With EA announcing EA Sports UFC 2 just last month, more details seem to be trickling out. While it’s hard to argue how good the game looks on EA’s Ignite Engine, fans hoping or wishing the game would run at 1080p resolution and 60 frames-per-second will be disappointed to know that the developer chose 30fps instead.
In an interview with GamingBolt, Creative Director Brian Hayes confirmed that the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of EA Sports UFC 2 will run at 1080p/30fps with motion blur, since testing claims 60fps “doesn’t have a hugely beneficial impact.”
The game runs at 1080p, and renders at 30fps with motion blur…We’ve found that going to 60fps doesn’t have a hugely beneficial impact, and people in testing have told us that the game actually looks better at 30fps with motion blur.
Is 60fps always better? Maybe for first-person shooters, but for sports games? That might be open to debate.
Are you OK with EA’s decision on this for EA Sports UFC 2? Or should they try and aim for 1080p/60fps for all its games?
EA Sports UFC 2 will hit store shelves in Spring 2016.
