Life is Strange: True Colors plays at 30 frames per second on the PS5 and XSX for a more cinematic experience
Life is Strange: True Colors was ultimately released, and it received positive reviews from critics. However, as gamers got their hands on the game, they discovered something strange. The game is limited at 30fps on both new-gen consoles, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, with no 60fps option.
It didn’t take long for people to begin criticizing Deck Nine’s choice, forcing the company to respond on Twitter. According to the creator, they chose to cap the game at 30fps in order to provide a more dramatic experience.
In terms of frame rate, Life is Strange: True Colors was created as a narrative journey focused on cinematic performance. Because of the 30fps limitation, we were able to achieve better cinematic quality across all platforms.
Many gamers are criticizing this choice, and I’m not sure why it didn’t give everyone who wants it the option to play at 60 frames per second. The company’s assertion is even more bizarre when we consider that the game operates at 60 frames per second on the PC version.
Life is Strange: True Colors is currently available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
