Earlier on today we reported about The Evil Within on PC being locked to 30FPS for the reason of it "Makes more sense for a survival horror game" but now Bethesda has come out and discussed the upcoming horror game on PC, and much more detail.

Bethesda has now addressed the 30FPS lock on the PC version, saying that the developers have locked the frame rate at such a low point because the game was built around that, as the quote above says, but it can be unlocked through debug commands. A FAQ on the game reads: "Shinji Mikami and the team at Tango designed The Evil Within to be played at 30fps and to utilize an aspect ratio of 2.35:1 for all platforms. The team has worked the last four years perfecting the game experience with these settings in mind. For PC players, we'll provide debug commands on how you can alter the framerate and aspect ratio, but these commands and changes are not recommended or supported and we suggest everyone play the game as it was designed and intended for the best experience".

 

The developer has aimed for 1080p as its resolution, but 4K is supported. PC gamers have the option of turning off the cinema-like letterboxing in order to render it at full screen, but this option is not fully supported. PC gamers do get a few additional graphical options to play with, which include fullscreen or window support, AA settings (FXAA, MLAA and SMAA), Shadow Quality (High, Medium, Low), Motion Blur, SSAO, and Reflections.
