Berserk and The Band of The Hawk on PS4 Runs at 30 FPS; PS4 Is Lead Development Platform

on September 17, 2016 2:55 PM

Berserk and The Band of The Hawk will release on a whole bunch of platforms, including PS4, PS3, PS Vita and PC (but not Xbox One), and DualShockers was able to ask about performance during a chat with Producer Hisashi Koinuma.

First of all, we learn that PS4 will run the game at 30 FPS, like all consoles, but frame rate settings on PC are still undecided.

We also hear that the PS4 is the lead development platform, as the team is working on the game with the specs of Sony’s latest console in mind, and then porting it to PS3 and PS Vita, contrary to what has been done in some cases in the past.

Asked about whether the team would do something to support the additional power of PS4 Pro, Koinuma-san mentioned that at this point the team hasn’t heard specific details from Sony on what they can do to support the new console, so they can’t yet answer about it, beyond the basic fact that the game will work on PS4 Pro.

Incidentally, this is an answer I heard from quite a few developers at Tokyo Game Show.
