Gotham Knights is causing controversy among fans as launch week approaches, especially when it comes to game performance. FPS (frames per second) is one of the most vital things in a game or any other kind of video. While most movies tend to display at 24 FPS, games tend to go for 30-60 FPS, with some games offering higher FPS ranges depending on hardware and game settings. If you have a low FPS, the game will appear to stutter, feel less smooth, and won’t convey images particularly satisfyingly. While 30FPS is still common, many are often willing to sacrifice resolution for higher FPS in order to have a silky smooth gaming experience, especially in action-heavy games such as shooters.
Rumors started circulating earlier today that Gotham Knights is locked at 30FPS on consoles, which means you won’t be able to get a higher FPS. Since many games still have 30FPS, it’s not the end of the world, but it’s a limiting factor and makes the game less easy to watch for some gamers. Gotham Knights developer Fleur Martyr confirmed in an official Discord channel for the game (via Okami Games on Twitter) that the game will indeed be limited to 30FPS on consoles with no option to change that. They noted that due to the massive nature of the game, it wouldn’t be as simple as lowering the resolution to get better FPS. You can check out the official press release below.
“I know many of you are wondering about the availability of a performance mode for Gotham Knights on consoles,” Martyr said. “Because of the kinds of features we have in our game, like providing a fully self-contained co-op experience in our highly detailed open world, it’s not as simple as lowering the resolution and to get a higher FPS. . For this reason, our game has no performance/quality toggle option and will run at 30FPS on consoles.”
The backlash has already been quite intense. Given the reasoning, it doesn’t seem like pushback will cause any FPS changes, especially not before launch. Maybe a post-launch patch can offer more options, but that seems pretty unlikely at the moment. It may also offer some clarity as to why Gotham Knights has been canceled for Xbox One and PS4.
Gotham Knights will be released on October 21, 2022 on Xbox Series X|S, PS5 and PC. Does the lack of a higher FPS bother you? Let me know in the comments or contact me Twitter @Cade_Onder.
