    PSA: Mafia 3 currently locked at 30 FPS on PC

    Just a heads up, if you're considering buying Mafia 3 on PC, be aware that it's currently capped at 30 FPS on PC regardless of your hardware capability.

    YouTuber TotalBiscuit says he's been in touch with 2K and they've verified that it does have a 30 FPS cap, but that improvements are "coming soon".

    A 30 FPS cap for a AAA PC game is ridiculous in this day and age, and it's making me seriously consider cancelling my pre-order.

    Edit: 2K's official statement:

    A message to our PC players

    We know how important having options that best suit your PC’s performance capabilities are. 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. 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. It’s been an incredible journey developing Mafia III and we couldn’t be more excited to get the game in your hands and hear what you think!
    Edit 2: Looks like a patch that will add 60 FPS and Unlimited FPS options may drop this weekend.

    We currently have a patch running here at the studio that includes 30, 60, and unlimited frames-per-second options in the video menu, among other improvements for the PC version of Mafia III. We’re verifying the patch now to ensure everything is working as expected. If everything goes well, we expect the update to go live this weekend. We will be keeping the PC community up-to-date on the status of the patch throughout the weekend and thank you for all the feedback!

    Maybe people should also consider if the game will be stable at more than 30 FPS?

    Take GTA games that used RenderWare for example, the game will act like weird on 40+ FPS while works smooth on 30 FPS.

    But still if the devs at 2k already tested that game at more than 30 FPS then there's no reason to lock it up unless they've seen a bug.

    Nah, it shipped with a 30 FPS lock, but 2K has released a patch since then that removed it. You now have 30 FPS, 60 FPS and Unlimited options.
