Destiny, the highly-anticipated effort from Bungie will be locked at 30fps, although PS4 could probably go up to 60fps, because of last-gen consoles limits, Bungie has made known in a recent talk with Venture Beat.
When asked why the game was capped when next-gen consoles could push the boundaries even further, Jason Sussman who is the senior environment artist at Bungie said, “it’s a lot of different things”.
“I could get really technical, but I’d bore you to death. A lot has to do with performance. We’re cross-platform, so we had to be very delicate with all four consoles, making sure they have the same experience, that it looks as good as it possibly can on all these consoles. A lot goes into that, from geometry to textures to post effects to particles to how many players you get on the screen. We’re always balancing that out to make sure everyone gets the same experience,” he added.
Destiny is set to release on PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360 on September 9th, 2014. I had a taste of the game through the PS4 exclusive alpha, and I’ve concluded that it’s a day one purchase for me, and a title that I’ll be playing for a very long time. I’m really excited for Destiny.
Did you play the alpha? What are you thoughts on it?
