Watch Dogs on PS4 runs at 30fps, confirms Ubisoft

The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Watch Dogs will run at 30fps, publisher Ubisoft has confirmed.

Speaking to, Creative Director Jonathan Morin said, “Right now the frame rate we’re focusing on [is] a steady 30 [FPS], adding, “there’s always a balance, especially for open world between simulation and the rest.”

“I think for where we are, the most important thing is the steadiness and [ensuring] that it’s always capped the same so when you play it it feels right.”

Unfortunately, Morin couldn’t reveal whether next-generation versions of the hotly-anticipated sci-fi adventure would run at a native 720p or 1080p.

Watch Dogs is set in an open-world Chicago, and sees player character Aiden Pearce waging informational warfare on his enemies by hacking everything from phones to traffic lights. The game combines third-person shooting, driving and parkour-based platforming to create a high-octane adventure with a near-futuristic twist.

Watch Dogs is scheduled to ship on PS4 on November 29, with the PS3, PC, Xbox 360 and Wii U editions arriving on November 22.
