Mafia III released today but not everyone was so happy to see it. PC players on Steam realised that the game was locked to 30 FPS. Now, Hangar 13 is promising a Mafia III 60 FPS update and may be available as soon as this weekend.
In “A message to our PC players” the developer said
We know how important having options that best suit your PC’s performance capabilities are. The team has been hard at work ensuring that Mafia III’s performance is consistent across all platforms, and right now the game runs at a solid 30 frames-per-second. We are currently working on an update for PC that will give players the option to play Mafia III at higher framerates.
This was followed by an update as to the status of the patch which they currently have in development.
We currently have a patch running here at the studio that includes 30, 60, and unlimited frames-per-second options in the video menu, among other improvements for the PC version of Mafia III. We’re verifying the patch now to ensure everything is working as expected. If everything goes well, we expect the update to go live this weekend. We will be keeping the PC community up-to-date on the status of the patch throughout the weekend and thank you for all the feedback!
Mafia III is available now for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
