    This game is not in 60 FPS in any way shape or form (except for menus for some odd reason). Don’t spread false info, it’s only disappointing.

    • BullockDS

      Yeah, had to learn this the hard way. Is this the source of that nugget of bullshit?

      • Noah Glaser

        Take a chill pill. Some of the videos released were in 60 fps, some elements of the game are in 60 fps. We are not the source. We report what the media we are provided indicates. “learn the hard way”? What does that even mean?? You are acting like there was some serious action against you because a framerate wasn’t to your liking.
