Hopefully, the frame rate at least is something that is ironed out by the time the game releases.
Sony’s PlayStation Meeting announcement, where they finally took the wraps off of the PlayStation 4 Pro, was, while ultimately disappointing, still worth tuning in to if for no other reason than for the new looks at gameplay footage that we got for a whole lot of anticipated games.
One of the games shown off at the event was Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, which Activision demonstrated running on stage on the PS4 Pro with an impressive gameplay section. Activision at that time discussed the notion of a 4K Call of Duty running at 60fps- but the game demo that they showed off was, Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry contends, neither 4K nor 60fps.
Now, Call of Duty has never been much of a looker, of course, so a part of this is not a surprise- what it has always been, however, has been consistently hitting 60fps gameplay. That’s the franchise’s calling card- fluid, 60fps gameplay. So to know that the gameplay demo was not running at that framerate honestly surprises me.
Then again, it was just an early pre-release demo, after all. Maybe Activision and Infinity Ward will have worked out the kinks by the time the game releases in November.
