"We know how important having options that best suit your PC's performance capabilities are," a statement on the game's official site reads. "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. We'll share more details about the update, and when you can expect it to arrive, very soon."

If you haven't purchased the game on PC yet, we definitely recommend holding off if you care about high framerates. Be sure to check back for news on when the update hits.
