EA has confirmed that EA Sports UFC will run at 1080p and render at 30 frames per second on the Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
In an interview with Gaming Bolt, EA Canada Creative Director, Brian Hayes, said that in previous projects, 60FPS “didn’t have a hugely beneficial impact on gameplay.” In fact, during focus-tests the team discovered that more players actually preferred the experience when the game ran at 30FPS with motion blur.
“As opposed to arbitrarily jumping back to 60 FPS for little discernible benefit, we decided to put those resources towards improving the visual presentation of the game in other ways,” said Hayes.
This comes after some outcry from gamers about the resolution of next-gen games.
EA Sports UFC is currently expected to release on May 5, 2014 on Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
