Bethesda’s upcoming post-apocalyptic shooter Rage 2 will run in 1080p resolution at 60FPS on both the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro, id Software has confirmed.

We already heard about id Software’s plan to run the Rage sequel in 60FPS on the enhanced consoles and the studio’s director, Tim Willits, has now confirmed this framerate on both the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro. In a recent interview with Hardcore Gamer, the studio director also confirmed that the shooter will run in 1080p in both consoles. Instead of focusing on resolution, the team decided to prioritize framerate.

“To make it simple, on the enhanced consoles, it runs at 1080p 60 FPS”, Willits said. “On base hardware, it runs at 30 FPS. On PC, it’s uncapped. We went for speed over 4K for the enhanced consoles.”

What are your thoughts on this? Would you have rather seen a 4K mode at 30FPS on the enhanced consoles? Would you prioritize resolution over framerate? Hit the comments below.

Rage 2 is slated for a release on May 14 for Xbox One X, PS4 Pro and PC.

Description:
Dive headfirst into a dystopian world devoid of society, law, and order. RAGE 2 brings together two studio powerhouses – Avalanche Studios, masters of open world insanity, and id Software, creators of the first-person shooter – to deliver a carnival of carnage where you can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything.

Story:
An asteroid has annihilated 80% of the earth’s population, and humanity’s numbers are dwindling. Ruthless and bloodthirsty gangs roam the open roads and the tyrannical Authority seek to rule with an iron fist. As Walker, the last Ranger of the wasteland and a threat to their power, you have been robbed of your home and left for dead. Now you’ll have to rage for justice and freedom. With ludicrous vehicle combat, super-powered first-person mayhem, and an open world full of emergent madness, you will tear across an unforgiving wasteland battling sadistic gangs to find the tools and tech needed to crush the oppressive rule of The Authority once and for all.
