PayDay 2: Crimewave Edition On On PS4/Xbox One Will Run At 1080p At 35-40FPS For Majority Of Time: Dev

PayDay2: Crimewave Edition will launch on PS4 and Xbox One in June 2015. Today, Overkill has announced some interesting new details regarding at what resolution and FPS, PayDay2: Crimewave Edition will run on PS4 and Xbox One.

It’s native 1080p on both platforms, but not 60FPS, and the aim of development team is to get the game running at 35-40FPS for the majority of the time, according to details shared by Producer Almi Listo.

PayDay CrimeWave Edition

Speaking to our friend at VideoGamer, Almi Listo said:

“I can’t give a specific number. We’re pushing it as high as we possibly can. Say hypothetically Payday 2 was 30fps roughly – between 25fps and 30fps on [Xbox 360 and PS3] – then I would say at least 35/40fps [on PS4 and Xbox One]. But I would rather have our community be surprised by the improved fps than disappointed by us saying, ‘Yeah, it’s going to be 65fps’.”

In addition to this, Listo explained that the reason behind why development team at Overkill didn’t go for 60FPS for PayDay2: Crimewave Edition on PS4 and Xbox One. According to Listo, 60FPS, would have come at a cost of number of enemies on-screen.

“What people have to realise is that, hypothetically saying, if we weren’t able to go 60fps, we could do that, but that would mean we could only show four enemies at a time on-screen,” he continued. “And that isn’t what Payday is about. Payday is about the onslaught of police officers coming at you at the same time, 20-30 rushing you. And that’s something people have to take note of when they do those comparisons.

“Those AAA games, if I may generalise, they always keep these things in mind and they might design the game with that in mind. But with us, we focus first and foremost on making it the best gameplay experience it can be and then we focus on making it look as good as possible.”
