EA Sports UFC is 1080p and 30FPS on PS4 and Xbox One

Tuesday, 5th November 2013 22:07 GMT By Mike Irving

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.

Thanks, IGN.

    @4 @5

    What baffles me is when they acknowledge it, then leave both posts up anyway!?

    More hits I guess.

    @2 Hey there! Glad you like it ^^

    As for the double posts… Every gaming news website should have an archive were every finished news can be found. Or you can find it easily in the program used for writing the news. At least that’s what we do in our little news section.

    I think #6 is right. More hits and comments. But anyway… I just made an account yesterday. Great website with tons of great news! Just the lack of moderation is a bit annoying VG247! You need a few moderators over here!

    Cheers! :)

    If only you knew. You’re still a fragile virgin here, you’ve seen nothing yet. You’ve been warned.

    Some of the flamewars are quite funny though.

    Next gen just keeps getting better and better lol. The games struggle to do 1080p at 60fps in 2013 and these systems are meant to last use for another 8 years lol

    Launch games struggle to exploit system hardware. News at 11.

    just like early current gen, they’ve probably only tapped 20% of the power.

    It seems like people forgot how the first games of a new generation actually looked like in the past. Things will only get better.

    I thought that the whole point of using a PC-like architecture was so that they could easily tap into the machine’s power.

    I hate it when people brings up examples from past generations. We’re in the eighth generation already and some 3rd party developers are still having a ridiculously slow start.
