Ubisoft Pushing To Let PC Gamers Enjoy The Crew At 60fps

PC gamers looking forward to Ubisoft’s The Crew have been reassured that the game, when it's released in full at the start of December, will run at 60fps. The closed Beta on PC was released running locked at 30fps but players were able to get around this with a bit of effort. If all goes to plan there should be no tinkering needed at all when the full game arrives.

The news that Ubisoft are actively working toward making the more desired 60fps a reality for PC petrolheads goes some way to further calm concerns raised from Ubisoft developer's comments that the industry as a whole was moving towards a 30fps standard, whilst another caused problems claiming that Assassins Creed: Unity had been limited on the PS4 to keep in line with Xbox One. Since those comments Ubisoft has come out with a series of press releases that all seem to be geared toward emphasising that the company develops games towards the maximum specifications they can be.

Ultimately, it will largely come down to what hardware players will be using whether they run the game at at 60fps or 30fps. Fans will be pleased to hear that Ubisoft haven't locked the game at 30fps, a lesson learnt perhaps from the debacle that was Need For Speed: Rivals last year. EA locked the frame rate at 30fps and unlocking it could cause some unusual effects, luckily a full 60fps workaround was revealed.

The Crew will also be releasing on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Xbox 360 but will run locked at 30fps, no doubt necessary thanks to huge open-world without a loading screen in sight. Another sign for many PC gamers of the hardware superiority that high-end PCs already have over its console brethren early in their lifespan.

Just over a month remains until The Crew is released and Ubisoft teased eager fans yesterday with the release of a new trailer showing off the range of customisation options that will be available to players. The Crew will be released on December 2 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Ubisoft won't stop PC gamers from Running The Crew at 60 FPS...


Ubisoft WILL stop PC gamers from:
... Using a digital distribution method OTHER than uPlay
... Mapping functions to whatever keys they want
... Supporting mice with more than 3 keys
... Providing standard multiplayer features
... Getting any form of post-release support for the game
... yadda yadda yadda

I read an article on another website that Ubisoft, Microsoft and Sony are demanding a 30FPS Lock on all PC releases. If this is true, I am boycotting Ubisoft as an angry PC gamer because of their anti-consumerist and anti-development policies. Sony and Microsoft were there long ago.

things are bit more business,
Microsoft and Sony have special deal and pay good money to favor their consoles ahead of PCs - I totally understand it, because if you want to sell a device which is non-profitable itself then you need games to earn money at :P

Still, 60 fps is usually good enough, it's smooth and all. Locking it to 30 would make things laggy sometimes because at 30 fps you just don't have enough sometimes. (Especially when there's a lot of particles flying around)

It's because a few days ago Ubisoft claimed that 30 FPS was the new industry standard, this just proves they were talking utter BS, the truth was that they don't want PC's to make "Next Gen" consoles look bad and so played down the importance of FPS :)

Or it could be their excuse for those poor optimizations they tend to do.

I tried the Beta and unlocked it myself, game ran REALLY well at 60 FPS, it would take a monumental F%*K UP by Ubisoft to mess this one up for us PC gamers haha :)

I just dont get it how they can even consider that 30 fps. Evil within was horrible at 30 i made shortcut that removes the cap and the whole game feels so good now.

I got excatly 30 fps before unlocking and it was choppy maybe with game pad but definitely not good with a mouse and keyboard. Otherwise the game is damn awesome last time i played so good survival horror it was 2005 and RE4.

Yeah I'm using a controller, most PC ported games I find to work better with a controller, The Evil Within is still a great game despite its flaws, up there if the best of Resi and Silent Hills :)
