Tom Clancy's The Division

Tom Clancy’s The Division will be running at 30 FPS according to Massive Entertainment managing director David Polfeldt when he spoke to Gamespot. The reason for this is simple: The team wants to focus on more important aspects such as environmental destruction and real-time weather.

“I think we’re shooting for 30fps because it’s a trade-off, right? Graphical fidelity and immersion are more important to us than the frame rate. If we go for [60fps], we’ll have to make a trade-off on fidelity and other things.

“But because we want to have very, very complex destruction and extremely detailed environments; a complete weather system, full day/night cycle…at some point you have to make up your mind: where do you invest? And for us, it’s going to be 30fps.”

What about the resolution of The Division, especially on differing platforms? Polfeldt responded, “Resolution-wise? I don’t know.” So there you go.

Tom Clancy’s The Division is slated to release in 2015 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

    While I think the 1080p vs 720p distinction is usually drastically overplayed, the difference between 30fps and 60fps in a fast paced game like an FPS is significantly more noticeable. Personally, I’d rather have real time weather, destructible environments, etc…but I understand why a certain subset of competitive gamers list 60fps as an important feature.
