Gotham Knights locked at 30 FPS on console with no performance mode

Fleur Marty, an executive producer at WB Games Montreal, revealed in a leaked DM that the upcoming game will be locked in at 30 FPS on consoles and will not have a performance mode option.

Marty explained, “Due to the types of features we have in our game, like provide fully untethered co-op experience in our highly detailed open-world, it’s not as straightforward as lowering the resolution and getting a higher FPS.”

Predictably, fans patiently awaiting Gotham Knights’ launch weren’t too happy with the news.

One fan said, “Can’t decide if I am more disappointed by the fact it is only 30, or that they were clearly trying to keep that a secret until reviews drop.”

Another added this news won’t dissuade their excitement, “Still gonna be a great game. The frame rate does not determine whether a game will be good or not.”

With Gotham Knights launch less than a week away only time will tell if the game meets fans expectations.
