The PC port of The Evil Within will be locked at 30 frames-per-second, just like the console version, Bethesda has confirmed.
Despite requiring a hefty PC to run it on recommended settings, The Evil Within will still be locked at 30FPS on PC, similar to the Xbox One and PS4 versions.
Bethesda confirmed this and much more in a forum post. “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,” it reads.
“The team has worked the last four years perfecting the game experience with these settings in mind.”
Bethesda added that it will provide a list of debug commands that would let you unlock the game’s frame rate and aspect ratio, though it warned that they’re not recommended or supported.
The publisher also added that the 4GB VRAM requirement on PC is due to new-gen consoles having 8GB of unified ram. The PC version being an identical port, is why it requires this amount of VRAM.
