it will be anyway, which would be disappointing cos that's what I was thinking of. I'd much rather have it locked at 30 than bouncing from 30 to 60

Guerrilla did say it was a "soft 60fps". Well, that's a very soft 60fps indeed. Personally I would prefer a solid 30fps over a wildly swinging framerate.

Sounds like it was overhyped by the cows, probably gonna have a horrible framerate come launch, but this is the fault of the PS4, not the dev.


You get what you pay for, underpowered console compared to PCs.


This is why BF4 is probably choosing to stay around 720p at medium settings.

Probably panics everytime MS does a 180 and Sony does nothing, and cries about "cancelling" typical cow behavior.

It's probably a build they've been demoing for awhile. A stable build that doesn't crash. Could be months old. Better to show off something you know works than have the demo crash halfway through.

It'll probably improve by launch but I don't expect it to be 60FPS all the time.

Really doubt GG would be dumb enough to let the release version's framerate vary so wildly. If it's really that bad I imagine they'll at worst work it out to not go lower than 30 or higher at minimum. Glad to hear the actual gameplay is getting praise, after 3 I was kind of worried about that. They got so many things right with 2 that going to 3 afterwards was just painful.

While I agree, I hear stories from KZ3 and it's horrendous framerate in Multiplayer, can anyone confirm that?

Think I'm finally going to pre-order this.  My only hesitance is that it may conflict with my Destiny time but it looks too promising to pass on.

I'm gonna pre order it on PC, i hope it comes out at the same time as the Xbox 360/Xbox one version. Titanfall in 1080p/1440p is gonna be amazing.

They could have shown an old build which might be the reason why the framerate was unstable. Obviously I could be wrong

I personally do think its an issue. A shooter without a SP mode an incomplete game to me.
