The open world organised crime-based Mafia III is out today for PC and consoles, and with review copies being withheld until today's launch, you'll have to wait a little bit longer before the general critical response is known. But that hasn't stopped some negative feedback popping up due to the PC version being locked at 30fps. In a statement 2K has advised that a patch is on its way to unlock the frame-rate, but at launch PC gamers will have to make do with a mere 30fps.

Which really, isn't the end of the world. But hey, once you get accustomed to a rock-solid 60fps, there's no going back. At least, that's what I'm told.

In the statement 2K went on to state that they'll also look to implement features based on what users want, visually. Like, tweaking the alpha-blend shade mapping. Or something.
"We are currently working on an update for PC that will give players the option to play Mafia 3 at higher framerates. We'll share more details about the update, and when you can expect it to arrive, very soon. In the meantime, the team welcomes feedback and would like to hear from you about what performance adjustment options are important to you. We're actively considering a number of additional post-launch improvements on PC that would give players more control over how they can tailor the game's experience to suit their rig's performance."


Oh, and here's the snazzy launch trailer.

It's so cool they revealed this after the pre orders were in. Every time a developer does this it reinforces my decision to not pre order games any more.

They didn't give out review codes until the game was already on sale, pretty much a red flag right there

Maybe if you're gaming in the 90's. 120/144hz monitors are king of the hill, anything under 100fps and it's not worth playing. Pffft 60fps, lol.
