Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is back in the news cycle this week after an extended look at gameplay. It’s an impressive showcase, especially if you watch it in 4K, and even the 3D audio is impressive. While it obviously looks wonderful at its full resolution, what about frame rate?
Speaking with Japanese magazine Famitsu, Insomniac Games has elaborated on performance options available in Rift Apart. As you can read in the interview, the PlayStation 5 exclusive will feature two modes: one running at 4K and 30 frames per second, and another running at a “lower resolution” at 60 frames per second. The developer also shared the news itself in the below tweet:
This is very similar to performance options in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, also coming from Insomniac. While we don’t know the exact resolution of the 60fps mode, it will be using temporal injection, which will essentially improve the picture quality to 4K levels. It seems the studio is keen on giving players the choice between higher detail or smoother performance, which is always nice to have.
