F1 2015 ‘very close’ to 60 fps on PlayStation 4; DiRT 4 Likely to run Similarly


Codemasters believe that they are very close to hitting 60 fps with F1 2015. Game designer Steven Embling talked about how close the development team is to hitting that goal on the PlayStation 4.

"We’re aiming for 60fps and we’re very close to that now on PlayStation 4. Obviously the team are optimizing right until the end and it’s looking like we’re going to hit that target,"

"Everyone who is working on optimization and the art, they need to get used to the new memory budgets that the new generation of consoles will allow them,"

F1 2015 has already been reported to run at 1080p on the PlayStation 4 and 900p on the Xbox One. Similarly DiRT 4, which has made an appearance in both Nvidia's and AMD's drivers is likely to use the same resolutions since it should be using the same engine. F1 2015 is using a new engine built from the ground up for the current generation of hardware, and shows massive visual upgrades over the previous generation.

F1 2015 is the first project from Codemasters to come out on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Codemasters is now in full focus for getting the game ready for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Embling also explained how the team is working on getting the authenticity of each car in F1 2015.

"It’s a bit of a mad rush this time because obviously with the 2015 cars they’re all relatively new, but they’re coming in now and we’re just getting them in the game," Embling said. "We've got unique recordings for every engine now, all the way up until the end of the rev-range. So we can plonk that into the game and it sounds a lot better than previous titles."


F1 2015 is scheduled to launch on June 12. The game will be available for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
