Game news Gotham Knights: bad news for PS5 and Xbox Series players, game technology limits console performance
A few days before its release, Gotham Knights continues its communication campaign. Today, it is the producer Fleur Marty who wanted to make a small point of clarification concerning the console versions of the software. As much to say it right away, the producer brings some rather disappointing news.
Exclusive to PC and current-gen consoles
Gotham Knights is eagerly awaited by fans of DC Comics and more particularly of the dark knight. The software, which presents itself as an heir to the saga Arkham (but that tells a whole different story, let’s remember), must feature the disciples of Batman, namely Batgirl, Robin, Nightwing and Red Hood, for an unprecedented adventure. The black knight is dead, his acolytes must now watch over Gotham City in place of their master.
Unpublished story, mechanisms inherited from Arkham and brought up to date… the title of Warner Bros. Montreal has more than one trick up its sleeve to impress us and turn out to be a resounding success. Unfortunately, a large number of players and fans of the license will not have the chance to launch the software. Because, Gotham Knights is “only” released on PC, Xbox Series and PS5. Warner has decided to skip the old-gen versions, no doubt to offer the best possible rendering. A choice that turned out to be wise? To tell the truth, nothing is certain, all the more so after the declarations of Fleur Marty, producer of the title, which suggests that the console versions will not necessarily make the most of the most recent machines.
A game capped at 30 FPS
Big disappointment for current-gen players who expected to browse Gotham Knights in the best conditions. Fleur Marty has just revealed information that is far from trivial, which should disappoint more than one. The software would be “capped” at 30 FPS on PS5 and Xbox Series, the fault of the technology embedded in the game which does not offer the possibility of exploiting the performance mode of these machines.
I know many of you are wondering about the availability of performance mode on consoles. Because of the features of our game, such as providing an untethered co-op experience in a highly detailed open world, you can’t just lower the resolution and get a FPS boost. For this, our title does not offer options regarding performance/quality modes and will run at 30 FPS on consoles.
