YouTube premieres 60 fps video with Battlefield: Hardline trailer

Purdy smoove, eh?

YouTube is finally bolstering its video playback to support 60 frames-per-second.

Soon you'll be able to keep up with the buttery smooth gameplay that this latest generation of consoles frequently boasts about. "Your video game footage with crazy high frame rates will soon look as awesome on YouTube as it does when you're playing, when we launch support for 48 and even 60 frames per second in the coming months," YouTube noted on its company blog.

It further noted that some developers are previewing their 60 fps videos on the YouTube Creator Channel. This includes some footage of Visceral's upcoming cops & robbers shooter Battlefield: Hardline, along with already existing titles like Titanfall.

YouTube is planning to bring all sorts of other new features to its service including fan-funding options, the ability to easily check traffic analytics, tag one's colleagues in a "credits creator", and upload sound effect samples in an audio log. For the full list of upcoming features, check out the YouTube Creator Blogspot.
