The PlayStation 4 exclusive The Order: 1886 will run at just 30 frames per second but will be displayed at a crisp 1080p.
The news comes from studio head Ru Weerasuriya who revealed the details in an interview with Play3 stating:
Currently we do not aim [for] 60 frames per second. 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.
It’s a shame that we still have to compromise when it comes to the technical details, if the game can maintain a solid 30 frames then it should still be a smooth experience.
