The Crew will let players adjust their frame-rate on PC

Devs are aiming for 60 fps.  

Ubisoft's upcoming open-world racing game The Crew will be 30 frames per second on PS4 and Xbox One, but its developer has said that it's not going to stop PC users from adjusting the frame-rate based on their hardware - as many did with the beta that came with an artificial 30 fps lock.

"Ultimately the performance and the frame-rate will be down to the player's hardware," said The Crew's lead designer Serkan Hassan in an interview with TechRadar. "A few people in the closed beta found ways of unlocking the frame-rate. My understanding at this moment is that we'll be allowing players to do that come the full version as well, unless some other issue comes to light which would block that in any way."

Ubisoft has previously stated that it's aiming for 60 fps on the game's PC version and while it's hesitant to promise it, it sounds like the developer's not going to get in the way of this if your kit can handle it.

The Crew is now due worldwide on 2nd December for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Xbox 360.
