The Evil Within is set to scare up a storm in a few days time, with the console version confirmed to be locked at 30FPS. But, where it is getting interesting, and disappointing, is that the PC version is looking to be locked at 30FPS.




The news is coming from Twitter, with Bethesda Softworks' Senior Producer, Jason Bergman, replying to a question on Twitter, which asked "is TEW targeting 30FPS or 60FPS?". Bergman replied with: "We're 30. Makes more sense for a survival horror game". Yes, you heard that right, because 30FPS is better for a "survival horror game".


This isn't the first cross platform game to have its framerate locked to 30FPS, with The Division locked at 30FPS on PC, as well as The Crew.
