Mass Effect: Andromeda Has Uncapped Framerate On PC; Renders At 900P On Xbox One
Mass Effect: Andromeda will have an uncapped framerate on PC, while the PS4 and Xbox One versions will be locked to 30FPS. In addition, Bioware’s upcoming next Mass Effect installment will render at 900p on Xbox One, and 1080p on PS4.
At least, that’s what Bioware’s general manager, Aaryn Flynn, has stated on the Neogaf forums earlier today, following rumors that the Xbox version would run at 720p.
“That’s incorrect. As Mark Cerny from Sony has shared, Mass Effect: Andromeda is running at 1800p with checkerboard rendering on PS4 Pro”, Flynn wrote.
“Last I checked, we were like other Frostbite games on PS4 and XBox One – 1080p and 900p respectively. All are at 30 fps. PC has uncapped framerate. I think we’ve even gotten over the 30 fps cap in cutscenes, but I’ll double-check in the next couple of weeks.”
Judging from Flynn’s answer, Andromeda currently renders in 900p on Xbox One, but this might still change as the title is still being actively worked on.
Although the console versions of Andromeda will be locked to 30 frames per second, the PC version will have an uncapped framerate.
Bioware officially announced the next Mass Effect installment during EA’s E3 2015 press conference.
