Game news Battlefield 2042: 120 fps frame rate on PS5 and Xbox Series? Developers talk about it
In addition to 4K (and even an 8K proudly depicted on certain packaging), the frame rate at 120 frames per second remains one of the arguments of this new generation of consoles. Could Battlefield 2042 Benefit From This? Many players hope so, and DICE wanted to answer that particular question.
One of the challenges of this new generation of consoles is to be able to run games in 4K and sixty frames per second over and over again. Even so, the frame rate at 120FPS is a reality and some very rare titles benefit from it: The only condition is of course an adequate screen … and keep your fingers crossed that the developers offer such an option.
No 120FPS for Battlefield 2042, at least for now
So, some people wondered if the highly anticipated Battlefield 2042 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series would get such treatment: also one of them asked the question about ResetERA to a developer of the verified nickname Elenarie, who hurried to answer sincerely on the famous forum (besides, it again bought little).
Internet users: Can you give us some information about 120hz mode support? Will there only be a 120 Hz mode in the game (e.g. with a lower image resolution)?
DICE : This is something we can possibly think about after starting. Definition isn’t the problem, but we hit 128 player CPUs pretty hard and the CPU requirements from 60 FPS to 120 FPS aren’t easy. Reducing the resolution doesn’t help much.
When starting is therefore PS5 and Xbox series players won’t be able to run Battlefield 2042 at 120 frames per second, although DICE isn’t ruling out this possibility in the future. Maybe a good surprise in the near future?
As a reminder Electronic Arts FPS launches November 19th for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series and Xbox Series.
