Forza Horizon 2 Xbox One runs at 1080p & 30 fps
Forza Horizon 2 has been confirmed to display at 1080p on Xbox One, and it’ll run at 30 frames per second.
Speaking with IGN, creative director Ralph Fulton confirmed that the racer will display at 1080p with 30 frames locked.
Explaining the numbers, Fulton said, “I think what we did on Horizon was demonstrate that, and this is really important, a locked frame rate that’s absolutely solid and never drops is the most important thing for our game. 30 [frames-per-second] actually enables us to realize that experience.”
“I think I remember that’s always a hot-button topic, until a game comes out and people go, ‘Oh, this actually really works.’ But 1080p was an absolute must for us; it’s the benchmark for next-gen.”
While Forza Motorsport 5 ran at 60 FPS, it’s worth noting that Horizon 2 is an open world title that will be streaming a lot of data and environmental assets all the time.
“The biggest difference is that, obviously, we’re an open-world streaming game,” Fulton acknowledged. “We need to be able to drive in any direction at up to 270 miles an hour, if you’re gonna soup up a Veyron or something like that.”
“So one of the big technical challenges that we had to face was making sure that we could stream in a world that is next-gen beautiful, but fast enough to keep up with the fastest car. That’s a huge tech challenge but it’s one that our guys just eat up.”
