Gotham Knights is just days away from its release, and the game’s executive producer has shared some disappointing news. The game will run at 30 FPS only on consoles such as PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. This is quite disappointing for players who have pre-ordered Gotham Knights on console, as there are games that offer up to 4K 60 FPS gameplay experience. Running games at 30 FPS is what you would expect from last-gen consoles or older games that haven’t been upgraded for current-gen consoles. Naturally, many players are upset with this news.

As spotted by Wario64, Gotham Knights executive producer Fleur “Flaoua” Marty revealed in the game’s Discord channel that it will run at 30 FPS on console. Marty said, “I know many of you are wondering about the availability of a performance mode for Gotham Knights on consoles. Due to the types of features we have in our game, like providing a fully untethered co-op experience in our highly detailed open-world, it’s not as straightforward as lowering the resolution and getting a higher FPS. For this reason, our game does not have a performance/quality toggle option and will run at 30FPS on consoles.” Many players haven’t responded well after knowing that Gotham Knights will run at 30 FPS only while playing on consoles.

This news follows the recent Gotham Knights Heroic Assault mode announcement, which is a four-player co-op mode launching next month. While the main campaign supports single-player as well as two-player co-op, the Heroic Assault mode will let four players team up to take down criminals and complete arena-based challenges. While the new game mode sounds great, not being able to play the game at 60 FPS is quite disappointing as it is one of the key features of PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
