The motorcycle racing game MotoGP 17 will be taking full advantage of the Playstation 4 Pro, according to its developer Milestone. The game will reportedly run at 1440p resolution and 60 frames per second, making it look as good and run as smoothly as possible. The game will come out on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
MotoGP 17 will be the first entry in the franchise to run at such a high framerate and look as good as it says it will, though whether or not that turns out to be accurate remains to be seen. However, the versions of the game that aren’t on the Playstation 4 Pro will likely only run at 60 frames per second, as Milestone is counting on the Playstation 4 Pro to provide greater resolution and stability.
The game’s framerate will actually not be locked on the Xbox One and Playstation 4, in the words of Milestone programmer Michael Caletti. The reason behind this will be because unlocking the framerate means that the framerate can get higher or lower depending on the graphical load that’s currently on the consoles.
The PC version of the game, however, will have the option to play with a locked framerate for the opposite reason, to avoid sudden drops or jumps in framerate.
Milestone claims that the Playstation 4 Pro version of MotoGP 17 will be the best-looking out of all of the different versions due to its 1440p resolution and its 60 fps framerate. It will even have HDR support at launch, to make the game look even better.
Along with that, if you have a Playstation 4 Pro, but don’t have a 4K TV, Milestone has also thought of that, and the Playstation 4 Pro version of MotoGP 17 won’t have downsampling. The game is supposed to come out on June 15 of this year, so you don’t have much longer to wait.
