Running at 30 fps provides a smooth experience when driving in this open world powered by AllDrive.
We are listening and targeting 60 FPS in the future.

 

 

We don't have an ETA for this at the moment but we hope you find this info helpful.

Yes it is true the Need For Speed Rivals on PC will be locked at 30 fps. One of the develepors said this:

 

"Anything can happen in AllDrive. That's the key innovation with this game. You don't have single-player, co-op or multiplayer. It just happens seamlessly.I could be playing the game, setting a time, and all of a sudden you could come into that world, and you could be carrying AI, I could be carrying AI, and all of a sudden, on that screen, there are a lot of cars. We always have to budget for the worst case scenario.So in this case we've prioritised the gameplay, because we think 30fps is giving a satisfactory experience."

 

If this helped you remember to give it XP and accept it as a solution for any other gamers with this problem!

WOW

Test Drive Unlimited does/did what "AllDrive" claims to do and, guess what? No 30fps cap. I call bull****.

I won't be touching that game with a foot long pole.

it's been confirmed by TeamVVV that you can go above 30fps in the pc version but he never said if it was uncapped or capped at 60fps

I don't think so

"The official word – even at this point – is that all versions will be locked at 30fps. Since TeamVVV got its hands on the PC build, though, we are pretty sure that they can be considered reliable."

One of the develepors said this: ... That's the key innovation with this game. ... because we think 30fps is giving a satisfactory experience.

In other words, this game sucks but it sucks even more on PC. 

 

No matter if you have a 700$ video card, the game will look and act like you have a 30$  video card. 

 

I`m so glad i din`t buy this crap. 

 

What EA has done with this series its just beyond disgrace.

I kind of liked most wanted and hot pursuit, but Iam not even going to touch rivals because of that 30 fps lock

Thirty frames per second is not acceptable, not for this game, not for any PC game and not even for the new consoles. They better patch this.

I agree.

And in this case, the game even uses an engine that already works fine with Battlefield 4 (Frostbite 3).

This just shows how they don't care about PC players...

Well said, it's just not acceptable on PC.
