If you are having problems getting 60 FPS then you should try checking out these settings and playing around with them for a bit for better performance. If you have an issue running the game in full screened mode then you should try Windowed Mode, also try turning V-Sync off. You should also try turning AA Off.

if you are still not hitting the 60 FPS mark then another some other things that I recommend you try is turning MotionBlur off and HBAO on. You can also try playing with the Anistrophic Filter turned to x16.

Nvidia Specific Settings

If you are rocking an Nvidia GPU then here is something that you can do to improve the performance of the game on your system. First of all be sure that you have the latest drivers. Once you are done with that what you need to do is go into the drivers settings and add the game exe file to the list which should be located in the steam folder.

If you want to play the game at 1080p 60 FPS then what you need to do is select Antialiasing Mode to Override any Application Setting and Antialiasing Setting to  x2, you can also go higher if you think your hardware can handle it. Power Managment Mode: prefer max performance

Power Managment Mode should be set to max performance also set Texture Filtering Anistropic sample opti to off. Adjust Vertical Sync to Adaptive 60Hz or Adaptive half refresh rate / 30Hz/fps.
