The PlayStation 4 version of Dying Light will run in 1080p at 30fps, developer Techland (Dead Island) has confirmed. Lead designer Maciej Binkowski revealed the figure in response to a fan question on Ask.fm.
Resolution and frame rate details were not provided for the Xbox One edition of the game. We’ve followed up with Techland to find out what kind of graphical benchmarks Xbox fans can expect.
Back in 2013, Techland said it was hoping Dying Light would run in 1080p/60fps across PS4 and Xbox One. Game development is a fluid, ongoing process, so it’s not entirely surprising to see the frame rate drop, at least on PS4, to 30fps for the final version of the game.
That said, Techland has not yet explained why it wasn’t able to reach its original frame rate target for the open-world zombie game. We’ll update this post with anything we hear back from Techland.
Dying Light’s release date is January 27, 2015 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game was originally expected to also come to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but those versions were recently canceled.
