Slightly Mad Studio’s Project Cars is on track for a 2014 release but as the release date draws near, people are questioning whether it will still run at 60 fps or not. According to Ian Bell, Head of Studio at Slightly Mad Studios, they are still aiming for 60 fps on the PS4 and Xbox One.
Project Cars is the upcoming Racing Simulator from Slightly Mad Studios. The unique thing about this game is that it was mostly funded by the public and started off as an indie project. It gained a lot of popularity due to its photo-realistic graphics on the PC.
Recently Project Cars was unveiled for the first time on the PS4 and it looked great, almost as good as it looks on the PC. This came as a surprise, especially since it was confirmed that the game is running at close to 60 fps on the PS4.
Ian Bell took it to himself to confirm their frame rate target for both the PS4 and Xbox One. Speaking about the frame rate, he said: “We’re still aiming for 60 FPS on those consoles.” Here the consoles refer to PS4 and Xbox One, not Wii U.
When questioned whether 60 fps is possible at all on the PS4/XBO, he replied: “We’re already there on PS4, so high : )”
Since Project Cars official site already lists 1080p and 60 fps as the target for PS4, it is definitely possible that the game might run on that resolution and fps on the PS4, even though the 60 fps comment from Ian Bell didn’t talk about the resolution.
He has also showed commitment for the game on PS4 and confirmed that they will support all PS4 wheels, whether it means patching the game after release or getting the support in there day 1.
Seems like the PS4 build is coming off well against the PC build, as the recently released trailer was actually composed of footage from both PC and PS4, confirmed by Ian Bell.
PS4 and PC in that trailer as far as I know.
PC was a single stock GTX 680.
Project Cars is set to release this Fall on the PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, SteamOS and PC. Yes, it is releasing on such a wide variety of platforms so the developers definitely deserve praise if they manage to port it to all these, and they end up being decent ports.
