Starfield Confirmed to Run at 30fps on Xbox Series X|S
Starfield fans who plan on playing the highly anticipated game on consoles received disappointing news during not-E3 2023. Game director Todd Howard confirmed that there will be no performance mode available, meaning that the game will be locked to 30 frames per second (fps) on Xbox Series X|S.
In an interview with IGN, Howard explained that the decision to lock the game at 30fps was made to ensure consistency in performance. While the game will run at 4K resolution on Xbox Series X and 1440p on Xbox Series S, Howard emphasized the team’s desire to maintain fidelity and visual quality without sacrificing any aspects of the game.
