The Evil Within is Designed to be Played at 30Fps, Says Bethesda

By   /   Oct 9, 2014

The Evil Within which is being considered by some as the revival of survival horror genre has been designed to be played at 30 frames per second as stated by Bethesda.

But if PC gamers want to experience the horror of the game at higher frame rates and are not happy with these settings, then with the use of debug commands they can easily push The Evil Within Beyond the recommended 30Fps.

By default, the PC version of the game will be locked at an aspect ratio of 2.35:1 with 30Fps and alteration of these setting is not recommended by the developer.

“Shinji Mikami and the team at Tango designed The Evil Within to be played at 30fps and to utilize an aspect ratio of 2.35:1 for all platforms. The team has worked the last four years perfecting the game experience with these settings in mind. For PC players, we’ll provide debug commands on how you can alter the frame rate and aspect ratio, but these commands and changes are not recommended or supported and we suggest everyone play the game as it was designed and intended for the best experience.”

Furthermore, Bethesda also confirmed that The Evil Within does support 4K resolution and if your monitor and video card is capable enough, the engine can even go higher.

Lastly, the reason behind the requirement of 4GB VRAM was explained and according to Bethesda, both PS4 and Xbox One are using 8GB of unified RAM which can be used for both video and system memory.

So due to the PC version being similar in functionality, they are recommending 4GB of system memory with 4GB of VRAM. But if your gaming rig can’t satisfy that hefty VRAM requirement, check out the minimum system requirements here.

The Evil Within is just a few days away and is slated to release on October 14 for PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One and PC.
