Bethesda Softworks has outlined exactly what PC gamers can expect from their upcoming survival horror game, The Evil Within. According to an FAQ published by Bethesda, the game is locked at 30 frames per second and uses a fixed aspect ratio of 2.35:1, just like what console gamers will experience.
The FAQ states that The Evil Within is designed to be played at 30 FPS, saying that "the team has worked the last four years perfecting the game experience with these settings in mind". This may be all well and good on consoles with limited hardware platforms, but it's not something that will go down well with PC gamers and their powerful graphics cards.
Luckily the game's developers have included several "debug commands" that will allow you to alter the framerate and aspect ratio. Bethesda doesn't recommend that you change these settings as they aren't supported, though we imagine many people will ignore this advice to get the game running more smoothly.
The Evil Within does support 4K resolutions, and comes with several graphics options including SMAA and SSAO. Bethesda recommends a graphics card with 4 GB of VRAM to play this game, and requires 50 GB of free hard drive space.
The Evil Within launches on October 14th on PC, as well as the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
