Sonic Frontiers will officially release to the general public tomorrow, and Sega has formally revealed the sport’s frame rates for each the current-gen and last-gen console versions.
Digital Trends reached out to Sega after some miscommunication across the game’s framerates during our preview period. On Monday, the corporate confirmed the proper frame rates for every console/platform, in addition to the performance specs that include them, so you can determine which speed is correct for you.
The outcomes are about what you’d expect. The sport can hit 60 fps on current gen consoles, but will cap at 30 on older hardware. The official frame rates for Sonic Frontiers are as follows.
- PS5: Performance Mode = 1080p at as much as 60 fps/Resolution Mode = As much as 4K dynamic resolution at 30 fps
- PS4: Dynamic resolution as much as 1080p at 30 fps
- Xbox Series X/S: Performance Mode = 1080p at as much as 60 fps/Resolution Mode = As much as 4K dynamic resolution at 30 fps
- Xbox One: Dynamic resolution as much as 1080p at 30 fps
- Nintendo Switch: Dynamic resolution as much as 720p at 30 fps (each handheld and docked)
- Steam: Dynamic resolution as much as 4K at 60 fps (depending on individual PC specs)
If you should have the optimal gameplay experience of exploring the Starfall Islands with Sonic, 60 fps is your best bet. Nevertheless, if you must take things a bit of slower, or should you simply don’t have the PS5 nor Xbox Series X/S, 30 fps could also be more your speed.
Sonic Frontiers will likely be available on November 8 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
