Capcom has confirmed exactly how Dragon's Dogma 2 will run

In the near future, RPG enthusiasts can anticipate the arrival of Dragon’s Dogma 2, promising another captivating adventure filled with epic monster battles and expansive exploration. 

My recent preview experience with Capcom's sequel left me enchanted, despite occasionally losing myself in the wilderness and indulging in chaotic encounters, such as hurling foes off cliffs. 

The prospect of embarking on quests and leaving a lasting impact on this world beyond mere mischief has me eagerly awaiting its release, even if I'll be constrained to playing it at 30 frames per second on console.

In a recent interview with Game Informer, director Hideaki Itsuno addressed concerns regarding performance on PS5 and Xbox, assuaging fears about subpar performance for an action RPG heavily reliant on player movement and reflexes. 

Itsuno confirmed that the game will feature an uncapped framerate aiming to maintain or exceed 30 FPS across all consoles, with some customizable functions available but no distinct "performance" or "fidelity" modes typically seen in other AAA titles.

While Dragon’s Dogma 2 may not offer the performance consistency found in some PC setups, my firsthand experience with the game suggests that occasional fluctuations in performance did not significantly detract from the overall gameplay experience. 

Even during intense battles against formidable foes, I rarely encountered noticeable dips in visual quality or performance hindrances that impeded my ability to execute required actions effectively. 

Despite potential concerns over the absence of multiple save files, reminiscent of Bloodborne's limitations, I remain optimistic about the game's potential to captivate players and become a beloved classic, much like its predecessors.

Nevertheless, fans express apprehension over potential issues with inconsistent performance and frame pacing, drawing parallels to past experiences with titles like Bloodborne, where such issues persisted without resolution. 

While hardware limitations may have contributed to past performance issues, the prevalence of the RE Engine in other successful titles like Resident Evil 4 and Devil May Cry 5 underscores the importance of optimizing performance for Dragon’s Dogma 2, ensuring a smooth and immersive gameplay experience for players.
