Just a teensy confirmation from Watch Dogs: Legion’s live producer Lathieeshe Thillainathan writing as part of a Reddit question and answer: the game will run at 30 frames-per-second in 4K with raytracing enabled on the PlayStation 5. There’s no word on whether the title will have multiple graphical options, such as a 60 frames-per-second mode as well, but that’s the latest for now.
Remember, you’ll be eligible for a free PS4 to PS5 upgrade if you purchase this game on the PlayStation 4, so you’ll benefit from all of the visual bells and whistles on Sony’s next-gen console when you choose to upgrade. We reckon the raytracing is going to look particularly good in this game, as London is famous for its rainy weather.
A true PlayStation veteran, Sammy’s covered the world of PS gaming for years, with an enormous Trophy count to prove it. He also likes tennis games way more than you.
Cool. I’ll wait for the bargain bin on this one, but interested in the look and feel. Glad they haven’t done a OG WatchDogs moment, where they revealed engine footage and lied about the graphics settings.
I’m curious about the DualSense aspect of the game. Probably will wait for the PS5 version just to enjoy the game with some lovely haptics.Maybe when playing as a granny the triggers will get stiff and I’ll be able to feel her knees and joints creaking! <3
This game will be so good with a proper ray tracing implementation. London with a tonne of neon is almost as good a showcase opportunity as it gets with probably only Cyberpunk being able to beat it!
I know 60fps is the buzz word(s) right now but when I think over my best gaming experiences this year, all have been at 30fps and none have felt sluggish or difficult to play.
Developers will need to decide what suits their title best and I can honestly say that so far Miles Morales with the instant loading and ray tracing is the best thing I have seen by a mile and that is 30fps.
I hope there’s 1080p mode with 60 fps & RT. I want 60 fps but I don’t want to sacrifice RT for it, I rather not have 4K, 1080p resolutions is enough for me.
@Medic_Alert personally I’d prefer miles morales at 60fps for the feel when you’re swinging away, but each to their own. This is why options are good so that players can tailor their experience based on what matters most to them with any given title.
@TeapotBuddha I have just finished Spiderman and all the Dlc yesterday and not once did I think ‘I really wish this was smoother’.
The truth is that a good game is a good game and these things don’t fundamentally make or break that as long as they aren’t broken.
Again I feel developers need to find the sweet spot for the game they want to make and not get drowned in the latest community buzz.
This bodes well for the capabilities of PS5 imo…lot of neckbeards in the media and forums have been suggesting that on multiplatform titles it would be 4K for xbox series x and checkerboard or some other upscale solution for PS5, due to the teraflop discrepancy between the machines.
@Medic_Alert trust me, after you play it in 60fps on ps5, you dont wanna go back.
@Amppari but I probably won’t play it at 60fps on PS5. I will in all likelihood play MM with ray tracing because that implementation to me is truly next gen.
I have a laptop that can knock out 100+ fps on many games but ultimately I still play on my PS4 pro.
For me, it is a nice to have and not essential and while I’m not going to turn my nose up at it if it is there I also don’t want to be one of those guys who suddenly seem to not be able to look past it because we are being told that is what next gen is.
4K / 30FPS with RT4K / 60FPS w/o RT2K / 60FPS with RT (similar to Demons Soul)
I’d like to have everything but given the option, I’d take 30fps 4K with RT and enjoy every minute. Really can’t wait to play this game.
London needs raytracing(especially as it rains all the time) I will get this for the PS5 next year sometime once I finish my PS4 backlog. I really liked the 2nd one(especially the WARP Records tunes on it like my favourite track ever was on it i.e LFO – LFO)
Until the mid-gen update can do raytracing and 60fps please give me the option to turn off raytracing for better framerates.
4k, 30fps 1440p, 60fps1080p, 120 fpsShould be the options for gaming, but only time will tell if its implemented.
@LiamCroft I Agree, I have yet to enjoy my favorites in 60FPS due to a lack of owning a Ps4Pro
@Dr_ENT I would take 1440 with RT and 60 on literally every single game and never look back. Heck, I’d even take 1080 with RT and 60 if I have to. Lol
@wiiware All action games should have a 60fps mode with dynamic res and the option to turn raytracing on or off.Non action games can have 30fps if it suits the game,I have no intention of ever playing this watchdogs game for various reasons, but it should become standard to have these options moving forward.
And this is why you give people options so there’s no arguments over 30 vs 60. They just need to have a 1440p or 1080p 60fps option for those of us that prefer smoothness over visuals and then everyone can be happy.
