Naughty Dog Dev Arne Meyer confirmed in the graphical settings there is an optional framerate lock.

 

Personally I'm glad, if a game regularly drops from 60 to 40ish it can produce a horrible judder, like the one present in Killzone and Tomb Raider at times. I always had the FPS lock enabled on Killzone after they introduced it.

This is good news. I notice the FPS Drop in Killzone now that I have more time to play it on multiplayer. I thought it was my HDMI cable or my receiver, but everything was switched out and same thing. Googled it and saw people reporting issues. Dropped down to 720 on PS4 and worked great. So thats when I figured it was the FPS dropping.

 

I didn't know a FPS Lock option exists on console let alone kill zone. Time to google!

I know one exists on Killzone, and to me it makes the whole experience smoother. I'd take a consistent 30 over 60 constantly dropping to high 30's low 40's any day.

 

 

It was added in with an update.

It should either run at 30fps or 60fps. Users shouldn't have to change options like that just to ensure a consistent playing experience. Really I don't understand how 30fps can be considered acceptable in this day and age but that's more a limitation of modern consoles.

Depends on the game, most 3rd person / action / adventure are fine at 30fps, even on PC.

It's online fps where 60fps can be critical.

As I said, I don't consider 30fps acceptable so I strongly disagree.

That's some pretty high standards you have there.

Dips don't sound bad if Corrinne is telling the truth

Possible option was added when the framerate was shakier.

I doubt the limiter would have been added if it was a consistent 60fps. There would literally be no reason for it.

I find it kind of silly that they are adding graphics options like this into a console game to begin with.  Just make it run solid at 60fps or lock it to 30fps.  Leave editing the graphics options to the PC where hardware is not the same for every PC.

Shuhei and ND are joking about it on Twitter as well

Possible its only even there to show the difference between the PS3 and PS4 versions?

If they are telling the truth and it's just for the purists then that's actually kind of cool.

Good option to have, it made a world of difference in Killzone Shadowfall. I prefer 30fps, never understood the obsession with faster framerates. What's the rush?

I'm sceptical. It sounds a bit like marketing PR spin.
