Creative director Brian Hayes says 30 FPS with motion blur looks better.
EA Sports UFC 2 will be the next major sports title from the publisher and it will utilize the Ignite Engine to provide a higher level of visual fidelity over its predecessor.
The question is whether it will run at 1080p resolution on Xbox One and PS4. GamingBolt spoke to creative director Brian Hayes about the same, as well what frame rate the game would be targeting. Hayes stated that, “The game runs at 1080p, and renders at 30fps with motion blur.
“We’ve found that going to 60fps doesn’t have a hugely beneficial impact, and people in testing have told us that the game actually looks better at 30fps with motion blur.”
It’s interesting to note this but then again, EA Sports UFC 2 is a different kind of beast from, say, Halo 5: Guardians (try hopping back on to Destiny afterwards. Ugh). Then again, we’ll see for ourselves how the performance is and whether the game itself is superior to the original when it releases in Spring 2016.
Stay tuned for our complete interview with Hayes in the coming days.
