UFC runs at 1080p, 30FPS on PS4 & Xbox One, director confirms

UFC is now in the hands of EA Sports studio EA Canada, and creative director Brian Hayes has confirmed that the game will run at 30FPS, due to the "discernible" difference seen in 60FPS.

Speaking with Gaming Bolt, Hayes said, "UFC is running at 1080p. The game sim is running at 60 FPS, but rendering at 30 FPS with motion blur.

"From prior experience working on Fight Night Round 4 and Fight Night Champion, which rendered at 60 and 30 FPS respectively, we discovered that 60 FPS didn't have a hugely beneficial impact on gameplay, but motion blur had an enormous impact on visual quality.

"In fact, when we focus tested the two, the majority of people preferred the 30FPS experience with motion blur. So, 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."

Would you prefer the game's grunt go towards that 60FPS 'sweet spot', or are you happy for it to be used in enhancing other aspects of the game.

Speaking of which, UFC now features female combatants, a move that has seen a varied reaction from all quarters. What do you think?
