Naughty Dog is making sure the player’s experience in their upcoming action-adventure, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End won’t impact due to 60fps gameplay.

Speaking with EDGE in their latest issue, game director Bruce Straley confirms that the development team locked Uncharted 4 PlayStation Experience demo at 30fps, despite that it was running above 30 frames per second.

Naughty Dog Won't Push Uncharted 4 For 60fps If It Impacts Player Experience 1

“We’re actually above 30, but we locked it [for the demo]. We’re going to do whatever it takes to make the game we want to make.

If it means we could go for 60 but lose something that would really impact the player’s experience, then it’s our choice as developers to say, ‘Well, we’re going to go for the experience over the 60 frames.'”

A debug station visible at PSX revealed that the game was running at 37fps,

ND’s 30fps lock has always been a norm for PS3 games, including Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune (2007), Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (2009), Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception (2011) & The Last of Us (2013). However The Last of Us PS4 remastered version ran at 1080p/60fps.

Previously, The Last of Us 2 put on ice until Uncharted 4 is done.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be available sometime this year for PlayStation 4.
