You can count on Destiny 2 to have a locked 30fps frame-rate.
Thanks to Bungie allowing attendees at last week’s Destiny 2 reveal event to capture gameplay, we came out of the event with a good idea about what the sequel is going to offer.
Apart from demonstrating Bungie’s confidence in the build, it offered fans a wide selection of footage showing the three classes playing the strike, and the new Crucible mode. Digital Foundry, took this opportunity to analyse this build of the game to see how it compares to the original.
The tech outlet captured footage from a PS4 Pro, and noticed refined particle effects and motion blur, with the depth-of-field effect relying on a more modern bokeh effect. Bungie is not yet saying what resolution PS4 Pro will run at, whether it’s a full 4K buffer or 1440p/1800p upscaled.
As far as performance, the original Destiny had a 30fps lock in almost all situations, and from the footage captured so far of Destiny 2, the sequel appears to continue this trend with an unwavering 30fps lock.
Towards the end of the video, we get to see a representation of how a 60fps version of Destiny would run with the help of interpolation techniques. It looks very smooth and it’s really a shame that it’ll only be reserved for PC.
Destiny 2 is out September 8 on PS4, and Xbox One. The PC version remains without a release date.
